FANS of re­al­ity TV show Bigg Boss 12 are set to see an in­crease in the num­ber of com­mon­ers in the show’s 12th sea­son, that kicks off to­day. In an in­ter­ac­tion with mid-day, host Sal­man Khan had stated that those who be­lieve they’ve nabbed the trick of mak­ing it to the top, are usu­ally the first to be dis­ap­pointed. “I have seen a lady who has achieved so much in life — even at­tained peace — break down and cry within two weeks [of stay­ing in the house]. No one can be pre­pared for this game. I still haven’t un­der­stood how it works,” Khan had said. The beach-themed edi­tion will see a spe­cial band — com­pris­ing Pranav Bharad­waj, Joy Bose, Gee­tan­jali More, Sil­man Marak, Brian Pereira and Chris Gav­van —be­ing roped in to com­pose its theme mu­sic.

While a bunch of com­mon­ers will be part of the show, here are the celebri­ties step­ping into the house this year: Apart from shows like Kasautii Zindagii Kay and Naa­gin 2, TV star Bohra has also been seen in films like Kismat Kon­nec­tion. Known for her act in Sa­sural Si­mar Ka, Dipika Kakkar tied the knot to co-star Shoaib Ibrahim last year. Talk­ing about en­ter­ing the house, she says, “I dread be­ing away from Shoaib for long.”

A cel­e­brated name in the South In­dian film in­dus­try, Pendse was ap­plauded for her TV show, May I Come In Madam.

Rode made her TV de­but in 2010 with Yeh Ishq Haaye. She went on to do shows like Pu­nar Vi­vah 2.

The former crick­eter was ear­lier seen in dance re­al­ity show Jha­lak Dikhhla Jaa. The man is known for los­ing his tem­per eas­ily, mak­ing him an ideal pick for this con­tro­ver­sial show. The only se­nior cit­i­zen in the house, singer and com­poser Anup Jalota, 65, will en­ter­tain view­ers with his mu­sic, we hope.

Matharu started learn­ing clas­si­cal and West­ern mu­sic at the age of 11. She has per­formed with Mika Singh’s troupe for over three years.
