Controversial reality show ‘Bigg Boss’ is gearing up for its 11th season which will once again have commoners and celebrities as contestants. The reality series, which has Padosis as theme this year, is planning to have an interesting mix of contestants.
After Shilpa Shinde, we now hear that the makers have signed on Hina Khan, who became popular as Akshara in ‘Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai‘ and is currently seen on ‘Khatron Ke Khiladi’ has been finalized for ‘Bigg Boss 11’.
Interestingly, the last season of ‘Bigg Boss’ witnessed her onscreen husband Karan Mehra and son Rohan Mehra as participants, and their participation had triggered rumours that Hina too will enter the show. However, she appeared only as a guest to extend support to Rohan.
According to source of TOI, Hina has been offered a whopping amount to be a part for the reality series and apparently she has given her nod to be a part of the show this year.
In a previous interview to BT, the quintessential TV bahu had told us that she is averse to participating in Bigg Boss. She had said, “It isn’t my cup of tea. I don’t have the patience required to survive on that show. It’s really taxing and on top of that, people start commenting on your personal life, parents and upbringing. I am not cut out for it.” Well, we wonder what made her change her mind now.
When contacted, Hina denied the news and said, “This news is false, I don’t know from where is this coming from? I get approached for the show every year, but I’ve always turn down the offer. This time too I’ve no such plans. Going ahead if I am offered, I will deny it again.”
Meanwhile, the list of speculated contestants is getting longer day by day. We hear that Priyank Sharma, who is currently seen in the ongoing season of ‘Splitsvilla’, will also participate in ‘Bigg Boss’. Prince Narula, the product of a previous season of ‘Splitsvilla’, had emerged as the winner of the ninth season of ‘Bigg Boss’.
The show will premiere on Colors TV on October 1.
