It's that time of the year again! Controversial and hit reality TV show Bigg Boss will soon return with its 9th season and is expected to air from mid-September with a changed format.
It's not just the format of the show that will be different. Report is that Salman Khan will be returning as the host of the show. Rumours were flying earlier that Farah Khan will be hosting the show again after having hosted the eighth season.
As far as the contestants of the show are concerned, the confirmed list is not out yet, but the tentative list looks like this:
Rumors are that the 'pure and pious' Radhe Maa has been approached for the show. Well, after all the controversy about her 'godly businesses' and her clothes, it would be fun to see how she will bless the Bigg Boss house with her presence. "Radhe Maa has been approached by the production house as people are ­interested in knowing more about her. But she is yet to give her confirmation," says a source close to the production house.
After getting fired from the house of Housing.com, seeing Rahul Yadav in Bigg Boss' house will be interesting, he will have to be on his best behavior if he doesn't want to be kicked out of this house as well. Confirming that the makers of the show approached him, Yadav posted on Facebook: "And the Big Boss talks are getting serious. WTF! Any advice? [I really don’t know what this Big Boss really is. Not watched TV from 13 yrs] (sic)."
The season 4 of Roadies was a controversial one, all thanks to Gurbani, well known as VJ Bani. Her free spirit and love for tattoos got her a lot of followers. Let's see what new aspect of Bani's personality will be exposed in the show.
Remember the Makdee girl? Well, she has been in news recently for different reasons, but we all loved Shweta Prasad in Iqbal and Makdee. After her sex scandal, Bollywood embraced her and it will be interesting to see if Bigg Boss embraces her too. However, Shweta denied it, ­saying, "No, I am not participating in Bigg Boss, please avoid pseudo news about it. Zero ­verification! (sic)," she posted on Facebook on Monday night.
The little Anjali from Kuch Kuch Hota Hai came back in our lives with her role in Student of the Year, then Jhalak Dikhla Jaa and then with her partner in another reality show, she is one person who is perfect to be in a show like Bigg Boss, hoping for some drama there. However, Sana was approached for the show but she said that she will not be taking it up right now.
She won a dance reality show with her partner, Rithwik Dhanjani, and has been popular for her role in Pavitra Rishta, and looking at past records, TV stars dominate this show. Her popularity might just help her win this show too, but of course there is tough competition.
She has been in news for her troubled marriage. On a dance reality show with her partner, Rashami came out with a lot of details about her marriage. Famous for her role in Uttaran, Desai will be an interesting contestant on the show and will hopefully give a tough competition to Asha Negi.
This Veerji from TV serial Veera is very popular among the girls; his 'chocolate boy' image can win the hearts of the contestants and the audience. However, Shivin has decided not to be a part of the show as he is quite preoccupied with another project. "Bigg Boss is a good spicy show, but I have no intention of participating in it right now, as I am already busy with another show," he tells us.
