The 24-year-old South Indian actress, Nikki Tamboli, who created quite a stir with her amusing stage banter with host Salman Khan and co-contestant Eijaz Khan is not leaving any stone unturned to get the much-needed attention inside the Bigg Boss house.

Right from talking about co-contestant Rahul Vaidya's alleged engagement to getting into a war of words with Jasmin Bhasin, Nikki has already started getting embroiled in controversies. 


Tamboli originally hails from the Maharashtrian city, Aurangabad. Though the actress joined the glamour world as a model, she soon managed to grab her first Telugu movie, Chikati Gadhilo Chithakkotudu in 2019. So far, the southern siren has done films like Kanchana 3, Thippara Meesam, and Chikati Gadhilo Chithakkotudu.

However, what grabbed everyone's attention is her near-imitation of the past contestant, Shehnaz Gill, who earned a separate fan base with her histrionics.

However, it is her attempt to have close interaction with Sidharth Shukla that seemed to have irked Sidnaaz fans. Though the actress has claimed to be single, she is said to be dating a Mumbai-based DJ who goes by the name of Rohit Gida according to several reports. 

What now remains to be seen is if Nikki will be able to play her game while keeping the entertainment quotient intact and, if at all, she gets to witness the meteoric rise like that of Shehnaz Gill.
