After teasing fans with four promo videos involving the show’s host Salman Khan, the premiere date for Bigg Boss 9 was finally announced: October 11.

Though the contestants participating in the show are only revealed on the day the show premieres, the buzz around rumoured list of contestants starts building up weeks before that.

Here, we list names of the people who were approached for the show but have refused the offer.

The ‘rockstar baba’ said no in a stylish fashion, unique to his own character: He said that he is willing to participate if he will be allowed 3-4 hours outside the house everyday to meet his followers. Defeats the whole purpose of a show that thrives on cutting out the contestants from the outside world, even mobiles or internet are not allowed.
