It was an all celebrity line up this year. Besides their regular performances, the celebs were given to perform tasks at the premiere episode itself. The contestants did not even have a choice to select their beds rather they were given different coloured bands for choosing their BFF (Bed Friend Forever). The first episode will air from tonight (September 30) and before that that we bring you the full and final list of all the celebs who are locked inside the Bigg Boss 13 house.
Rashami Desai is going to be locked inside with her Dil Se Dil Tak co-star Siddharth and Uttaran co-star Arti Singh. Rashami and Sidharth were paired opposite each other on the fiction show Dil Se Dil Tak, which was on air a year ago, during which the two were linked. So, it will be interesting to see them together on this show. Buzz is, actor Arhaan Khan, who Rashami has been dating for the past few months, may also be a part of this season.
Last seen in 2017 in Dil Se Dil Tak, popular TV actor Siddharth Shukla has been away from the television screen for quite some time. The actor was at loggerheads with the makers of Dil Se Dil Tak. Right from his tantrums on the set to his fights with his co-stars, his acts left the producers with no option but to replace him. The 13th edition will see him don the image of an eligible bachelor and it will be interestingly to see whose attention he grabs and if he can control his cool. Bigg Boss 13 will mark his return on TV. This is not Siddharth’s first reality show, he was previously seen in Khatron Ke Khiladi.
Punjabi model, actress and singer Shehnaaz Gill is a part of the all celebrity line-up this season. She has many singles under her name. She is quite a hottie and will surely bring the glamour quotient in the house. And Bigg Boss will also see a singer in her this season.

Devoleena, rose to fame with the show Saath Nibhaana Saathiya, where she played the role of Gopi Modi. Post the show, Devoleena didn’t take up any big daily. The actress has transformed herself over the years, breaking the good bahu image. Her spunk will definitely add spice to the show.
The original ‘Saki’ girl Koena Mitra is all set to enter the Bigg Boss 13 house this season. Koena Mitra has done films like Musafir, Apna Sapna Money Money, Anamika and also a few regional films. The actress, who rose to fame with her dance moves in Saki Saki from Musafir, wasn’t too appreciative when the iconic song was remade. With Bigg Boss 13, the actress will be seen on-screen after a long gap.

Interestingly, he has written the first two episodes of Bigg Boss season 1, and will now be seen as a housemate.
