Even as "Bigg Boss 10," hosted by Salman Khan, is gearing up to hit the screens, speculations regarding the list of contestants and the theme of the season have started doing the rounds.
While the 10th edition will see a major change in the show's format, in which common people will participate along with celebrities, some reports also say that this time, only commoners would be competing against each other to win the coveted trophy.
Now the latest buzz is that controversial self-styled godwoman Radhe Maa has been approached to take part on the show as a celebrity contestant. Radhe Maa, who has a huge base of followers, courted controversy when photos of her in a mini skirt went viral on internet last year.
No confirmation, however, has been made by the show-makers regarding her participation.
This is not the first time Radhe Maa's name has surfaced as a probable participant on "Bigg Boss." Last year, when rumours of her appearing on the show had made headlines, she refuted the report through a statement on her Facebook account. Enraged with the news of her name being associated with the TV show, some of her supporters had also slapped the producers of the show and the channel with a legal notice for maligning Radhe Maa's name.
Another probable contestant of "Bigg Boss 10" is Rahul Raj Singh. Rahul, better known as late television actress Pratyusha Banerjee's boyfriend, was the prime suspect in her suicide case.
Other possible celebrity contestants are Bollywood actor Shiny Ahuja, who was convicted of raping his maid; the "Kuch Kuch Hota Hai" child actress Sana Saeed aka Anjali; and gay rights activist Nakshatra Bagwe.
Ranbir Kapoor's cousin Armaan Jain, whose Bollywood debut "Lekar Hum Deewana Dil" failed at the box office, Sunil Grover aka Dr.Mashoor Gulati of "The Kapil Sharma Show," and singer and host Raj Mahajan are also said to have been approached for the show.
Meanwhile, the promo of "Bigg Boss 10" featured Salman as an astronaut, who talked about common men and women participating in the show. He also promised that viewers would be treated with heavy doses of drama, controversy, love and friendship. Going by the promo, it appeared that the show would be based on a spacecraft-centric theme.
