Stars Bani J, Rahul Dev, Gaurav Chopra, Lopamudra Raut, Karan Mehra, Mona Lisa and Rohan Mehra have made their way inside the house. According to reports, it took the makers of Bigg Boss several seasons to get Bani and Rahul on the show, who have been refusing the offer for many years. So why did they finally agree? Of course, money!
