By Anil Merani| Yesterday there was speculation that Star Plus show Imlie female lead Sumbul Touqueer Khan might join her co-star Fahmaan Khan in Bigg Boss 16.
However, we at tellyexpress never believe in giving out half-baked stories and hence reached out directly to Sumbul herself, who has denied the news. Sumbul and Fahman quit Imli, not wanting to play parents in the upcoming gen leap.
Is she telling the truth, or is she forced to decline due to contractual issues?
There is no confirmation of Fahmaan’s name as well.
We had earlier already debunked the names of Shubhanti Atre Divyanka Tripathi, and now we also add Sumbul’s name to the not doing list.
We wonder how such names are coming out without due diligence. The loose dropping of celeb names is common every season. Maybe it helps create an extra buzz around the show, explains a source.
The same source says Shivin Narang, Kanika Mann, Munawar Faruqui, Madarikashi Mundle and Prakruti Mishra are confirmed.
Other unconfirmed names include Tina Datta, Charu Asopa and hubby Rajeev Sen, Farmani Naaz, Twinkle Kapoor and Faisal Shaikh (Mr Faisu)
We have tried to reach out to all of them but have not been able to establish contact.
We will update this story as soon we get any updates.
Bigg Boss starts 3rd October Mon – Friday at 10 pm and Sat-Sun 9.30
