No Radhe Maa or Mia Khalifa for us; these are the ten faces you can expect to see on the upcoming season of Bigg Boss.

Armaan is being touted everywhere as one of the Season 9 contestants. However, the actor recently made a post on his Facebook page denying the rumours.

Contrary to the rumours making the rounds, I am not a part of #BigBoss9. But good luck to all the contestants!

Whether the denial is serious or just him playing coy remains to be seen.

Most famous for his stint as Guthi on Comedy Nights with Kapil, will Grover play up to his comic relief image on Bigg Boss 9?

Mohit Malhotra

Will Bigg Boss 9 do one better than MTV’s Splitsvilla and make Mohit a household name?

Nakshatra Bagwe

Let’s hope that the presence of award-winning director and India’s first gay ambassador on season 9 of Bigg Boss advances the cause of the LGBTQ community.

Mayur Verma

Going by the fact that nobody seems to know Mayur Verma, Bigg Boss can only be a step up.

Arshi Khan

Arshi Khan was in the news recently for filing a complaint against Radhe Maa for running a sex racket. So Bigg Boss is naturally the next step.

Mahi Vij

Mahi Vij is known to TV audiences as the winner of Nach Baliye season 5 and thus stands a good chance of being a hit with the voting public.

Roopal Tyagi

Beloved of the Indian TV audience for her role in Zee’s Sapne Suhane Ladakpan Ke, Roopal Tyagi is another strong contender this season.

Ankit Gera

Ankit Gera is also famous for his role on Sapne Suhane Ladakpan Ke. The scoop is that he dated co-star Roopal Tyagi for a while but the couple has broken up now. Maybe that’s the reason behind their simultaneous casting in Bigg Boss 9?

Najeem Khan

We foresee a LOT of Judwaa jokes this season.
