Bigg Boss 11 contestants list: It’s the big day for the Bigg Boss fans. The 11th season of Bigg Boss will be aired tonight on Colors TV at 9 pm. Last night, the channel posted a video on its Twitter handle where Salman Khan was seen introducing TV actress Shilpa Shinde as a participant on the show. On Sunday, few more videos were posted where the channel gave an inside tour of the house. Ever since Colors TV announced the new season of Bigg Boss, there has been a constant buzz about this year’s participants. Rumours have come in from all parts of the television industry. While some of these rumours were dismissed by the celebrities, others might be true. The new season which will be hosted by Salman Khan, will once again see a mix of celebrities and commoners joining forces.
While the makers of the show maintain high levels of secrecy about the contestants, the latest media report suggests that four new names have been confirmed. According to a report by The Indian Express, Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai’s Hina Khan, popular television and web series producer Vikas Gupta, Splitsvilla fame teen icon Priyank Sharma, Balika Vadhu actor Hiten Tejwani, Bhabiji Ghar Par Hain controversial star Shilpa Shinde and VJ Benafsha Soonawala have been added to the Bigg Boss 11 contestants list.

A source close to the show was quoted saying in the report, Since the makers have also got some really interesting commoners, they wanted a healthy mix of celebs who could add the required drama quotient. While Priyank and Benafsha could stir up a young romance, Shilpa and Vikas’ controversial past will definitely come to the forefront. Hina, who is known for her high-handed attitude, will be easily complemented by the sweet and simple Hiten. While Dhinchak Pooja is entertainment in herself. We are really confident that it’s going to be a really exciting season ahead.”
