The day that many reality show addicts have been waiting for with long anticipation has finally arrived. Today is the day that Big Boss 3 begins and the contestants enter the house that will become their home for the next three months – watched nearly every moment of the day by 35 cameras.
We won’t know exactly who the contestants are until the final moments but it looks clear now that amongst the contestants will Shilpa’s little sister and creative consultant, Shamita Shetty, pop diva and sometime actress Sherlyn Chopra (Red Swastik, Raqeeb, Dil Bole Hadippa), former actress Poonam Dhillon (of Noorie and Naam fame), Kamal Khan, Bindu, Kangana’s ex – Aditya Chopra, possibly wannabe Claudia Ciesla, and interestingly, Punit Issar – the guy who mis-timed a punch on Coolie and nearly killed Amitabh Bachchan.
Amitabh, who will be acting as pop philosopher on the show on Fridays and Saturdays, will no doubt be taking a particularly interest in Punit. Rumours also suggest that comedian Navjot Singh Siddhu and silver age star Rajesh Khanna (Kaka) may also appear in the show. “Siddhu&’s name has been popped out to become one of the contestants of Bigg Boss 3,” said a source, “His humour may keep everyone entertained and happy. While Kaka is also tipped to be in the Bigg Boss interacting with Big B and the inmates.”
Other possibilities include TV actress Narayani Shastri, Tannaz and Bakhtiyar from Ajeeb – The Other Side and Loins of Punjab’s Loveleen Mishra.
The show is broadcast on Colours TV.
