Salman Khan Bigg Boss 15Bigg Boss 15 Premiere Live updates: The show is hosted by Salman Khan.

The much-awaited season Bigg Boss 15 premiered on Saturday at 9:30 pm. Hosted by Salman Khan, the reality show came with a twist. While Jay Bhanushali, Umar Riaz, Tejasswi Prakash, Karan Kundrra, Vidhi Pandya, Donal Bisht, Vishal Kotian, Afsana Khan, Simba Nagpal, Sahil Shroff, Akasa Singh, and Ieshaan Sehgaal were introduced on October 2, a second part of the grand premiere is likely to see Bigg Boss OTT’s Pratik Sehajpal, Nishant Bhat and Shamita Shetty joining on Sunday. Salman will also return with Ranveer Singh on the show.

In Bigg Boss 15, celebrity contestants will have to survive the many ‘sankats’ in a jungle before they can enter the main house. The jungle also hosts ‘vishwa suntree’, the wisdom tree, that will lure and manipulate contestants in its own way. While Rekha voiced the tree in the promos, makers are yet to confirm if she will continue with the show.

Pratik Sehajpal became the first confirmed contestant after he chose the ‘Ticket to BB15’ by walking out of the finale of Bigg Boss OTT. The first and second runner up, Nishant Bhat and Shamita Shetty, respectively, will also get another chance to entertain the audience.

At the press meet which was held at Pench Forest Camp in Madhya Pradesh-Maharashtra border, Salman Khan shared details about the season with the media over a pre-recorded video. Mentioning how the team will be making life difficult for the contestants, the Bollywood star said that it’s going to be the most difficult season.

“Contestants think Bigg Boss is a piece of cake. It’s not. For five months, being worried about their family, if anyone has got covid. These things play on their minds. Some manage to handle, some don’t but everyone has been very strong. The show is not about physical but mental strength. Hats off to every contestant who presents their real personality on the show. Everyone is unique and people have accepted their real selves. And everyone who has been on the show has seen growth on the professional and personal front. They can fight any war,” Salman said.

He also opened about his association with Bigg Boss and mentioned how this has been the ‘only relationship which has lasted this long’. The actor also added that the show has brought permanency in his life.
