Although there is no official confirmation as of now, celebrities like Nia Sharma, Pavitra Punia, Akanksha Puri, Nishant Malkani and Naina Singh can be expected in the house of Big Boss Season 14.
The fourteenth season of the Salman Khan-hosted controversial reality show will premiere on Colors on October 3. Sources report that the makers are still finalising the contestants for the season. While work on the set is almost completed, the makers decided to push the season from September so that they can get the best inmates.
Unlike every year where the show generally launches on a Sunday, this year will experience its commencement on Saturday given that there is no other weekend series on air.
“Last season managed to break many records, and the pressure is there to keep the same quality when it comes to faces. While a few celebs have been confirmed, talks are on in different stages with a few others. There is already a big buzz around the show, and the makers have promised to make it an exciting affair,” added the source.
In the wait of an official confirmation, celebrities like Nia Sharma, Pavitra Punia, Akanksha Puri, Nishant Malkani and Naina Singh are said to be entering the house this season. Other names in the list include Aly Goni, Jasmin Bhasin, Tina Datta, Avinash Mukherjee, Shagun Pandey and Adhyayan Suman.
The season will again experience a mix of celebrities and semi-known faces.
Considering the ongoing pandemic situation, preventive measures are being taken. After signing of the contracts, the contestants would have to go into quarantine for a while before entering the show. While the show always has a ‘lockdown’ theme, this season it will extensively play around the current situation.
A few teasers were released by Colors last month featuring host Salman Khan. In the first video, the Bollywood superstar was seen working on a field. He said that while the lockdown acted as a speed breaker in everyone’s lives, ‘par ab scene paltega’ (the scene will change now).
The second teaser had Salman sitting in an empty cinema hall saying, “Manoranjan pe 2020 ne uthaya prashan, denge utar, manate hue jashan. Ab scene paltega, Kyunki Bigg Boss denge 2020 ko jawab.” The show is expected to be a blockbuster.
