MUMBAI: Controversies and criticism is nothing new to the show, on the contrary it survives on it.

Bigg Boss, which will soon air its eighth season, has been a hit since its inception and managed to pull enough viewers every time, thanks to the fights and love affairs between contestants.

The reality show, a premium property from the Colors bouquet, is coming back with a new appeal. The two teasers of the programme have already hit the television screens with the first one aired on Independence Day.

Clearing all the speculations and rumours of Salman Khan opting out of the show, the popularly known bhai has returned as the host for the fifth time. Produced by Endemol, the first 30 second teaser of the series has Khan putting on the uniform of a pilot walking and giving viewers a salute. Soon an aircraft is shown on the screen that flies across the blue sky.

The second teaser, which hit the screen on 21 August, showcases Khan in an office wearing a pilot?s uniform once again but this time he is busy making paper planes. He flies one of his paper planes which, thanks to the computer graphics, goes on to become an original plane as it flies off into the sky.

The highlight of these teasers is that this time around the eye logo of Bigg Boss is different.  It has a futuristic look unlike the previous versions, which were more like a human eye, to match with the theme of the house. The pupil is a turbofan of an aircraft while the borders of the eye have a shiny metallic skin.

Apart from this, another different thing about the show is the presenting sponsor. After five-long years, the channel has got on-board Snapdeal as its new presenting sponsor instead of Vodafone India. It has also roped in Oppo Electronics as the powered by sponsor. According to a media planner, the title sponsorship is pretty high and would be around Rs 20 crore. . ?If you look at the e-commerce space, there is a war going on television and a lot of funding is coming in. E-commerce brands are also willing to pay a premium which the normal brands might not be willing to pay.?

Media planners believe that the show is an established property and enjoys a huge fan following and the market knows it will get the ratings. ?I don?t think one can say that it will be either a hit or a fail. The benchmarks are pretty much set and people who actually like the show keep watching it. Colors comes up with a new theme every season just to keep the interest levels in the show alive,? says Maxus managing partner north and east region Navin Khemka.
