After much debate over whether or not we would get a Bigg Boss OTT 3! The buzz has returned; now reports have finally made advancement and may have secured the Grand Premier date locked in.

Furthermore, reports have revealed the names of the show’s two confirmed contestants. And this Rajan Shahi heroine from Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai could be the highest-paid contestant on the show. Here’s all you should know about Bigg Boss OTT Season 3!


Following the success of Bigg Boss OTT Seasons 1 and 2, there has been a lot of anticipation for Bigg Boss OTT 3. Despite cancellation rumours, new reports indicate that the show will air soon and that they have locked in certain contestants who will begin filming for the promos soon.

While numerous names have circulated as possible new contestants for OTT season 3, current rumours indicate that two have been verified. Adnaan Shaikh and Pankit Thakker are the first two contenders for the current season. Fans’ interest has intensified after Bigg Boss-related social media pages announced their participation.

Pankit Thakker, known for his roles in popular TV shows such as Bahu Hamari Rajni Kant and Dill Mill Gayye, is expected to enter the Bigg Boss house.

Prior to Panit, Adnaan Shaikh emerged as BB OTT 3’s first verified competitor. Adnaan, a popular TikTok star, model, and influencer who is also a member of Mr. Faisu’s gang, has also confirmed his participation.

Shivangi’s name is frequently linked to Bigg Boss as a potential contestant, almost every year. According to recent rumours on Bigg Boss social media pages, television actress Shivangi Joshi has received an opportunity to appear in Bigg Boss OTT 3 and has been compensated well.

If she agrees, she might be the highest paid salary among all BB OTT 3 competitors. However, she is still in negotiations, so nothing is finalised just yet.

The release dates for Salman Khan’s third season have piqued fans’ interest the most. Typically, the concert concludes before the television version of Bigg Boss can begin.

According to insiders, the first teaser for the show will be formally unveiled in the final week of May, following the IPL 2024 finale, with the show set to broadcast in June. According to Bollywood Hungama, the show will premiere on June 4 or 5, 2024.

Some names of rumoured contestants have circulated on the internet, but we will only know the confirmed list once the show begins airing. Vicky Jain from Bigg Boss 17, actor Sheezan Khan, YouTubers, and social media personalities such as Rohit Zinjurke, Aryanshi Sharma, Sanket Upadhyay, Tushar Silawat, and Mohd Saria have all been making the rounds.

Recently, celebrities such as singer Sreeram Chandra and TV actress Daljeet Kaur, who has been in the spotlight due to their relationship, have been included as potential contestants.

Another name that has come up is YouTuber Maxtern, also known as Sagar Thakur. That name may seem familiar because just a few weeks ago, he got into a physical spat with Elvish Yadav, the winner of Bigg Boss OTT2.
