Even as Bigg Boss 10 is all set to hit the screen October 16 onwards, speculations regarding the list of contestants have been doing the rounds.

After VJ Bani of MTV Roadies fame, Mayur Verma and Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai actor Rohan Mehra, rumour has it that Parth Samthaan of Kaisi Yeh Yaariaan has been approached for the controversial reality show. Parth is an ideal contestant for the new season of Bigg Boss considering that the actor has been embroiled in a lot of controversies in the past one year and also has a huge fan-base.

However, Parth has refuted the rumour. "I have not been approached for the show and even if the makers gave me a call, I would have missed it because I don't generally pick up calls from unknwon number, [sic]" he told India Forums.

Other possible celebrity contestants of Bigg Boss 10 are Rahul Raj Singh, who happens to be late television actress Pratyusha Banerjee's boyfriend, Kuch Kuch Hota Hai child actress Sana Saeed aka Anjali, Bollywood actor Shiny Ahuja and gay rights activist Nakshatra Bagwe.

Meanwhile, Bigg Boss 10, hosted by Salman Khan, will be aired on Colors TV channel. The show will be telecast at 10.30 pm from Monday to Friday, and at 9 pm on Saturday and Sunday. The new season will see commoners participating in the show along with celebrities.
