It looks like a double treat for the fans of "Bigg Boss 9" host Salman Khan. After the superstar made them happy by announcing his return as the host of the ninth season of the controversial show, it has now been reported that his look-alike Najeem Khan is likely to participate in it.

Najeem was last seen in Salman's hugely successful film "Bajrangi Bhaijaan".

Besides Salman's look-alike, Ranbir Kapoor's cousin Armaan Jain, who made his Bollywood debut with "Lekar Hum Deewana Dil" is said to be one among the confirmed list of contestants to enter "Bigg Boss 9" house.

Other possible contestants of the new season are "Cocktail" actress Diana Penty, controversial spiritual leader and "MSG 2" actor Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh, Bollywood actor Aditya Pancholi, TV actors Mahhi Vij, Arshi Khan and Mohit Malhotra. Award winning filmmaker and LGBT rights activist Nakshatra Bagwe is also likely to participate.

While the details regarding the new season are still awaited, it has been reported that this time the theme will be Navrang (nine colours) or Navras (nine emotions). However, the first promo of "Bigg Boss 9" hints that real life couples might be competing against each other.

Some reports also suggest that like last year, when the aeroplane theme got over within the first few weeks of the show, the couple-twist would also be taken off this time after three weeks.

"Bigg Boss 9" is likely to start on 11 October, soon after "Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa Reloaded" wraps up.
