Every year, Salman Khan-hosted reality show Bigg Boss draws the eye from the season’s new promo. Various media reports also predict, assume or report different names of popular, controversial celebrities for the show. Likewise, there is a director’s name that is widely discussed and reported as one of the contestants in Bigg Boss 16.
According to News18’s report, creators are trying to get Heyy Babyy and Housefull director Sajid Khan on board for the upcoming season. The report goes on to say that creators plan to spice up the concept by bringing together some unusual people, and Khan could be a valuable addition to the season.

If Sajid makes it as one of the last contestants, we can expect him to open up and discuss the MeToo allegations against him on the show. In 2018, actress Saloni Chopra and a journalist accused Sajid Khan of harassing them. Even Ungli actress Rachel White has accused the filmmaker of sexual misconduct and shared her ordeal on Twitter. Rachel commented on Saloni’s tweet, “I believe you @redheadchopra..” and then shared what she had to go through in a series of tweets.
After debacles such as Himmatwala and Humshakals, Sajid Khan would make his comeback with Housefull 4. However, due to the allegations, Sajid was asked to leave the project and director duo Sajid-Farhad took over the film.
Now Sajid is ready to mark his return to movies with the upcoming comedy film 100%. The film features an ensemble cast including John Abraham, Ritesh Deshmukh, Shehnaaz Gill and Nora Fatehi. Other names that could be part of the Bigg Boss 16 are reportedly Karan Patel, Faisal Khan and Munawar Faruqui. Even social media sensations Just Sul and Abdu Rozik can be part of the show. Bigg Boss 16 will premiere on October 1.
