it's almost here! We are just 24 hours away from the grand premiere of Bigg Boss 12. Salman Khan, who is returning as the host for the ninth consecutive time will unveil the lineup of contestants, who will be locked inside the camera infested house for a period of over 100 days. The superstar did some unveiling at the press conference of the show, which took place in Goa couple of weeks back. We know that the theme of Bigg Boss 12 is vichitra jodis, so the contestants will enter the house in pairs. Salman introduced the first jodi of Bigg Boss 12 in the form of comedienne Bharti Singh and her husband Haarsh Limbachiyaa.
It was the first time that the makers revealed the contestants at a press conference. That in itself was quite fishy. But you've got to do things differently, right? So we thought this must be a new strategy by the makers. Except, it was all lies. Yep! Turns out Bharti and Haarsh were never meant to enter the Bigg Boss house. It was just a gimmick by the makers to create a buzz, at least that's what a report in Indian Express states.

“Bharti and Haarsh were never supposed to enter the show. It was just a gimmick by the channel to create a buzz. We all know that if you can’t make it, you can always fake it. Bharti and Haarsh were asked to play along at the launch. And they were also paid a handsome amount for the same. Initially, the makers were toying with the idea of having them on the premiere night but they could not come to an agreement. As of now, they will not be around Bigg Boss 12 for some time,” a source was quoted.
Honestly, we are not surprised! But we wonder why did the makers choose this tactic to create a buzz? A show like Bigg Boss has millions of loyal fans. There was no need to lie to the fans to "create a buzz" for a what is called nation's biggest reality show. Agreed, the idea would have been to take advantage of Bharti's fan base, but since she is not entering the house, they too would be disappointed.
There are so many other things that could have been used to create a buzz for Bigg Boss 12, lying (if it all they have) to the fans was definitely not cool. We will know only tomorrow during the Bigg Night of Bigg Boss 12.
