Contestant names confirmed for Big Boss this season


The Big Boss season is back with all its drama and buzz. Anyone who follows the show eagerly awaits the announcement of the new contestants of the house.

The contestants this year, will have to work really hard in what seems like a gripping upcoming season, as reported by The new show rules will come with a trade and barter sort of setup, which even includes, yes you heard that right, the bathroom. Plus, there is an underground jail and tasks like secret dating for the contestants as well.

It seems the tough conditions are scaring the new contestants even before they enter the house this season. But the website reported that the list of confirmed contestants of the Bigg Boss house this season are Hina Khan (Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai), Shilpa Shinde (Bhabhiji Ghar Par Hai), Vikas Gupta (Screenwriter), Priyank Sharma (MTV Splitsvilla) and Dhinchak Pooja (musical artist) will be the first celebs who will enter the house. The contestants will be leaving tomorrow evening for Lonavala and will start the shoot from Saturday evening.

Hindustan Times reported that the son-in-law of Dwood Ibrahim’s sister, Haseena Parkar, Zubair Khan too is confirmed for the show. According to the paper, Haryanvi singer Sapna Chaudhary too is reportedly going in. Others include tantrik Shivani Durga and commoner and DU student, Jyoti Kumari.


While Abrar Zahoor (Movie Neerja Fame) is also going inside, there is some doubt about the entry of Pearl V Puri (model turned actor). Every year, they want a TV bahu and this time the channel Colors was really keen on having Hina Khan for the show.

As per sources, Hina will last for a long time inside the house. The lady has time to start work on Rashmi Sharma’s show and Bigg Boss 11 is a good in-between opportunity. Dhinchak Pooja is also a celeb contestant on the show. Shantanu Maheshwari was also approached for the show, but he wasn’t keen on it.

If the news that she is charging Rs 4 lakh per day, it seems Shilpa Shinde may not last too long in the house. The TV producer Vikas Gupta, also gave his nod on the last minute. The MTV Splitsvilla X and new teen icon, handsome and charming Priyank Sharma also seems like the favourite ladies man addition to the show. And with the internet sensation whom everyone loves to hate, Dhinchak Pooja also included, this promises to be a fun affair.

The show will be aired on Colours TV from October 1. Salman Khan’s big paychecks are also a discussion point each year before the show begins. The buzz about him charging Rs 11 crore per episode this year, made Khan laugh it off with some funny antics on stage. He also mentioned that if he was on the show, in two days he would land up in jail.
