The makers of Bigg Boss 17 are in a hurry to finalize all the names of the singles/doubles contestants and mentors. The final list for Salman Khan’s show may be ready by this weekend.
Bigg Boss 17 is a reality show that everyone is waiting for. This time Salman Khan is coming in a different avatar because of his bald look. The makers of Bigg Boss 17 have planned a new theme for the show.
As we know, the house will be divided into singles and doubles. They are also going to bring in counsellors for couples. Many fans are upset with this as it ruins the original flavour of the show. But for Salman Khan’s show, the makers have approached TV celebs left and right.
The names of the final contestants may be finalized by the coming weekend. A source tells us, “The makers have held several meetings this week. They should have their final list by Sunday. Of course, one or two names will come later.” The source told us that Celeste Bairagi of the show Rajjo is one of the confirmed names. The actress went viral on social media when she recreated Alia Bhatt’s white saree look from Gangubai Kathiawadi.
The names being discussed are Soundas Moufakir, Kanika Mann, Nyra Banerjee and Jiya Manek. Shailesh Lodha and Monica Bhadoria have been approached by Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah. Among the pairs, Ankita Lokhande-Vicky Jain, Kanwar Dhillon-Alice Kaushik and Neil Bhatt-Aishwarya Sharma are said to be finalists. They are also going to meet some people from the digital content creator community.
Harsh Beniwal’s arrival in the show is considered certain. Bigg Boss 17 will start after 20th October 2023. The makers want to avoid a clash with the league stage of the ICC World Cup 2023 where most of the matches start at 2 pm.
Along with shooting the Vishnuvardhan film, Salman Khan will also work on the show. The project is financed by Dharma Productions. Salman Khan is playing the role of a paramilitary officer. His fans are very excited about this film. The superstar said that he is in great physical condition and is ready to do such action-oriented films.
