Salman Khan launched Bigg Boss 12 today (September 4, 2018) in Goa. The countdown to the reality show has already begun. This season seems to be interesting, as 21 contestants will be entering the show. The theme of the show is 'vichitra jodis' and the contestants will be entering the house in pairs. Also, a few contestants will enter the show individually, who will be paired inside the house. Last season, the show was a hit, thanks to the controversial contestants. Hence, this season, the makers are trying to rope in popular names in the industry.
There were reports that mother-son duo, actress Vibha Chibbar and her son - actor Puru - will be entering the house. But when TOI contacted the actress to confirm the same, she revealed that she has not been approached by the channel yet, and as of now, they are not entering the show.
Vibha Chibber was quoted by TOI as saying, "I don't know from where did this rumour start. I was surprised when my friends told me that such rumours are making the rounds. I told them that neither me nor did Puru is going to enter the house as of now."
When asked whether she is interested in participating in the reality show, she said, "Yes, we can consider but as the show is going to start in 15 days I doubt, I'll be able to make my dates available for the show."
Other two names that are doing the rounds are Tina Dutta and Sreesanth. Tina was seen on Colors show, Uttaran, while Sreesanth was a part of the latest season of the stunt-based reality show, Khatron Ke Khiladi.
Apart from the above-mentioned names, Dipika Kakar, Shristy Rode, Debina Bonnerjee, Neha Pendse and Ridhima Pandit are some of the speculated participant names.
The reality show is all set to premiere on September 16, 2018. The show will be aired on Colors TV from Monday to Friday at 10.30 PM & on Saturday and Sunday at 9 PM.
