Every year, there is a lot of speculation about the contestant list for the next season, with several names doing rounds, from the day the previous season ends to the day the new one starts.
Last year, YouTuber CarryMinati aka Ajey Nagar was rumoured to be a part of the 14th season of Bigg Boss, but it turned out not to be true. Another YouTuber Ashish Chanchlani, has also been several times in the news as a speculated contestant. As for his work, he even makes a lot of spoof videos on Bigg Boss, with his last video that he made six months ago, crossing 43 million views on YouTube.
Ask Ashish if he would ever say yes to being a part of the show, after all the show has been a way for him making a lot of content and money, and he replies, “No, as I never wanted to do that. I feel like those people go to Bigg Boss whose career has faded away and they want to revive it. It does give you a big fan base, but it’s not my cup of tea. Above that, I can’t live without my phone for three months as that is my bread and butter, and now they even extend it to even five-six months, so it is impossible for me to survive there.”
