Bigg Boss 10 is set to conquer television screens from 16 October, 2016. Apart from Salman Khan's presence, the show has been making headlines for the probable list of participants.
As against the conventional format wherein 15 celebrities are locked inside the Bigg Boss house, this time around, the contestants' list will be a blend of celebrities and non-celebrities.
Here's the list of contestants making the rounds:
Known for his performance on the television show, Swaragini, Mayur in an official statement confirmed his participation.
"I have been selected as a contestant for the upcoming season of Bigg Boss. Last year, I had been nominated as a wild card contestant. However as it was right after my break-up with Marina (Marina Kuwar), I refrained from sharing the same screen space. But this time, I am looking forward to being on the show."
Known for MTV Roadies, VJ Bani has been approached by Colors even in the past to be a part of this show. This time around, it seems the former model has finally agreed to come on board.
Rohan Mehra recently opted out of the much watched television show Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai to be a part of Bigg Boss 10.
Parth Samthaan is another TV actor who walked out of his daily show. Known for the character of Manik Malhotra in Kaisi Yeh Yaariaan, Parth is a major contender.
Rahul Raj Singh:
Singh has been in news because of the Pratyusha Banerjee suicide case. Being a controversial figure, it will be interesting to see his stance on the show.
Shah Rukh Khan's daughter Anjali from Kuch Kuch Hota Hai is set to make a small screen debut with the show. After repeated attempts to leave a mark in the film industry, the actress failed to get much recognition. Hopefully, this may work for her?
Nakshatra Bagwe is a Bollywood film-maker and is actively involved in protecting the rights of homosexuals in India.
Apart from the seven celebrities mentioned above, the non-celebrities short listed are Manoj Punjabi, Mandira Chauhan, Nitibha Kaul, Parmod Kumar, Lokesh Kumari, Firoz Khan, Nikhil Mehta, Manjo Kumar, Kajol Tyagi, Davinder Devgan, Navin Prakash, Ruchika Singh and Priyanka Jagga.
