Bigg Boss, the Indian version of Celebrity Big Brother (UK), will premiere in a month's time, but a tentative list of the contestants has leaked online suggesting an intriguing season 9. Moreover, rumours suggest that Bollywood superstar Salman Khan may return to host the ninth season of the controversial reality TV show.

Zee News has released the leaked list of participants who may appear in Bigg Boss season 9 that includes the name of a self-proclaimed "god woman" as well.

Shweta Basu Prasad: The former child artist and regional movie star, was recently accused of being involved in a prostitution ring, after she was caught by the police during a raid at a hotel. Prasad, denied the allegations and has been trying to make a comeback to the mainstream entertainment industry, ever since she was released from the remand home.

Rahul Yadav: The former CEO of Housing.com turned into an internet sensation after he infamously resigned from his post. The former property website owner's entry to the BB house can bring some major drama as he is popular for his unique antics.

Yadav has reportedly also hinted at the possibility of him joining the show to be hosted by the Bajrangi Bhaijaan star.

The former CEO sought for some advice from fans on his Facebook page saying: "And the Big Boss talks are getting serious. Any advice?"

VJ Bani: The MTV India presenter was one of the toughest female contender of the channel's Rodies show, which she finally won in mid-2000. The tattoo-lover would surely teach some great lessons to her co-contestants, if she enters the controversial house.

Radhe Maa: The self-proclaimed "god woman" would have a thing or two to teach and learn from other housemates, when she enters Bigg Boss season 9.

Further, rumour mills suggest that popular Indian TV actresses Aasha Negi, Rashami Desai and Sana Saeed may appear on the controversial show.

The leaked names of the contestants sure sounds like a perfect ensemble for the show, however, the network is yet to confirm the participants. In fact, the channel had claimed that it would keep the list a secret until Khan introduces the contestants at the premiere episode.
