In a new interview with Time of India, Charu had said, “Yes, I have been contacted by the makers for the upcoming season (of Bigg Boss) but I have no clue about Rajeev. Having said that, I don’t have any problem doing a show with him. Work is work.”
Rajeev had said, “So far, they have only been keen on me. They never spoke about Charu… I have mixed reactions to Bigg Boss from my family and friends. So, let’s see how things work out. I am still thinking about the offer.”
As per news agency ANI, Shehnaaz Gill will be hosting Bigg Boss 16 with Salman Khan. As per the report, the show will begin on October 1 and Shehnaaz will appear on the premiere episode of the show along with Salman.
