It is not confirmed whether a contestant will get eliminated this week, but it is certain that a wild card celebrity will reportedly enter the house.

On Wednesday, it was reported that a third wild card contestant will enter the house. Speculations were rife that "Style" actor Sahil Khan will enter the show, but the latest reports reveal a different celebrity's name.

And the third wild card contestant is none other than well-known fashion designer Kanwaljeet Singh.

Kanwaljeet confirmed the news to a leading daily and said that he does not have any strategy.

"I think it's the nine-year itch. I had been approached for the past seasons but I have always refused. I recently met Raj Nayak at a party and things just worked out. I won't miss much of the outside world, besides of course my darling daughter and granddaughter. The plan is to go in and enjoy. I think I'm the first 60-year-old in the house," Kanwaljeet told Asian Age in an interview.

Talking about the ninth season, he said that the show spiced up only after wild card contestants entered.

"It was thanda before but now the show is picking up with the wildcards coming in. I loved Mandana Karimi in the beginning. She was being herself even when everyone was against her. Rochelle Rao came as a big surprise. I know Kishwer Merchant a little as we meet at parties and Keith Sequeira is a friend. I can't wait for his return," he told the leading daily. 

When asked whether it is an advantage of being a wild card entry, he replied saying that it is better now as he has seen a few episodes of "Bigg Boss 9".

According to the reports, Kanwaljeet will enter the house this Friday, while Keith Sequeira, who left the house mid-way, will return this week.

"Bigg Boss 9" airs at 10.30 pm from Monday to Friday, while on weekends it airs at 9 pm on Colors TV.
