Last night we caught the whiff of a rather interesting rumour. It all started with a popular Bigg Boss khabri page on social media posting about season 15’s extension and the possibility of two new wildcards entering the house. Now, while new wildcards do sound a tad too desperate at this point in the show, the names that were being circulated did get us quite excited. It was being suggested that Divya Agarwal (we know!) and Vishal Kotian would soon enter the Bigg Boss house. Soon enough, Vishal ended up adding fuel to all the anticipation and frenzy with an Instagram story that suggested that he’d, in fact, be back to the house. “Ek baar phirse goonjenga #BolBam,” it read amid rumours of him being quarantined. But, were any of these speculations actually true?
As it turns out, Divya and Vishal are actually entering the Bigg Boss house! But wait till you get too excited because there is a twist in this tale. The actors are not going to the house as wildcard contestants but rather as connections of those who are already there. If you remember, the exact same happened in Bigg Boss 14 where connections of the contestants were invited in the penultimate week of the show to support them. It is now also happening for Bigg Boss 15 and we have a list that tells who’d be entering for whom this season. Read on.
The ‘family week’ for Bigg Boss 15 sounds as gimmicky as the rest of the season with makers roping in celebs instead of real families of these contestants. Apart from Abhijit Bichukale whose wife would be entering the house, everyone else will have TV celebs supporting them this time around and we see a sly pattern here as well. For instance, Divya has been roped in to support Karan which is sure to get him a lot of votes given her massive fan following and the fact that she just won Bigg Boss OTT a couple of months ago. Similarly, Vishal is entering the house for Shamita and he too happens to be one of the most popular contestants this season and someone who is still fresh in the public memory. However, we are a little disappointed with the rest of the line-up with Kashmira Shah entering for Tejasswi Prakash, Kamya Punjabi for Pratik Sehajpal, Vishal Singh for Devoleena Bhattacharjee, Rahul Mahajan for Rakhi Sawant, and Debina Banarjee for Rashami Desai.
Surprisingly, nothing has been revealed about the connections who’d be supporting Umar and Nishant during the family week. This makes us wonder if they’d be shown the door in the upcoming Weekend Ka Vaar. As you might be aware, Umar’s future in the Bigg Boss house currently hangs in mid-air with creatives still debating on whether he should be evicted after his violent fight with Pratik. As for Nishant, we have been suspicious all this while that the multiple Tickets To Finale this season were a way of getting him out of Shamita’s way and looks like it might finally be happening.
That said, we can not deny that we are pretty excited about Divya and Vishal’s re-entry into the house and we finally have one interesting week in the Bigg Boss 15 to look forward to. Here’s to crappy reality TV and small wins!
