A rising Kollywood actress Shalu Shamu has revealed that Raja Rani fame Alya Manasa will be entering the Bigg Boss house as the 17th contestant.

When asked if she will be the 17th contestant of Bigg Boss, Shalu replied that it's definitely Alya Manasa.

"Since the serial just wrapped up, definitely we can expect Alya Manasa to be the 17th contestant," Shalu revealed.

Alya Manasa or more popularly known as 'Semba' among the TV audience shot to fame after landing the role in the Vijay TV serial Raja Rani. Previously, she participated in the Maanada Mayilaada dance reality show.
