Bigg Boss 9: Rishabh Sinha, Puneet Vashist to enter as wild cards


Television actors Rishabh Sinha and Puneet Vashist are set to enter the ‘Bigg Boss 9’ house as the wild card entrants and create ‘tehelka’ in the house. While Rishabh will enter on day 22 of the show, i.e. Monday Puneet will be entering later in the week.

Rishabh is a former contestant of ‘MTV Spilitsvilla’ and has also acted in the daily soap ‘Qubool Hai’. Puneet is a known name in the entertainment industry. He has appeared in Bollywood films ‘All the Best: Fun Begins’ and as Shah Rukh Khan’s sidekick in ‘Josh’. He has also worked in TV serials like ‘Kkusum’, ‘Kaahin Kisii Roz’, ‘Lapataganj’, ‘Shastri Sisters’ and ‘Fear Files’.

Meanwhile, Rishabh said he wants to break the “jinx” by being the first wild card to win the show with a “killer strategy”. “I think it’s time to break the jinx…since none of the wild cards has ever won the show…This time it’s going to change…I am going to give it my all…I am going to do everything to win,” Rishabh was quoted by IANS.

While Rishabh was a contestant for the season five of ‘MTV Splitsvilla’, Suyyash and Prince too were part of the same show but in different seasons. When asked if this connection would get him closer to Suyyash or Prince, Rishabh said, “Of course not…I don’t like Suyyash at all. I don’t like men who take help from women to their advantage and to get work in Bollywood.”

“But that is outside ‘Bigg Boss’… Inside, I will deal with him…everything has to be from the ‘Bigg Boss’ house and in the ‘Bigg Boss’ house,” he added.
