TV actor Mayur Verma confirms contesting ‘Bigg Boss 10’


Television actor Mayur Verma has been selected to contest in Salman Khan-hosted reality show ‘Bigg Boss 10’. The actor, who plays the role as Kartik Malhotra in Colors TV series ‘Swaragini’, confirmed his participation in the show to an entertainment portal.  

Mayur was also approached to be a wild card contestant on ‘Bigg Boss 9’ last year, but he turned down the offer due to his break-up with Marina Kuwar. He said he wasn’t comfortable sharing the screen space with his ex-girlfriend immediately after their split.

Marina was one of the wild card entrants of ‘Bigg Boss 9’ and bagged a lot of attention because of her lap dance on the show.

While Mayur has already confirmed his selection for the controversial show, an official announcement from the makers is awaited.

Popular MTV VJ Bani is also said to be a part of ‘Bigg Boss 10’. A report on SpotboyE stated that the ‘Roadies’ host has almost confirmed her participation in this season of the controversial reality show.

Several other popular names are rumoured to be contesting the show, including late actress Pratyusha Benerjee’s boyfriend Rahul Raj Singh, Bollywood actor Shiney Ahuja, Sana Saeed and comedian Sunil Grover.

This season, the Bigg Boss house will have a mix of both celebrities and common people. ‘Bigg Boss 10’ will go on air on October 16 on Colors TV. The show has retained its previous year’s time slot and the episodes will be telecasted on Monday-Friday at 10:30 pm.
