It has been said that the season 14’s contestants will have both celebs and commoners. The house and it’s inside will be properly sanitized to avoid infections.
A source has been quoted as saying to a portal by Bollywood Life, “While the show had started on October 1 last year, this time around, the shoot is likely to begin from the last week of October. The participants will be a mix of celebrities and commoners. The team has shortlisted 30 people, of which 16 will enter the Bigg Boss house. The 16 contestants, comprising 13 celebrities and three commoners, will be tested for COVID-19 before being sent inside the house. The set as well as the items inside the house will be sanitised.”
