The contestants, who will compete in the Bigg Boss house, are yet to be announced. Bigg Boss 14 is likely to have a mix of celebrities and commoners this time around. According to The Indian Express, "Once the contestants come on board, they would have to be in quarantine for a given period before entering the Bigg Boss house. With a lot more medical tests and insurance involved, the makers have already started the process.”

After the release of the first look promo, several media reports had suggested Bigg Boss will focus on activities inspired by the coronavirus lockdown.

Sidharth Shukla, best known for TV shows Balika Vadhu and Dil Se Dil Tak, had won the thirteenth season of Bigg Boss. He beat the finalists Asim Riaz, Shehnaaz Gill (Sana), Rashami Desai, Aarti Singh and Paras Chhabra.
