Finger crunching, nail biting, masaaledaar show – Bigg Boss is back on TV. Always in the headlines due to the controversies it courts, the show will be in its eighth season and will be hosted once again by the Dabangg – Salman Khan. The show will be premiered tonight on Colors TV.
So, what should one expect from this season?
While last year, the show’s theme was ‘Heaven and Hell’, this year, going by the promos, the producers seem to have aimed for the skies.
The house for the eighth season is located in Lonavla (as usual) and has been, reportedly, designed to resemble a jumbo aircraft. With the interior of an airplane, the house is also said to have a waiting lounge and separate sections for Business and Economy classes.
The way Salman Khan repeatedly says in the promos “Bajaa Doonga”, goes to say the levels of hardships the contestants might have to face once they enter the house.
As far as the contestants are concerned, the makers have chosen the perfect mix comprising of personalities from TV, films, social arena and sports. Probables include Upen Patel, Minissha Lamba, Deepshikha Nagpal, Ajit Chandila, VJ Bani, Sushant Singh, Puneet Issar among others.
According to reports, the ad rates for the show have also been hiked as confirmed by the CEO, Raj Nayak. It clearly speaks volumes about the enormity of the show’s premise this year.
The last year was a safe bet as far as the moolah is considered, but it also created ripples across the channel’s camaraderie with Salman Khan, as he was accused of biasness. This year, since Salman is hosting the show the again, it needs to be seen how the superstar will tackle the backlash, if he begets again.
All in all, like every year, Bigg Boss claims to be an interesting watch. It remains to be seen if it makes profits for the channel which has bet big on its prized project, or fails like this year’s Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa as far as the TVTs go.
But till the time, the decisions are taken, the TVTs are set, lets enjoy the hulla-bulloo over cups and saucers and garments and over almost anything!
Its time for some fun!
Its time for Bigg Boss! Can’t wait for season 8!!!
