- Hiten Tejwani was the first celeb contestant to enter the house
- Hina Khan also joined as a contestant
- So did Shilpa Shinde
Salman also plugged in Judwaa 2 promotions with Varun Dhawan, Jacqueline Fernandez and Taapsee Pannu giving us a sneak peek of the beautifully decorated house. They set the floor on fire with the viral Judwaa 2 tracks Tan Tana Tan Tan Tan Tara and Oonch Hai Building 2.0. Team Judwaa 2 also joined Salman on stage for a fun filled session - Varun even tried to claim a gift sent for Salman and posed as the show host in the superstar's absence.
Without much ado, Salman Khan introduced the first contestant - TV actor Hiten Tejwani, who was joined on the sets with his actress wife Gauri Pradhan. The next three contestants were VJs Priyank and Benafshah Soonawalla, and rapper Akash Dadlani. Bandgi Kalra and actress-model Arshi Khan from Mumbai also joined the list of contestants. Puneesh Sharma, an investor and a party animal and Zubair Khan, who is Dawood Ibrahim's sister Haseena Parkar's son-in-law, were also welcomed on the show.
TV actress Hina Khan, an ex Khatron Ke Khiladi contestant, also entered the house with her motto being: "girl power!"
The list of contestants was rounded off with Bhabiji Ghar Par Hain actress Shilpa Shinde and Vikas Gupta, the show's producer. After Shilpa Shinde quit the show, the two had exchanged allegations in a controversial blame game - a glimpse of which also took place on the stage of Bigg Boss.
Curtains were drawn on the grand premiere of Bigg Boss with a surprise we all are going to love. For the first time ever, Salman Khan is also placed at a secret location inside the house but the contestants do not know.
