Shilpa Shetty found international fame with the UK based show Big Brother. And now her younger sister Shamita will step into the world of reality television with Bigg Boss.
The third season of the popular reality show will be high on glamour with Shetty's housemates like yesteryear's actress Poonam Dhillon and item girl Sherlyn Chopra.
The show will air from October 4 on Colors.
It has already grabbed headlines, thanks to its superstar host Amitabh Bachchan.
While the channel has gone to great length to keep the names of the housemates a secret, sources told PTI that Shamita Shetty, Poonam Dhillon, director-actor Kamal Khan of Desh Drohi fame and Vindu, the son of actor-wrestler Dara Singh will be a part of the show.
The other names doing the rounds are of Aditya Pancholi and yesteryear villain Punit Issar.
Reports suggest that German model Claudia Ciesla will also be a part of the show.
The programme revolves around 14 celebrities, who are locked up in a house without any communication with the world outside, surrounded by cameras watching their every move. The show has earlier featured item girls Rakhi Sawant, Payal Rohtagi, Sambhavna Seth, Rahul Roy, Rahul Mahajan, Ravi Kishan and Monica Bedi.
