Salman asked Rashami to clear the air on the rumours that she was dating Arbaaz Khan’s son Arhaan Khan. To which, she was that there was no truth in the rumours. She was allotted the ‘kitchen duty’ along with Siddharth Shukla.

Kashmiri model Asim was straightaway assigned the ‘living room duty’ with Koena. Dalljiet and her partner Siddharth have been assigned the ‘bedroom duty,’ while Shehnaaz and Paras were given ‘rationing duty’ and Shefali the ‘garden and pool duty.’

The makers of the Bigg Boss 13 have made several changes in its format and location. Unlike previous editions of the show, this year’s reality show will be shot in Goregaon and not Lonavla. The show will be on air every weekday night at 10.30 PM, while the eviction is scheduled for the weekend nights.

Salman on Sunday announced that the “First finale” will take place in a month.
