Big Boss Saath-Saath 7 Contestants

Thursday, September 19, 2013 12 Comments

Reality Show Big Boss 7 has gone even bigger than before. Better or no, yet to say. The concept of "Heaven and Hell" is indeed novel and attracts eye-balls. Speculations aside, a long list of season's wannabe housemates went afloat on the web ranging names from Harbhajan Singh to Shekhar Suman, Poonam Pandey and Vatsal Seth. Gone Sunday and the show got it's current season' housemates. Here's a dekko at them-


1) Tanisha Mukherji: Film Star Kajol's younger sister who after trying her hands in Bollywood in forgetful flicks like Neil and Nikki makes her controversial debut in television. It would be nice to see her real life antics in the reality show. Yes, she looks a lot like my yesteryear's favorite Tanuja, at times and it would be interesting to see whether she can up her ante in this stint or emerge as other damp squib.

2) VJ Andy: The Dare 2 Date host and also a part of lots of plays enters big boss season 7 with big bang. Funny, sarcastic or over hyped, or a replacement of last season's Imam Siddiqui? It is for time to tell. One thing is sure, he makes an interesting contestant to watch for and there will be lot of air kissing in the house.

3) Gauhar Khan: The fiery, sexy, blunt khan sister, riding high on success of her KOD India's answer to Broadway show Zangoora (where she plays Lakshi beautifully) and a feisty stint in 2012' Ishqzaade, comes as one of the key catch of contestant in this season. Gauhar seems to be screen space crazy and gets her foot in everything in the house. let's see if she survives or fizzle out.

4) Ratan Rajput: She made her debut in NDTV Imagine' Radha Ki Betiya" and hit the primetime TRPs with popular serial "Agle Janam Mohe Bitiya hi kijo". Ratan Rajput AKA Lali went further in her tryst in one of the television's most fake franchisee- Ratan ka Rishta wherein in she declared to get married on television. Whatever happened to her Rishta is a mystery. Her first appearance in the show where she shared the screen space with Salman and subsequently enters the house is best termed as loud and too much attention seeking. Let's see if it's only her popularity or actual substance that makes her sail

5) Pratyusha Bannerji: Another TV merchandise from long running Balika Badhu, Pratyusha aka Anandi makes her third attempt at prime-time after not so successfully trying her hands in Jhalak Dikhla ja on colors. Her sudden oust from the popular serial raise few eye balls. Fresh from a heart break and known for throwing tantrums on the sets, lets see if this Jamshedpur belle wins heart like her TV character Anandi or just fizzle.

6) Arman Kohli: Ah! son of the film producer Rajkumar Kohli returns to screen after a long long time and interestingly no one feels having missed him. Stern face, oozing attitude and possibility to join the leagues of Dolly Bindra and Sambhavana Seth, lets see how he fares in this second innings.

Apoorva Agnihotri and Shilpa Saklani: The husband and wife duo fresh from their rave party controversy, returns to small screen via Big Boss season 7. Apoorva is the charming debutante from Subhash Ghai's Pardesh and Shilpa, once upon a time a popular TV actress having starred in high TRP shows of Ekta Kapoor like KKusum and "Kyunki Saas bhi kabhi bahu thi" makes another couple appearance after Pati, Patni aur woh. Here's more on them-


7) Apoorva Agnihotri: Also played main lead in "Jassi Jaisi koi nahi".

8) Shilpa Shaklani: Calm and mature on surface, sharp inside, definitely a good contestant to watch. Let's see if she becomes the winner this season or not.

9) Rajat Rawail: Producer Rahul Rawail's son and better known as Tsunami from Salman bhai Khan's hit factory- Bodyguard makes small screen debut. He was alleged to be specially picked by the actor himself. Expecting to bring more comic relief to the show, Rajat comes across as jolly person. Yes, the legendary time will tell how funny he will be or how long can he sustain the drama reality show. As of now he looks like a lamb placed in BB 7 slaughter house.

10) Kamya Punjabi: Television's favorite vamp yet a good looking actress, Kamya enters the show making her co contestants run for strategy fearing her devilish moves. The petite looking, "I don't mince my words" actress rose to popularity with her Zee' soap Dulhan Banoo Mein teri and was last seen in Maryada.

11) Hazel Keech: Nothing great to write about this yet another debutante from Salman Bhai Khan's hit movie- Bodyguard who stole him from Kareena Kapoor in the movie.. Big boss' this season's firang inmate as expected knows a little about Hindi language and given her simplistic way it is difficult to say whether she can survive this show for more that 5 weeks or not.
Originally placed in: Hell
Chances to Heaven: High (if she stays)


12) Eli Avaram: Second Firang contestant for this season. Another "I don't know much Hindi" inmate. She will be soon making her debut in upcoming movie" Mickey Virus" with TV's popular host Manish Paul. Yes, allegedly another friend of Mr. Goodheart Khan. Chances of survival are very low unless she hits controversy a la Veena Malik style, difficult to see her surviving in the house for more than 3 weeks.

13) Sangram Singh: AKA Sanjeet Kumar, he is a proud Indian wrestler and alleged good friend of Payal Rohtagi, BB season 2' contestants. Strong yet easy going dude makes another decent contestant of this otherwise boring list.

Chances to Hell: low



14) Anita Advani: Big Boss 7' controversial entrant, Anita Advani made headlines as Rajesh Khanna' unofficial live in partner. Her presence in the show is very obvious and it is little unlikely that she will be fizzled out soon unless she stops talking about Mr Khanna and weave few more headlines. Nevertheless, even if she makes an early exit, she would definitely be hogged by many a publishing houses for you know what.

15) Kushal Tandon: Television's poster boy who made his debut in rival Star Plus' primetime soap- Ek Hazaro mein Meri Behna hai. He was also seen in Nach Baliye last season. He claims to be a borderline alcoholic and have joined this serial to overcome the bad habit but off course other than gaining more popularity and off course fat money!

And that's how cookie crumbles! Lets see if the list of above contestant could make this season watch worthy or fizzle out. My verdict is- Not a very great contestant list. May be wild card entries could do better. My top picks from this season are- VJ Andy, Tanissha, Sangram Singh, Gauhar Khan, Shilpa Saklani and Kamya Punjabi. What do you think that who will create top TRPs for the channel this season? Do post your comments below.

Stay hooked to this space for more! Ciao

    1. Hmmm..yup never know who thinks what and how. The fun part of big boss is people' real reaction to situations. Meddling with it in name of pre-scripted role would be sad and uninteresting!

  2. I watched BB 7 a couple of times but was quite clueless about some contestants since I had missed the first episode and their intro...this bio helps esp to a person like me who's not into daily soaps and so wouldn't recognize some of the TV actors otherwise :-)
