The Bigg Boss Halla Bol Grand Finale is near. Almost all the champions in the house have now become celebs. Let’s dig into the past of these Celebs a little, and see what their life was before entering the Bigg Boss house.
Let’s start with the star of Bigg Boss 8 – Gautam Gulati!
For TV viewers, Gautam Gulati is a known face who they know as Vikram Rathi of Diya Aur Baati Hum. Before Diya Aur Baati Hum, Gulati worked in several serials including Kasamh Se, Tujh Sangh Preet Lagayi Sajna, and Pyaar Kii Ek Kahani.
Gautam Gulati before acting, danced too to the tunes of Shiamak Davar in many of the dancing shows including TV Awards
Besides, he also acted in a short film titled ‘Darpok’ and is the first Indian TV actor to walk on red Carpet of Cannes Film Festival. Gulati was also seen playing the role of angry Devdutta in a Sri Lankan film – Siddhartha – The Buddha.
No wonder, these two films gave Gulati enough encouragement and confidence to go for Aashiqui 2’s audition. Though he couldn’t get the role then, it seems luck is in his favor now. The reason? Well, because this year, Gulati will be seen as Zaheer Khan in M.S. Dhoni’s biopic.
RJ Pritam Pyaare
Pritam Pyaare has nothing much other than the fact that he is a RJ of Red FM 93.5 who does Gyaarah se do Bhabhi ka Show and entertains all the Bhabhis of Mumbai in his flirtatious tone.
All Ekta Kapoor serial lovers know Karishma Tanna very well, after all she played a sweet role in TV’s longest running show – Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi. Remember Indu (Indira Virani) of KSBKBT?
Next, she was seen in yet another Balaji serial – Kkusum. She was also the elder Tina of Des Mai Nikla Hoga Chand and did several other serials including Bal Veer where she essayed the role of a fairy.
Earlier in her struggling days, Karishma did various ads including an underwear ad for Rupa Frontline. Her other ad endorsements include Nirma, StayFree and Lifebuoy.
In 2011, Karishma did a bold act in Mikey McCleary’s remix music video where she acts as a seductress and is even seen wearing just two piece. This was the remix of 1960 hit song – Khoya Khoya Chand.
In 2013, Karishma got a role in Grand Masti, a sequel of the hit movie Masti. The same year, she also made her own place in The Times ’50 Most Desirable Women’. In February 2014, Tanna also went topless for FHM Magazine, the same Magazine which made Veena Malik famous!
Grand Masti wasn’t her first film though. Her first film was Dosti where she played the role of Bobby Deol’s sister. This year she will be seen in another film – Tina and Lolo with Sunny Leone.
She was often addressed as Bappa Lahiri’s girlfriend when she was dating him. Earlier she was linked to model Hanif Hilal. Recently, she admitted that she was dating Rushabh Choksi, but post her romantic smooch with Upen, it seems that Rushabh is almost her ex.
The Wild Card Entrant – Ali Quil Mirza
From Mountain Dew ad to Travera, Ali Quli Mirza did ads before joining Bigg Boss. A Dubai based singer, he has several music albums to his credit. We might have missed his face, but he acted in many films including Jail, New York, and Roar: Tigers of the Sundarbans. Next, you’ll see him in Kabir Khan’s upcoming movie!
Well, Dimpy shot to fame overnight after she participated a reality show – Rahul Dulhaniya Le Jayenge, post which she married Rahul Mahajan. The duo was even seen in Nach Baliye as a couple. All is not well between them, and the two are even heading for a divorce. No wonder, after watching Rahul Mahajan in the ongoing Bigg Boss house, nobody would want him as a partner.
Upen Patel has got a hot body and nobody can deny the fact that he looked amazing when he appeared on the editorials and covers of several magazines including Stardust, Men’s Health, GQ, Cosmopolitan, Elle, L’Officiel, Seventeen, Grazia, and Man’s World.
Karishma Tanna should consider herself as lucky – No wonder, Upen, the London Ka Chorra was judged as ‘Model of the Year’ at the Asia Fashion Award for 4 consecutive years. Not to forget, Upen was even in the ‘Top 10 Sexiest Men in Asia’ for 5 years back to back. He was also awarded by MTV for being the most stylish person for two years.
Besides, he was also ‘that NRI boyfriend of Amrita Arora’ for college girls who went gaga over his body and physique in various photo shoots and music videos (He did DJ Suketu’s Kya Khoob Lati Ho), until he entered Bollywood and became Katrina Kaif’s douchebag in Ranbir Starrer Ajab Prem Ki Gaaab Kahani.
Upen was dating Shamita Singha and the two have some really steamy photos on the Internet. Apparently, they called it off due to compatibilty issues. It seems Upen threw a glass of wine on Shamita. Later, when Upen did a photo shoot with Deepika Padukone (who was only a model back then), they were rumoured to be dating. Upen and Deepika neither accepted nor denied about this rumoured relationship
