Salman Khan's "Bigg Boss 9" will start airing from 11 October, but the final list of contestants taking part in the season has still been kept under wraps.

While several names of probable contestants have been doing the rounds, the latest reports suggest that TV actress Kishwer Merchantt will be part of the show.

Kishwer, who played the negative character of Noyonika in MTV's popular show "Kaisi Yeh Yaariaan 2", is currently seen in "Itna Karo Na Mujhe Pyaar".

Besides Kishwer, Rishabh Sinha -- who was part of "Splitsvilla" and "Qubool Hai" -- will reportedly participate in the show, reported Bollywood Life.

"Bigg Boss 9" will be aired at 9 pm on Colors TV on its opening episode. But after the premiere episode, the show will air every Monday to Friday at 10.30 pm.

The theme of the ninth season is "Double Trouble" as the contestants will be competing in couples. The couples will have to reportedly face their exes, and their lives inside the house will be made tougher by introducing monitored crying babies.

Further, there were reports that the couples with different personalities will be mixed and matched to complete a given task. Like last year, wherein the aeroplane theme got over within the first few weeks of the show, this time also the couple-twist will be removed after three weeks.
