Every year, there are some contestants in the Bigg Boss house who make it to the show because of some star connection. This year it is model Niketan Madhok, who is part of Salman Khan's inner circle, will enter the Bigg Boss house.
Niketan is the second recommendation of Salman as the superstar and host of the show had put a word for model/actor Mahek Chahal too last year. Sameer Soni was recommended to the channel bosses by Ekta Kapoor because of her closeness to his wife Neelam.
Vindu Dara Singh made it to the show thanks to a recommendation by Akshay Kumar. It was producer-director Karan Johar who requested host Salman Khan to cast his family friend and model Hrishant Goswami in the show.
It will be interesting to see how far Salman’s recommendation will go in the show, which is renowned for testing patience.
