Bigg Boss 11 premieres on October 1. Like every year, channel has tried it’s best to keep the names of the contestants under wraps. Only today, they officially revealed the first contestant to be Bhabhi Ji Ghar Par Hai actress Shilpa Shinde, with a small video released on digital platforms. But for now, names of other contestants are still concealed under strict embargo. But, funnily, name of one of the contestants has been revealed by the world even before the channel or the person himself could reveal it. And the man is casting director/producer Vikas Gupta.
There were rumours that Vikas has been approached by the show though he never gave a confirmation to the media. But today, his good friend Divyanka Tripathi, star of Yeh Hai Mohabbatein, wished Vikas all the best through a video and, confirmed his participation. Though the video was later deleted, it still managed to grab enough eyeballs to make headlines.
As per a reports, the video was uploaded by Vikas’ own production house named Lost Boys. It is stated that this must have been a humane error to upload the video before intended. Though the video has been pulled down, screenshots of the same have surfaced on the internet. The video had Divyanka saying, “Hi friends please support Vikas as he is a good person, good friend and right now he is in Lonavala at Bigg Boss House”, reports SpotboyE.
Divyanka won’t be the only star who has revealed Vikas’ name to the audience. Earlier, former Bigg Boss contestant, Sunny Leone, too, had a slip of tongue and revealed Vikas’ name during a media interaction. C’mon! That is hilarious. Right?
