Bigg Boss returned for its 17th edition with the opening ceremony premiering on Colors TV and JioCinema on Sunday. With some major changes and new additions to the game, like some contestants getting the facility of a phone call when inside, the new season looks all the more exciting.

What is even more interesting are the contestants from a wider spectrum of fields who are chosen to compete against each other. There are surprises like Rinu Dhawan, who is known for Kahani Ghar Ghar Kii, and Sunny Arya, the comedian who won everyone's hearts for his relief work during COVID.

Salman Khan referred to the contestants as being more explosive than a bomb. Here are 5 contestants to watch out for this season:

1) Jigna Vora

Jigna Vora, the journalist who was wrongly accused of murdering another journalist and had to spend some time in jail, is a strong contestant for this season. Made even more popular by Hansal Mehta's recently released web-show Scoop, Jigna Vora was welcomed in full swing in the house of Bigg Boss.

Interestingly, in the show, Karishma Tanna plays her fictional character, and she was a contestant for Bigg Boss in 2014, where she was the 1st runner-up.

2) Munawar Faruqui

The well-known Indian stand-up comedian, who rose to fame in recent years for his political jokes, is another strong face for the season. Munawar was part of another reality show, Lock Up, where he emerged as the winner with the support of his fans.

In 2021, he was arrested during his performance for a joke he didn't make. He was later granted bail by the Supreme Court of India.

3) Ankita Lokhande

The famed actress Ankita Lokhande has joined the Bigg Boss house along with her husband, Vikki Jain, who is a businessman. She was earlier dating Sushant Singh Rajput, and the two were quite close. Ever since Sushant's death, she has been the target of his fans, who have been trolling her.

Couples always make the most interesting contestants in the house, and with the two entering together, it is surely going to spice things up.

5) Abhishek Kumar

Making a controversy right on the premiere, Abhishek Kumar entered the house this season. Along with him, Isha Malviya will also be seen in the house. The two met on the sets of the show Udaariyaan and were dating for some time.

In their first fight during the premiere, a lot of heated words were exchanged, and Isha even accused Abhishek of physically assaulting her.
