The brains behind Bigg Boss 9 are facing the challenge of declining TRPs, but they have a set answer to it; get more wild card entries. Roar actor Nora Fatehi and former Kingfisher calendar girl Gizele Thakral are all set to join the current season of Bigg Boss 9.
Norah Fatehi has featured in Telugu versions of hit films like Baahubali and Kick. The Canada born model-actor also worked in the Hindi movie Crazy Cukkad Family and Roar. She also had a special appearance in Emraan Hashmi-starrer Mr X.
Gizele Thakral featured in the Kingfisher calendar in 2011. She has participated in reality shows like Survivors India and Welcome: Baazi Mehmaan Nawazi Ki. Thakral is also the winner of Miss Best Body and Miss Potential titles in 2005’s Gladrags Model Hunt. She is rumoured to have dated cricketer Yuvraj Singh in the past.
Four wild card contestants have already entered Bigg Boss 9: Rishabh Sinha, Puneet Vashishtha, Kawaljit Singh and Priya Malik. Of these, Puneet was voted out within a week of his entry. Nora and Gizelle will be the fifth and sixth wild card entries on the show. Now, only nine contestants are left in the race to win this year’s Bigg Boss: Kishwar, Rishabh, Suyyash, Digangana, Rochelle, Mandana, Kawaljit, Priya and Prince. Nora and Gisele’s entry will be aired on Monday night, a source from COLORS said.
Will the show’s oomph factor be stepped up with the two new entries? Only time will tell. Stay tuned for the latest updates from Bigg Boss 9.
