OK so I just finished live-tweeting the premiere of Bigg Boss 9 (shout out to all those who joined in!) and I thought I must blog the highlights of the dhamaakedaar episode immediately – because MissMalini.com is going to be your destination for everything Bigg Boss 9 for the next 100 days! Yup, you’re welcome. The theme this time is Double Trouble and from the looks of it, we won’t be disappointed at all!

P.S: How hot was Salman Khan looking in his new hairdo for Sultan!

Meet your inmates!

1. Roopal Tyagi

  • Claim To Fame

Played Gunjan in Sapne Suhane Ladakpan Ke on Zee Tv, and dated co-star Ankit Gera who apparently two-timed her.

  • Best Line Of The Night

Meri ladkiyon se kaafi achhi banti hai.

  • First impressions

Seems nice and sorted for now, but then you know what they say… can’t take anything for granted in this house.

  • Potential For Drama

I feel like she’d be one of those people who’d always insist on keeping their opinions forward. Also, “meri ladkiyon se kaafi achhi banti hai” can easily translate to major bitching and gossip potential!

She’s been paired with…

2. Digangana Suryavanshi

Played Veera in  Ek Veer Ki Ardaas…Veera.

  • Best Line Of The Night

Main doodh se nahaati hoon!

– on how she celebrates her birthday.

  • First Impression

Childish and borderline annoying for now. And I don’t think I can take someone seriously who says their life has been a “princess culture”. Also, that amazing moment when Salman Khan questions someone else’s accent!

  • Potential For Drama

She’s going to get on everyone’s nerves soon. It’s going to happen! So, drama? OMG LOTS! Also seems like a cry baby. Ugh.

3. Aman Verma

Aman Verma

  • Claim To Fame

From anchoring Khulja Sim Sim, to playing the second Mihir Virani on Kyunki Saans Bhi Kabi Bahu Thhi, to being involved in a serious casting couch controversy, to Harpic ads, to bit roles in movies (KRK‘s Deshdrohi being a major one! #NoJokes) to hosting more shows… Aman has really done it all!

  • Best Line Of The Night

Kuch bhi ho sakta hai!

– on Bigg Boss.

  • First Impressions

Surprisingly nice, calm and smart. I’m impressed! And I feel I’m a little more happy than I should be about Aman Yatan Verma’s return. His name has such a nice ring to it, don’t you think?

  • Potential For Drama

He’s clearly in the mood to rekindle his old sting operation controversy. Real classy, Aman! *rolls eyes*
So yes, lots of drama!

He’s paired with…

4. Kishwer Merchant

  • Claim To Fame

Done a series of roles from Hip Hip Hurray to Itna Karo Na Mujhe Pyaar. She’s also dating Suyyash Rai!

  • Best Line Of The Night

Agar inpe nahi hoga camera, toh mujhpe toh definitely hoga!

– on choosing Aman Verma as a partner.

  • First Impressions

I actually like her vibe on the show the best so far!

  • Potential For Drama

Don’t know about others, but I feel we’ll see way too many #SuKish moments on the show. Also, she told me last night that she has a temper problem. Ooooh!

5. Suyyash Rai

Known for Pyaar Kii Ye Ek Kahaani as Neil and Phir Bhi Na Maane…Badtameez Dil as Nissar

  • Best Line Of The Night

Didn’t really have one.

  • First Impressions

Really don’t have any. Seems sweet and calm, but that doesn’t seem like his natural personality for some reason.

  • Potential For Drama

More emotional drama, I feel.

He’s paired with…

6. Rimi Sen

  • Claim To Fame

Probably the most “famous” out of the lot. Has done movies like Hungama and Dhoom. Remember Dil Bole Shikdum?

  • Best Line Of The Night

“Yeh swimming pool itna chhota?”

– looking at a jacuzzi.

  • First Impressions

TBH, I found her plain awkward as of now.

  • Potential For Drama

She gave me a strange Minissha Lamba deja vu, you know? Seemingly vanilla but Minisha emerged as a strong contender despite everything, remember?

7. Rochelle Rao

  • Claim To Fame

Miss India International 2012, IPL host and former Khatron Ke Khiladi contestant.

  • Best Line Of The Night

Actually my boyfriend is on the show too!

– on having reservations about pairing with Prince.

  • First Impressions

A little too cautious for Bigg Boss. Hoping her real personality comes out soon as she lets go slowly but surely!

  • Potential For Drama

Don’t know yet. She had a lot to say when I spoke to her last night, none of it is translating on the show yet.

She’s paired with…

8. Prince Narula

  • First impression

His first impression happened many many times because his introduction video played many many times! LOL

Hot-headed Punjabi guy who’s open to change his single status – enough said?

  • Best Line Of The Night

A very good family man vibe.

Made her debut last month with Kunal Kemmu in Bhaag Johnny. Bhaag Johnny, who? Exactly!

  • Best Line Of The Night

Main chanchal ladki hoon. I’m a mix of shy and bold.

– on herself.

  • First Impressions

Hot. Talks when not required.

  • Potential For Drama

Her tendency to talk out of turn might cause one too many, erm, differences!

She’s paired with…

12. Keith Sequeira

  • Claim To Fame

Former VJ and model turned actor. Was last seen in Madhur Bhandarkar‘s Calendar Girls.

  • Best Line Of The Night

Didn’t really have any.

  • First Impressions

I was actually rooting for Keith, but he’s coming across as a little too rehearsed for now. Don’t you think? But, so cute! However, everyone is really trying to make Mandana and Keith happen. Interesting!

  • Potential For Drama

Too early to call! But considering his ladylove is in the same house, can drama be too far from a couple ever?

13. Arvind Vegda

Blah! Unless, you’re talking about his clothes.

  • First Impressions

DOUCHE!

  • Potential For Drama

Lots! Also, considering Roopal angle. Yawn.

Highlights

  1. Daisy Shah and Elli Avram opened the show. Good for Daisy Shah! Where was she, anyway?
  2. The highlight of the show has got to be every woman rejecting Prince as a partner and his introduction video playing 800 times! Salman Khan finally said, “45 minutes ke andar yeh ladkaa chhaaa gaya hai Hindustan mein!” Loving!
  3. Kishwer Merchant & Aman Verma are being completely Gossip Girl XoXo already. Looking forward to them.
  4.  I love you, Salman Khan <3 You’re my butter naan!
  5. Aman Yatan Verma & Rimi Sen played baap-beti in Baghban! Did anyone else make that connection? OMG!
  6. Next episode is going to see one contestant from each pair sacrifice their bags! For the whole show! And of course, nominations.

Stay tuned! Watch this space :D
