Bigg Boss 11: Top TV Celebrities & Commoners Hint At A Superhit Season; Highlights Of The Opening Episode!

So, there are finally 18 contestants in the Bigg Boss house, and Salman Khan is going to create history by becoming their padosis' neighbour! He will live in a house near the neighbours on the set. Bhai packed his bag ang baggage and he'll keep an eye on them by staying in Padosi ke padosi ka ghar. 

Bigg Boss ne sabhi ka hardik swagat kiya and contestants went nuts hearing that famous voice. Bigg Boss told the padosis that they'll have to stick together and the housemates shouldn't get to know that they're actually new to each other. Salman hinted at an entertaining season because many of them actually know each other in real life and have already fought. Don't trouble your mother and keep reading Desimartini for more updates on Bigg Boss Season 11. Here are the highlights of the opening episode of this season. 

The next contestant is Vikas Gupta whose AV included all top actors from Ekta Kapoor's shows including Karan Patel and Karan Kundra, as well as actresses Surinder Kaur and Sasha Agha. Ekta herself gave him advice to not fight with the inmates. Vikas was the head of the channel/ programming head when Shilpa was a part of the show. Shilpa didn't seem quite welcoming towards him and said they have a gehra rishta. 

Vikas explained what went wrong and explained that she was asking for more compensation than she had signed off on the contract. Her salary was supposed to be hiked after a year of the contract, but she kept on asking for more every three months. 

The next bombshell in the Bigg Boss house is former Angoori Bhabi Shilpa Shinde. She was a part of the popular comedy show Bhabi Ji Ghar Par Hain on And TV. Salman gave a grand introduction about her claim to fame and how she conquered hearts and suddenly vanished. 

She challenged Salman to taste a variety of pickles calling it 'Achaar Pe Vichaar'. Salman said even pregnant women won't eat so much achaar! Salman Khan almost ruined the craze around pickles by saying he can smell fart around the containers. He couldn't tell the difference between aam ka achaar and nimbu ka achaar. 

Puneesh was welcomed by the padosis but had to take the shower challenge by Salman Khan.



Zubair Khan, the next contestant is from Dongri in Mumbai. He belongs to a gangster family and he was the director and actor of the movie Lakeer Ke Fakeer. He is Dawood Ibrahim's son-in-law and once an article written against him changed his life forever. He hasn't met his wife and children for the past eight months. He has been accused of shoot at site.



The first tiff of the house already!! 





Punish Sharma, another commoner is a former reality show winner.The name of that show was Sarkar Ki Duniya where he had won 1 Crore rupees. He loves being a Casanova and he's here to make people bend their knees for him.

Hina Khan bid adieu to family and got a warm welcome in the house! Hoping her Bigg Boss journey goes far.

Hina sang Lag Jaa Gale, the song she sang while a cobra was placed around her neck like a scarf, and she had vouched that she'll never sing this song again, but she finally did. She lost Khatron Ke Khiladi by just seven seconds in the last task.

She's here to change her bahu image. She has already chosen her launch, eviction and finale costumes before entering the shows. Salman calls her Aamir Khan.



After her claim to fame with Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai and exhibiting her though side on Khatron Ke Khiladi Hina Khan arrived on Bigg Boss 11 as the next contestant.   Hina Khan takes over the stage to the tunes of Lag Jaa Gale! And bonus as Salman Khan joined her on stage and danced to Main Hoon Hero Tera!



Inmates welcome Arshi Khan and Bandagi Kalra in the house! time for the next inmate!

Arshi Khan, a celebrity contestant wrote Bigg Boss on her cleavage and she confessed that she will thoroughly enjoy creating ruckus inside the house. She'll burn then all and she loves controversies.

Bandagi Kalra who's entering the house with Arshi is equally glamorous and she's not afraid of Arshi's tantrums. The two ladies enter a face off in Salman Khan's Sultani Akhada!



The big Judwaa moment on Bigg Boss. The Judwaa 2 ladies shake a leg with Salman Khan. Varun, Taapse, Jacky and Salman sang songs from their movies and Salman does his signature step. 



Jyoti marks a huge moment of the show. She says she wants to be like Aishwarya Rai.Salman took it in the right spirit. She passes her test and enters the house!

Varun Dhawan introduces the new inmate from Bihar Jyoti Kumari. But she has to pass a test too! In the meanwhile, she made a very sweet gesture and gifted Salman a picture collage of his photos. 

She's a peon's daughter. She's from Bihar, teaches children and she claims she's a very muhfat girl.



Varun Dhawan and team Judwaa 2 arrived on the sets of Bigg Boss 11 people! It's time for some Judwaa fun and some great banter between the original Judwaa star Salman Khan and the new Judwaa star Varun Dhawan!



Akash Anil Dadlani rapped his way into the Bigg Boss house. 



Benafsha Soonawalla entered the house! It's going to be really hot this season! Priyank Sharma had to take Salman's shower task though!


A task for entering the house too?? Salman Khan challenged Akash Anil Dadlani to take a shower but he refused to get his hair wet. But Salman Bhai ki commitment hai.. Wo khud ki bhi nahi sunte!

Akash Anil Dadlani from Texas is the next entrant in the Bigg Boss house. Certainly dressed for the occasion He shared some funny banter with Salman, gonna watch out for their talks through V TV ahead in the season!

VJ Benaf Soonawala and Splitsvilla contestant Priyank Sharma are the next celebs on the show. Salman said that he's jealous of his body and biceps! He tried to tease him by saying he was wearing superman ki chaddi! 

Shivani is here to transform the image of babas which was maligned by Swami Om last year. 

"Main chalti phirti afaat hoon" said Haryanvi singer Sapna Chaudhary as she danced her way into Bigg Boss. Salman Khan couldn't stop gushing about her popularity and how there were thousands of fans when she came for the audition. She also confessed that she once tried to commit suicide by eating poison, but she's glad that she learnt a lesson from it and life is amazing now. 

There are four padosis in the house who are Sabyasachi (who claims to be straight forward and he has the knack of spotting the dukhti nabz of people), Mehjabin said she's an anaconda and she doesn't spit out her prey after she eats it. Australian beauty pageant winner Lucinda Nicholos said that she loves India and knows a little bit of Hindi. She's also a yoga instructor. Luv Tyagi from Delhi is also a part of this group  of four padosis. 

Bigg Boss showed a montage of many commoners who look really sensational and daring to create trouble in the house. One of them is openly homeosexual, another is a beauty pageant winner, one is a bahu who seems to have had a bad time, and others are jsut young blooded people, waiting to explode on the show. Bigg Boss seems to have selected dynamites as commoners this time. 

Akash Dadlani was already inside the house, but in Kaal Kothari, a few feet below the ground level. He's a rapper and already missing his mamma! He was super happy to see another Sindhi brother in the house as Hiten Tejwani. 

And the FIRST CONTESTANT of Bigg Boss Season 11 is HITEN TEJWANI!!!!! 

He was asked by a random padosi who wasn't seen around, as he was hung and swung around by Jallad on a dart board. Salman asked him why he keeps saying no to shows to which Hiten said that he was away from television because he was being offered the same kind of roles. 

Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thhi and Kutumb fame Gauri Pradhan and Hiten Tejwani entered to leave everyone shocked as they performed on Prem Ratan Dhan Payo! But only one of them will go inside the house! Guess who will? 

Varun Dhawan entered into the house dancing on Oonchi Hai Building from Judwaa 2! Taapsee and Jacqueline joined him and Bigg Boss house suddenly seemed perfect for a quintessential David Dhawan song where people dance from room to room! Salman Khan, the original Judwaa joined them in full swag on Tan Tana Tan Tan Tan Tara! 

Salman introduced Padosis (neighbours first)! We're super excited to know if we'll find another Manu Punjabi and Manveer this year! Kabhi ghar walon ka baaja bajayenge kabhi baaraha bajayenge! 

Salman danced on a parody of Didi Tera Deewana with hilarious lyrics about Bigg Boss. Then he tuned into Naye Rang Mein Basne Wale (Mere Tang Mein Rangne Wali from Maine Pyaar Kiya). Salman then grooved into another parody singing aane wale hain padosi bajane sabke baarah (on the tune of Hangover from Kick). 


Salman said Shaadi aur Bigg Boss ek hi baat hai! Jo milta hai usse kaam chalana padta hai, isliye main single hi achha hoon! Bigg Boss ke ek season se doosre season mein pahunchne mein utna hi time lagta hai jitna maa banne mein... 9 mahine! 

Badal gaya hai badal gaya hai, bahot kuchh badal gaya hai, says Salman Khan kick started the 11th season of Bigg Boss 11. Hina Khan will be singing Lag Jaa Gale, Shilpa Shinde aka Angoori Bhabi will bring Achaar for Salman. Varun and team Jduwaa 2 will be performing on thier osngs and the first contestant enters into the Kaal Kothari right away! 

It's that time of the year again! Bigg Boss 11 is all set to take over three months of your life now and like loyal fans we know you've gathered all information about the Bigg Boss house for season 11 already. The season will have commoners and celebrities like last year, and there are a few major additions this year. The most interesting bit is the 'Padosi' concept of having neighbours, where we believe that commoners will be the neighbours of celebs. We also have the famous Chutki-Shopkeeper aka Gaurav Gera as Pinky Bhabhi to splurge all gossip about the Bigg Boss house in Bigg Boss Season 11. Salman Khan is apparently charging 11 Cr per episode, so we're hoping it better be worth the moolahs being spent by Colors TV. 

The tentative list of contestants for Bigg Boss Season 11 is as follows: 

Commoners: Shivani Durgah, Zubair Khan, Jyoti Kumari, Sapna Choudhary

Celebs: Hina Khan aka Akshara from Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai, Hiten Tejwani, former Angoori Bhabi Shilpa Shinde, VJ Benaf, web series producer Vikas Gupta and Splitsvilla contestant Priyank Sharma.
