Bigg Boss is back with its latest season and I, for one, am pretty excited about it. However, the previous editions have shown us that a season is just as good as its contestants.
Keeping that in mind, let's have a look at celebrities who will most probably be a part of the show this time, as reported by India Today.
1. Dipika Kakar Ibrahim
Simar from Sasural Simar Ka is expected to be a part of the show this time. She played the very popular role for almost 4 years and was later a part of reality dance shows like Jhalak Dikhhla Ja and Nach Baliye. She made her Bollywood debut with JP Dutta's Paltan this year.
2. Neha Pendse
Neha is a part of the show May I Come In Madam? and recently acted as a co-host in the popular comedy show Family Time With Kapil Sharma. She is also known for acting in Marathi TV show Bhagyalakshmi and movies like Tum Se Achcha Kaun Hai, Devdas and Dil Toh Baccha Hai Ji, among others.
3. Karanvir Bohra
An extremely loved actor among the masses, Karanvir has been a part of the television industry for more than a decade and has made his mark with shows like Shararat, Kasauti Zindagi Kay, Qubool Hai, Saubhagyawati Bhav and Naagin 2.
4. Srishty Rode
Srishty has been a part of shows like Shobha Somnath Ki, Ye Ishq Haaye and Punarvivaah and this is the first time she is doing a reality show.
5. Anup Jalota
One of the most popular bhajan singers in India, Anup Jalota will be entering the house with his student Jasleen Matharu (who has also worked with Mika Singh) and it will be interesting to see their dynamics on the show.
6. S Sreesanth
Previously an important part of the Indian cricket team, pacer Sreesanth was accused of fixing and that almost ended things for him as a cricketer. He is a good dancer and has participated in dance reality shows before.
According to the new format, there will also be 6 pairs in this season, called vichitra jodis.
Here they are:
7. Romil Chaudhary and Nirmal Singh
While Romil is an advocate and a lawyer, Nirmal is a policeman. The two friends are from Haryana and have claimed they will give a tough time to other contestants on the show.
8. Saba Khan and Somi Khan
The two sisters from Jaipur will enter the house together and it will be interesting to see if each other's support will be enough for them to survive in the house.
9. Shivashish Mishra and Sourabh Patel
This farmer-businessman jodi from Madhya Pradesh is all set to break the stereotypes and entertain the viewers.
10. Deepak Thakur and Urvashi Vani
Deepak is a popular Bhojpuri singer and Urvashi claims to be his biggest fan, who reportedly once ran from her house to meet him. The duo will enter the house as a celebrity-fan jodi.
11. Roshmi Banik and Mital Joshi
While Roshmi runs an event management company, Mital is a make-up artist from Kolkata.
12. Surbhi Rana and Kriti Verma
The ex-Roadies contestants have entered the house together and will put their reality TV experience, to use here.
The two are already in the newly introduced 'outhouse', along with Roshmi and Mital, and only one out of two jodis will enter the house based on public votes.
