The most controversial and intriguing reality show on Indian television, Bigg Boss, from the stables of Endemol India and Colors, is set to hit bedrooms on 21 September at 9 pm.
This year anticipation levels are pretty high. First of all, after all the rife speculations, the one and only Salman Khan continues to host the series.
Media did report about Shah Rukh Khan replacing the Bhai of Bollywood as the anchor this season, but then, Bigg Boss without Sallu bhai is unimaginable. Somehow there is an uncanny seamless blending of the show’s format and Salman’s persona.
Secondly, this year too list of inmates promises to be engaging. Lot of names are being tossed in the air but nothing can be confirmed at the moment. Our sources suggest that the creative team at Endemol and Colors are leaking contestant names in the media and mapping down the responses received (by each contestant), pertaining to reader or viewer engagement.
But we are sure things must be at its final stage in terms of fixing the blocks of conceptualization and execution.
Next, this year the promos show Salman as a pilot (oh, he does look hot in a pilot uniform…anyone would love to be his ride), and theme is that of aviation.
Some speculated that this time the setting can be somewhere abroad and not in neighboring Lonavla. Reason? To cut down all the tamasha that stems from the proximity to the venue which the relatives of the contestants enjoy and at times they even go on to intervene in the proceedings. We all remember the ugly Gauahar Khan and Armaan Kohli incident in season 7.
Moving on, some also spoke about the set being designed as an aeroplane and apparently pictures of the same was also published by certain section of the media. But as per our sources, the set is not designed like an aeroplane and the pictures published in most probability were fake.
Whatever be it…all queries will be answered during the press launch of the show which is scheduled sometime next week.
But will the indomitable KRK once again play a spoiltsport and reveal the names of contestants before the show goes on air? Chances are high, we say.
Well, we will keep a close eye on all the happenings, both in and out of the house, in Bigg Boss.
Keep logging in. For if you don’t, you will miss the plot. Cheers.
