Bigg Boss is a television reality show broadcast on Colors channel in India. It follows the Big Brother format, which was first developed by Endemol in the Netherlands. Within a span of 9 years of telecast, Bigg Boss has rolled out 8 Seasons and one spin-off version thus establishing itself as one of the most popular Reality TV Series in India.
The show has, at times, proved to be a great ratings churner with the viewership at a constant high since the appointment of Salman Khan as the main presenter. Season 4, 5 and 7 have each topped the ratings charts for their respective tenures whereas Season 8 and Halla Bol have scored lowest figures for the channel to date.
‘Bigg Boss 9’, to be hosted by superstar Salman Khan, is an Indian version of internationally acclaimed reality format “Celebrity Big Brother”. The show involves celebrity contestants locked inside a purpose-built house for three months under constant camera surveillance.
Here Is List of Rumoured Contestants for Bigg Boss 9
Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh, the godman-turned-actor, has confirmed that he has been approached by the makers of reality show. However, he has put forth certain conditions to enter the show.
The Dera Saccha Sauda chief, who is coming back to the big screen with a sequel to the 2015 film MSG – the Messenger, was present at a music launch of his film MSG 2 – The Messenger, at an event here on Wednesday. The film is releasing on September 18.
Asked whether he had been approached to appear in Bigg Boss 9, he said: “Yes, I’ve been approached to appear on the show. But I asked them if they allow me to exit the house for 2-3 hours every day to meet my followers then I can think for it. Still nothing is finalised.”
2 Mandana Karimi
Mandana Karimi might get locked into the house: Iranian model Mandana Karimi might be one of the contestants of ‘Bigg Boss 9’ season. Mandana is a native of Tehran and has been living in India for some time to work as a model. She featured with Arjun Kapoor in Philips commercial. As most foreign models do, Mandana also signed for Hindi speaking classes to add more skills to her CV. Unlike other wannabe actresses, Mandana’s agenda will not be to get noticed by film makers to land a Bollywood film, because she already has two in her kitty – Kunal Kemmu starrer ‘Bhaag Johnny’ and ‘Kya Kool Hai Hum 3’ with Tusshar Kapoor. But, appearing in ‘Bigg Boss 9’ will definitely help Madana gain popularity which is an essential requirement in Bollywood.
We now hear that TV actor Mohit Malhotra has also being approached for the show.
Sources inform that the handsome and dashing actor, who was last seen in Jamai Raja has been offered the show. He is keen on accepting the offer.
When contacted, Mohit said, “Yes, I have been offered the show and I am still thinking over it. Nothing is finalised yet.”
Rumors were out that Godwoman Radhe Maa will be locked in the house, but Radhe Maa’s supporters have answered back. One of her supporters has slapped the channel with a legal notice. “We are suing them for maligning Radhe Maa’s name. She was never offered the show, has not signed and will not be a part of the show. She is not interested in TV,” said Sanjeev Gupta, supporter of Radhe Maa and MD of a marketing company. He further blamed that Colors is using her name for TRP’s.
Radhe Maa has refuted all rumours of her joining the show through a Facebook post.
Well the man in question is none other than the ex-Housing.com co-founder. Rahul first came into the limelight for his controversial remarks on Vishal Sikka (CEO of Infosys) and his brashness and arrogance. An IIT Bombay dropout, Rahul was fired from his job citing his behaviour towards investors, ecosystem and the media.
