About Bigg Boss 17
The upcoming season of the popular reality TV show Bigg Boss is anticipated to commence in September-October. Enthusiastic fans eagerly await the announcement of the participants for the next season. However, there have been numerous names circulating online as potential contestants, including Sachin Meena, Seema Haider, Munawar Faruqui, Jiya Shankar, Abhishek Malhan, and Sourav Joshi, as well as Anurag Dobhal, amongst others.
Lodha had previously emphasized that his battle against the creators was “not a matter of financial gain” but instead centered around reclaiming his self-respect.
After his triumph, Lodha appears to be complete to explore new avenues. While not yet officially confirmed, various gossips suggest he will be a prominent contestant on ‘Bigg Boss 17’.

Despite the buzz, there hasn’t been an official report from the show’s creators, and they’re keeping a tight lid on the minutiae to build anticipation.
Lodha’s legal dispute was mainly motivated by his aspiration to regain his sense of self-worth rather than solely pursuing monetary compensation. He disclosed his choice to refuse a provision of media abstinence imposed by the producer while he was working on ‘TMKOC.’
