Will there jodis in the Salman Khan-hosted Bigg Boss 12? Or, will there be not? There is suddenly too much confusion and I guess it will remain until Colors (show’s broadcaster) lifts the curtain officially sometime next week. Till then, we have heard that the jodis which were shortlisted for Bigg Boss 12 were asking for exorbitant fees and naturally, it wasn’t turning out to be a commercially viable proposition. So that has led to a change in the permutations and combinations in the final list, which may now have singles too.
Not an easy show to put and Bigg Boss needs hot controversies for the content to not fall flat. Moreover, with the success it tasted last year (Season 11) courtesy Shilpa Shinde, Hina Khan and Vikas Gupta in particular, we are sure that there is pressure to not let its graph dwindle. Anyway, so now, SpotboyE.com has learned thatDevoleena Bhattacharjee, Neha Pendse, and Riddhima Pandit are all set to enter as contestants. Yeah, the three glamorous girls will add a lot of glam quotient no doubt.
Interestingly, Saath Nibhana Saathiya star Devoleena was offered Bigg Boss 11. “I want to work with superstar Salman Khan. But I can’t do Bigg Boss right now. I was approached for the show. I respect the channel and the production house for considering me,” she had said then. Devoleena is one of the highest paid actresses in Indian television.
In January 2015, Devoleena got into a catfight with actress Loveleen Kaur Sasan who played the role of Paridhi in Saath Nibhaana Saathiya. She was said to be insecure with Loveleen’s entrance in the show who had replaced her good friend Rucha Hasabnis, whose character Rashi had died. In January 2016, media reports alleged that the sets of Saath Nibhaana Saathiya were haunted and Devoleena confirmed the same. In the same month, Devoleena landed in another controversy with Vishal Singh, an actor from the same show who played the role of Jigar. The actors had an infamous showdown over her misbehavior with senior actress Vandana Vithlani, who played Urmila. In October 2016, Devoleena accused actress Utkarsha Naik, who played the role of Pramila in the same show of kidnapping her dog Jugnu from the sets. She could not find her pet anywhere and eventually filed a complaint in PETA. Over to Neha.
Neha’s brief participation in Kapil Sharma’s show Family Time With Kapil Sharma made her a household name. Neha then took up pole dancing to stay fit. Seems, the training worked wonders for her. Some time ago, there were reports about how the makers of May I Come in Madam had forced the actress to get in shape if she wanted to remain a part of the show. And boy she did it! Over to Ridhima.
Ridhima grabbed headlines in December 2017 when she called off her 10-year relationship with Rajesh Roshan’s son and Hrithik Roshan’s cousin Ehsaan. The Bahu Hamari Rajni Kant was always elusive about why she broke up with Ehsaan, but one day said rather generically to a section of the media, “The more you look for love, the more it eludes you. So I have stopped focusing on it now. There should be some exclusivity in a relationship. I am not saying that the person should be available for me all the time, but his love life should be equally as important as other aspects.”
So that’s it! You can bet your last rupee that the temperatures are going to soar from mid-September when Colors rolls out the first episode with Devoleena, Neha, and Ridhima in the Salman Khan-hosted Bigg Boss 12. The three girls are fast packing their bags. After all, they want to stay inside for the longest time!
