It’s that time of the year again. Season 11 of Bigg Boss is almost here. Salman Khan also returns as the host again, and like last year, this time too the contestants will have a mix of celebrities and common people. The makers have introduced the commoners of this year’s line-up, which was quite surprising considering that this mystery officially comes to an end every year only during the telecast of the premiere episode. So clearly the bosses at Colors and Endemol Shine India have adopted a different strategy this season. Maybe the idea behind introducing the commoners before the show kickstarts is influenced by the fact that the masses should get a little familiar with them. But then the show runners decided to up their game and surprised us further by revealing the first celebrity contestant just few minutes back. Yep! It’s Shilpa Shinde, who has been revealed as the first celebrity to be locked inside the Bigg Boss house this year.
Shilpa is introduced as Bhabhi ji by host Salman a clear nod at the actress’ association with the hit show Bhabhi Ji Ghar Par Hai. Although we had already told you about Shilpa’s participation on the show, but this video is an official confirmation. Check out the video right here:
