The makers of Bigg Boss have not revealed much about the upcoming 13th season of the popular and controversial reality show hosted by Salman Khan but reports are already abuzz with what to expect. The final list of contestants is unveiled only on the day the show premieres but a fresh report has now claimed to name of all the celebrities participating in Bigg Boss 13.

The ghost team will have six people including Meghna Malik, Pavitra Punia and Mahika Sharma. On the other hand, Devoleena Bhattacharjee, Rashmi Desai, Dayanand Shetty, Rajpal Yadav, Siddhart Shukla will be in players team.”

Interestingly, of these names, Rashami and Rajpal have already said they will not feature on the show this year. “Like every year, this year too I have been offered the show, but due to prior film commitments I won’t be able to do the show.

The source further revealed details of the format of the show to the entertainment website: “The contestants who will be all celebrity this year will be divided into two groups, each group consisting of at least six people. The two groups will be that of ‘players’ and ‘ghosts’. They will be unaware about each other and the task of the players would be to unmask ghost and make their way inside the house while Ghost need to stay unmasked and stop players from entering.”
