MUMBAI: Colors TV is all set to launch its flagship show Bigg Boss on 16 September this year. Hosted by Salman Khan, this show will air on weekdays at 9 pm. Bigg Boss 12 will replace Dev 2 and Dance Deewane on Colors. As per sources, Salman will shoot for the promo in the first week of August.
This reality show will once again have a mix of celebrities and commoners as contestants. While the audition to rope in commoners is underway, the makers are having meetings with popular celebrities. The twelfth season could prove to be far more interesting than the previous seasons because not individuals but ‘jodis’ will take part as a unit. The makers have already clarified that not just spouses but parents, siblings, co-workers and even friends would be seen as contestants.
As of now, the tentative contestants list includes, Rithvik Dhanjani and Asha, Srishty Rode and Manish Naggdev, Gurmeet Chaudhary and Debina Bonnerjee and Danny D and Mahika Sharma, Shafaq and Falak Naaz, Dipika Kakar and Shoaib Ibrahim, Siddharth Sagar and Subuhi Joshi, Milind Soman and Ankita Konwar and mother-son duo Vibha and Puru Chibber.
Bigg Boss, an Indian version of a Dutch reality show Big Brother has successfully completed 11 seasons. The first season of the show was hosted by Arshad Warsi, followed by Shilpa Shetty and Amitabh Bachchan in the second and third editions respectively. From fourth season till now Salman Khan has been hosting the show and while every year, there’s a speculation that Salman might not host Bigg Boss, he comes back with an enhanced paycheck.
