As another edition of popular TV reality show `Bigg Boss’ gets ready for telecast, the names of probable contestants have started doing the rounds and the list is dominated by small screen actors – from Mahi Vij, Ankit Gera to Roopal Tyagi. The ninth season of the show, hosted by superstar Salman Khan, will go on air from October 11 on Colors channel.
Besides Mahi, Ankit and Roopal, names of other TV actors like Rashmi Desai, Radhika Madan, Mayur Verma, Jay Bhanusali and Mohit Malhotra, besides film actress Sana Saeed are also being discussed as likely celebrity contestants.
When contacted by PTI, Ankit, from the show `Sapne Suhane Ladakpan Ke’, said “Every year I am approached and this year too (I was approached), but nothing (is) confirmed. Let’s see.” Roopal, a key character from the same TV show, said, “I can’t comment…I can’t talk about it at the moment.”
Mahi, of `Laagi Tujse Lagan’ serial, chose to play safe, saying, “I can’t say anything right now.” Sana, who played the role of young Anjali in 1998 Shah Rukh Khan-starrer blockbuster `Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, said, “They had approached me for the show but I have not taken it up as I have other commitments.”
According to sources, the channel is keen on having Sana for the show, which in the past editions has generated a lot of controversies. “I have not been approached for the show yet,” Radhika, who plays the role of Ishani in `Meri Aashiqui Tumse Hee’ said. Rashmi, of `Uttaran’ fame, said, “It’s a false news… (I have been) not approached yet.”
This time, the show will have a concept of “Double Trouble”, details of which are not out yet. Reportedly, ex-couples might be part of the programme. The official announcement of the contestants is yet to take place. An Indian version of international reality show “Bigg Brother”, the programme sees a number of celebrity contestants living in a house under constant surveillance of multiple cameras.
