"Bigg Boss 9" is gathering steam and at the centre of it are the expected contestants.

While some names have been doing the rounds, "Meri Aashiqui Tumse Hi" actor Amit Tandon (Rajat) has expressed an interest in participating in the high voltage reality show confirming he was approached by the makers.

"I have been approached for Bigg Boss 9 and I am positive about it. I am a difficult person to live with, but I have done several reality shows and I would love to take up the challenge," he told DNA, adding how he was away from the small screen for a while to take care of his business, but now he is back and has already done a strong cameo in hit daily soap "Yeh Hai Mohabbatein".

He may sound keen, but a bunch of celebs are not too pleased about their name being attached to the show. Both Shiney Ahuja and Radhe Maa have threatened to sue the channel.

Meanwhile, controversial spiritual leader Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh, who has acted in his film "MSG: The Messenger of God" and now working on its sequel "MSG 2", has put a few conditions for being a part of the show. He said he would enter only if he is allowed to step out of the mad house everyday for a couple of hours to meet his followers.

In other news, some unconfirmed reports suggest adult star Mia Khalifa has been approached for "BB9". Also, Roopal Tyagi and ex-boyfriend Ankit Gera have reportedly been pulled on board.

"Yes, as per the 'Double Trouble' theme, the Bigg Boss house will see contestants in duo. And to add tadka to the flavor, these ex flames have been signed," Tellychakkar quoted a source as saying.

However, since there has been no official announcement yet, this can be considered as a mere speculation.
