Speculation is rife about the ever-elusive list of contestants who will take part in Bigg Boss 6

As the opening episode of Bigg Boss 6 draws nearer, the buzz about who will take part in the reality show becomes stronger

We already gave you our best guesses, most thought about and some confirmed information about who the contestants going into the Bigg Boss house under the widespread wings of host Salman Khan could be. But now more names have emerged as possibles. And as before, these have some amount of controversy attached to them. Among the new people that could be a part of the show are Aseem Trivedi, the controversial cartoonist who was jailed for sedition charges with his making political cartoons. He could use the stage as another rallying point to further his agenda against corruption.

Actor Mahesh Manjrekar is also one of the names that could be part of the show, but we don’t know if he would have enough time, as he has three films in hand in which he plays small roles. There are also the Sinha twins, Luv and Kush. Offspring of the Shotgun Shatrughan Sinha, the poor rich kids who couldn’t land themselves any notable films could definitely be include in the madness!

Other personalities who could be potential housemates are the singer Anushka Manchanda as eye candy (really?) and Aruna Irani as agony aunt! Poonam Pandey could also land herself her first legitimate gig outside of Twitter, but that’s tough this time given that the show is going to be family oriented and Salman Khan made clear he doesn’t’ want too much smut!

Well, although the suits at Bigg Boss 6 aren’t revealing anything much, we’re fairly certain that you may see a number of names mentioned in the show that airs on October 7.

So BollywoodLifers, keep watching this space for more super secret gossip from the house of Bigg Boss 6!
