Bigg Boss 12: These 13 celebrities ‘shortlisted’ for this year’s reality show


The promotional video of Bigg Boss 12 reality show featuring Salman Khan was recently released. The video has confirmed the earlier speculations that this year, the contestants will consist of real-life jodis (couples).

In the video, Salman is seen addressing a make-shift classroom while taking attendance as his ‘pupil’ couple reply in affirmative about their presence. The short video then ends with Salman saying, “This time the ABC of the game will change when couple enter the house.”

The video, posted by Colors TV boss Raj Nayak, has already been viewed by over quarter million people on his Facebook page. Meanwhile, an entertainment website reported that 13 celebrities had already been confirmed for this year’s show. Keeping with the tradition of controversial characters joining the reality show, some of these names have been hogged headlines for wrongs reasons.

They include Dipika Kakar and Shoaib Ibrahim, TV actors Rithvik Dhanjani and Asha Negi, love birds Milind Soman and Ankita Konwar and Kratika Sengar and Nikitin Dheer among others, reported MenXp website.

Dipika and Shoib got married earlier this year and the couple has often trended on internet since their wedding particularly during the Muslims’ Holy month of Ramadan, when Dipika was seen observing Islamic festival with enormous religious fervour. Madly in love, Dipika had even announced that she will quit acting if Shoaib asked her to do so.

Milind and Ankita have constantly faced the trolling by haters, who targeted the former model for choosing to marry a girl, more than half his age. But, the constant trolling did not deter the couple from getting married this summer.

There are also reports that Nia Sharma and Riya Sen too have been shortlisted along with controversial self-styled god woman Radhe Maa. But, the makers of the reality show have not confirmed the reports.

This year’s Bigg Boss will go on air from September and end in December as opposed to in the past, when the show spilled over into the new year.
