Of late, speculations have been doing the rounds that Mandana Karimi will be evicted from "Bigg Boss 9" on 16 January, as her film "Kyaa Kool Hain Hum 3" hits screens on 22 January and the makers would like her to promote the film.

Evicted contestant Suyyash Rai, who believed that the voting arrangements are fixed, also predicted the eviction of the Iranian beauty next week.

However, latest reports suggest that the makers of "Bigg Boss 9" are reconsidering their plan as Mandana is a strong contender.

While the makers are contemplating on it, "Kya Kool Hain Hum 3" actors Tusshar Kapoor and Aftab Shivdasani have decided to approach Salman Khan and request him to let Mandana out of the house on a temporary basis from 16 to 22 January in order to promote the film.

"The actors have found a way that Mandana stays in the Bigg Boss game and can promote the film too. They are going to request Salman Khan tomorrow or in a few days to let Mandana leave the house temporarily to help them promote Kyaa Kool Hain Hum 3. Post the film's release, that is January 22, Mandana can return to the Bigg Boss house," a source told Bollywood Life.

It remains to be seen if Mandana gets evicted next week or is allowed to leave the house on a temporary basis.

Meanwhile, "Bigg Boss 9" witnessed the eviction of Kishwer Merchantt, who chose to quit the show and take home an amount of Rs 15 lakh, while allowing Prince Narula to get the "ticket to finale".
