Bigg Boss 8

This time the famous big glass house has been transformed into a stranded aircraft!

The grand premiere of Bigg Boss 8 was spectacular and full of excitement.

This time with the same host Salman Khan as the flight captain, India’s biggest reality show has taken off for a ride of controversies and entertainment.

What is different and exciting this time round is that the famous big glass house has been transformed into a stranded aircraft!

All the celebrity contestants known as ‘yatris’ (travellers) have strapped their belts on to take off for an adventurous flight.

There is a bigger shocker in 2014’s Bigg Boss. A secret society, which will act as middlemen and trouble makers, has been introduced in the show to keep an eye on the contestants and report to Bigg Boss.

After 9 months wait and speculation, finally the contestants have been revealed. DESIblitz gives you all the juicy details on who to watch out for:

  • Sonali Raut

BB8Sonali, a Kingfisher model, made her acting debut this year in the Bollywood film The Xpose opposite Himesh.

Though she failed to create an impression with her debut film, she is hoping that Bigg Boss would help her reintroduce herself to the glamour world.

  • Karishma Tanna

BB8This hot TV actress was a part of Ekta Kapoor’s superhit show Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi and was recently visible in the superhit film, Grand Masti.

She has been a part of the small screen for a long time now and is perhaps in the house to restore her career.

  • Upen Patel

BB8Londoner and local bloke, Upen Patel has been seen in various Bollywood films, including Namastey London and 36 China Town.

He sure is going to be a naughty charmer perhaps breaking a few hearts inside the house. The actor too seems to be in the house to give his career a second chance.

  • Arya Babbar

BB8The Tees Maar Khan actor who entered the Bigg Boss house is expected to replace the hot tempered Armaan Kohli from the last season.

Actor Raj Babbar’s son, Arya was supposedly signed up on Salman Khan’s will. If that’s the case, then he may be saved from Salman’s thrashing every weekend.

  • Soni Singh

BB8 Soni Singh was previously seen playing the role of a vamp in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s well known television series Saraswatichandra.

The TV actress is perhaps the replacement to Bigg Boss 6, winner Urvashi Dholakia. Only time will tell if she is a vamp in real life too or as innocent as her smile.

  • Diandra Soares

BB8Diandra is a supermodel who shocked the fashion world by walking the ramp bald.

She has already grabbed eye balls with her funky hair colour and doesn’t seem like a misfit in the Bigg Boss house at all.

The attention seeking Diandra is being compared to last year’s contestant Sofia Hayat.

  • Sushant Divgikar

BB8This year, to fill in the shoes of celebs like Imam A Siddique and Bobby Darling, Mr Gay India 2014, Sushant Divgikar has joined the house to symbolise the LGBT community in the show.

He did seem to strike a good impression on Sallu Bhai, by his dance moves and smooth voice but how much he would be liked in the house, only time will tell.

  • Gautam Gulati

BB8This good looking dude, featured in popular TV serial Diya Aur Baati Hum in a small role and suddenly disappeared from the show.

His entry in Bigg Boss explains his disappearing stunt. With such good looks, hopefully we can see more romance inside the house.

  • Sukirti Kandpal

BB8Famously known as Dr. Anjali from the hit TV series Dil Mil Gaye, Sukirti was last seen on TV show Kaisa Yeh Ishq Hai Ajab Sa Risk Hai.

Doesn’t she fit into Pratyusha Banerjee’s role from last year’s season?

  • Praneet Bhatt

bb8He played the evil ‘Shakuni Mama’ character in the super hit TV series Mahabharat, however in real life seems far from being evil.

Salman loved his positive vibe and he surely seems like the life of the house (till things get ugly).

  • Natasha Stankovic

BB8She is a Serbian model, who was seen in the ‘Do-The-Rex’ condom ad and also in an item number in Satyagraha.

She has entered the Bigg Boss house to improve her Hindi and make an impact like last year’s contestant Elli Avram did!

If so, then except for her hot body, her expressionless face and her drunken voice are not working for her.

  • Minissha Lamba

BB8 In case you didn’t recongnise Minissha at first, it’s not your fault. This Minissha, who was the Bollywood actress known for her roles in Kidnap, Bachna Ae Haseeno looks very different.

Speculations are that she went through cosmetic surgeries that went horribly wrong! Anyway Minissha is looking for a fresh start and we wish her luck.

If you are a Bigg Boss addict, these contestants are going to be a part of your life for the next few months. Just sit back, grab your popcorn and enjoy!

Komal is a cinéaste, who believes she was born to love films. Apart from working as assistant Director in Bollywood, she finds herself doing photography or watching Simpsons. “All I have in life is my imagination and I love it that way!”
