Attention all Bigg Boss fans. With the eleventh season all set to premiere on October 1, there is a constant buzz in the industry with hushed whispers all around speculating the names of participants. The Salman Khan hosted series will once again see a mix of celebrities and commoners joining forces for a fun entertaining season. As per the neighbourhood theme, there will be two houses and contestants will be divided into two lots. As part of their first-week task, the participants will have to keep an eye on each other and juice out maximum gossip.
Now coming to the confirmed list, sources told indianexpress.com that among the list of names out in media, Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai’s Hina Khan, popular television and web series producer Vikas Gupta, Splitsvilla fame teen icon Priyank Sharma, Balika Vadhu actor Hiten Tejwani, Bhabiji Ghar Par Hain controversial star Shilpa Shinde and VJ Benafsha Soonawala have been confirmed as the celebrity contestants. Also, Dhinchak Pooja has been confirmed by the makers and she will in most probability sign the dotted lines in a day.
Shared a source with us, “Since the makers have also got some really interesting commoners, they wanted a healthy mix of celebs who could add the required drama quotient. While Priyank and Benafsha could stir up a young romance, Shilpa and Vikas’ controversial past will definitely come to the forefront. Hina, who is known for her high-handed attitude, will be easily complemented by the sweet and simple Hiten. While Dhinchak Pooja is entertainment in herself. We are really confident that it’s going to be a really exciting season ahead.”
Coming to the commoners, the channel has already released four names of commoners, who will be seen in the show. From self-proclaimed God-woman Shivani Durgah and daughter of a clerk Jyoti Kumari, to item dancer Sapna Choudhary and underworld kingpin Haseena Parkar’s son-in-law Zubair Khan will be seen in the show.
This season, for the first time Salman Khan will not only be the host but also a peacemaker between the gharwale and padosis. Talking about the same, Manisha Sharma, Programming Head of Colors said in a statement, “You will see Salman Khan in a new avatar in terms of a host. For the first time ever, Salman will move around in the Bigg Boss neighbourhood and will be staying alongside the contestants.”
