MUMBAI: Colors? controversial yet loved reality show Bigg Boss season 9 is all set to hit the Indian television in October to be hosted by Salman Khan yet again. The first promo of Bigg Boss 9 is out and the audience has lapped it up. Within 24 hours, the promo received more than 60,000 views on YouTube.

What's more, Colors has also roped in three major sponsors for the ninth season. Bigg Boss 9 will be presented by SnapDeal, powered by Oppo Mobile India and driven by Maruti Swift. It will be produced by Endemol.

This season, Bigg Boss 9 has the tagline - ?Double Trouble,? which has been hinted at in the promo. While the contestants? antics coupled with Khan?s inimitable hosting style has managed to pack a punch more often than not, this time round Bigg Boss seems to have doubled the fun in its ninth season.

The show?s promo features a couple in the house wearing the same shirt and Salman Khan is seen peeping through the door hole. He then looks into the camera and mouths catchy phrases like ?Double hoga trouble? and ?Bigg Boss nau is going to be wow.?

The promos also hint that this season will be tougher than its predecessors. Bigg Boss 9 is likely to go on air from 11 October, soon afterJhalak Dikhhla Jaa Reloaded wraps up.

While the channel has not yet revealed the time slot for the show, it is pertinent to note that previous seasons have been aired in the 9 pm prime time slot. Colors currently airs Chakravarti Ashoka Samrat at 9 pm and Swaragini at 9:30 pm, which are both raking in good ratings for the broadcaster.

It now remains to be seen how Colors rejigs its programming line-up to pave way for Bigg Boss 9.

It may be recalled that last year, Khan had to leave the show midway because of prior commitment towards work and was replaced by choreographer and filmmaker Farah Khan, who hosted the extended edition of Bigg Boss season 8 - Halla Bol.
