While Jhalak Dikhhlaa Ja is drawing to a close and it’s sad for everyone, it means one brilliant thing – Bigg Boss season is going to start! Yup, Bigg Boss 9 is going to enter your lives and take over it. We’ve been getting requests from everywhere to get you guys details, so we did our snooping around and got you some super fun gossip.

Here’s the list of names that’s been doing the rounds:

1. Shweta Basu

Shweta Prasad Basu

The sweet little girl from Makdee, who found herself amidst a horrible ‘prostitution scandal’controversy last year might be on the show.

2. Sana Saeed

Sanaa Saeed

Last seen with (ex?) boyfriend Deepak in Nach Baliye 7, Sana Saeed (who we all loved as Shah Rukh Khan‘s daughter in Kuch Kuch Hota Hai) might be strutting her stuff in the Bigg Bosshouse.

3. Rashami Desai

Rashami Desai, Nandish Sandhu

Another half from Nach Baliye 7, Rashami Desai was in the news for her marital problems withNandish Sandhu. All has worked out well for the both of them now and buzz is that she’s been approached for the show. Since Bigg Boss also has a reputation of bringing in couples on the show, we wonder if Nandish will be roped in with her too.

4. Radhe Maa

Radhe Maa

Apparently, our fave Radhe Maa was approached for the show too but she sadly couldn’t do it because of her legal hearings that are scheduled. Personally, I would’ve loved her on the show because I feel like I need to know if her entire wardrobe is red and if she carries her trishul to the bathroom.

5. Asha Negi

Asha Negi

We would have loved to see Asha Negi on the show! But when we did ask her at our#MMHangout, she denied it completely. Change of heart?

6. Rahul Yadav

Rahul Yadav

The bad boy of the corporate world Rahul Yadav is one of the confirmed contestants. Remember his “resignation” from took the internet by storm.

7. VJ Bani

VJ Bani

I loved VJ Bani in Roadies season 1 and even though she’s toned down in all these years, Bani J in the house will be fresh.

What’s NOT happening:

Kashmera Shah

Rumours were doing the rounds that Bigg Boss 9 is actually going to be a Bigg Boss All Stars version, which meant the winners of all the previous seasons were going to on it. We’re told it’s not happening anymore, however, three contestants from previous seasons might be on the show.

Is Salman Khan hosting?

salman khan

Hell yeah!

However, like last year, he might have to leave a little before the season ends because of prior work commitments.

When is it starting?

Salman Khan

The promos are going to go on air on the 10th of September… so, SUPER SOON!
