No Common Man
Going by the reports, Colors Kannada has not selected commoners this season. Although there have been many lists about the contestants doing rounds on internet, Parameshwar Gundkal, Business Head of Colors Kannada, has brushed it off as fake lists as the contestants were finalised recently. 

"There are plenty of lists out there on internet. Even before we planned this season the names had started doing rounds. I have come across many names. I think out of so many lists people can see only one or two names on our show," Parameshwar Gundkal said in a press meet.

Parameshwar Gundkal added that all the contestants are quarantined as the Covid-19 is still around us. "He adds, "They were finalised just days ago and quarantined in different places."
