One of India’s biggest TV reality shows, Bigg Boss 7 is finally on air, kicking off on Sunday night. Hosted by the blockbuster Khan Salman, the Bigg Boss house sees an interesting bunch of inmates, fighting for survival in stifling surroundings. Salman Khan returns as the host for the fourth time this year, and will see him in a double role – angel and devil.
Consisting of 15 contestants, they will be locked inside the house for 104 days, and will be a part of either ‘Jannat ka wow’ or ‘Jahanum ka aow’. The show will see some controversial and some not-so-controversial characters.
We introduce you the 15 contestants.
Pratyusha aka Anandi shot to fame with the hit daily soap Balika Vadhu, is one controversial actress who recently filed an FIR against her on-off boyfriend Makrand Malhotra. With her making it to the Bigg Boss house this year, we are guessing she might just spill some beans on her sudden exit from Balika Vadhu.
She made news when she claimed that she was in a live-in relationship with late superstar Rajesh Khanna after his death. Apparently, she also sent a legal notice to his family members asking for a legal share in his property. She is definitely one to watch out for, this season.
The very glamorous Gauhar Khan made waves with her super sexy moves in the song Jhalla Walla from the movie Ishaqzaade. She will definitely add loads of glamour to the house too.
She was the one who stole away Kareena Kapoor’s lover Salman Khan, in the movie Bodyguard. She also scorched the silver screen in the hit item number ‘Aa ante amlapuram’ from ‘Maximum’. She is also rumored to be Sallu’s favorite. Lets see what happens in the Bigg Boss house.
She is famous for her greyish and and negative roles, on screen. Only time will tell us if she turns into a vamp in the house too. Apparently, Kamya has been facing some problems in her married life for quite sometime now.
A wrestler by profession and popular as Payal Rohatgi`s live in boyfriend is no baby to reality shows. We have already got a taste of him in shows like Bigg Toss, Survivor India, and Sach Ka Saamna. The jhatt’s lingo is sure to bring some laughter in the house.
He is the son of producer-director Raj Kumar Kohli, who has starred in a few forgettable films. After an unsuccessful run in Bollywood, the actor is all set to begin his second innings with BB7.
Apoorva Agnihotri and Shilpa Agnihotri
They were Televisions most loved couple, once upon a time. The now married couple may have disappeared from the TV screens, but are sure in the limelight for their rave partying habits. The duo are back to sizzle on screen, yet again.
He is a complete surprise to us. The happy-and-gay boy, Vj Andy, who doesn’t know him. He was last was last seen on Life OK’s cookery reality show Welcome – Baazi Mehmaan Nawaazi Ki, and is said to have been brought into the show to create some drama.
He is Salman Khan’s hand picked khazana for this show. He was the laughing stock in the movie Bodyguard. Will he be the same in the Bigg Boss house too?
Popularly known as Kajol ‘s younger sister, Tanisha did not see success in Bollywood, like her sister did. Buzz is that her entire family, including mother Tanuja, sister Kajol and brother-in-law Ajay Devgn are said to be upset with her decision to enter the show.
After his hit soap Ek Hazaaron Mein Meri Behna Hai, Kushal finally takes a big break by entering into the Bigg Boss house. The dude is said to have recently split with long time girlfriend Elena Boev, and we are guessing he might have quite a few romantic moments in the house.
Just like Sangram Singh, the popular actress Ratan, who shot to fame with her daily soap Agle Janam Mohe Bitiya Hi Kijo is no stranger to the reality shows as we’ve seen her before on Imagine TV’s Swayamvar Season 3.
Another Salman Khan friend, Elie, born and brought up in Sweden, is an International troupe dancer. She is all set to make her debut in Bollywood film Mickey Virus, opposite Manish Paul.
