"Initially, we planned to start airing the show in October but now we are launching it in September and a few more contestants are being signed on. This includes Minissha Lamba and Maryam Zakaria, who will up the glamour quotient of the show. Talks are also on with Shivaji Satam and Kumar Vishwas. The opening episode will be shot at Karjat, while the rest of the show may be shot in Lonavala," a source said.

Meanwhile, sources say that TV shows 'Rang Rasiya' and 'Beintehaa' might go off air.

"'Rang Rasiya' has not been getting good TRPs and it has aroused concern among the show's makers. It may make way for 'Bigg Boss 8'. 'Beintehaa' may go off air too, but since it is doing well so far, the channel might push it ahead to a late-night slot. The final call will be taken in the coming days," a source said.

Maryam Zakaria and the channel's spokesperson remained unavailable for comment. Deepak Dhar, MD, Endemol India, said, "I cannot comment on speculative stories."

Minissha Lamba replied, "No, this is not true."
