Mumbai: Most popular reality show Bigg Boss 12 premiere is just a few weeks away, and fans can’t keep calm. The super-hit reality show hosted by Bollywood superstar Salman Khan will be back on Indian television in probably the next couple of weeks.
Bigg Boss 12 will launch in Goa instead of Lonavala and press invitations have been sent. “Meet you in Goa,” read the invites. The show is launched in Lonavala where the guests are introduced and directly enter the Bigg Boss house. So before we inch any closer to the new season, here is a list of all the things we have learned, heard or seen about the show.
Salman is returning as the cherished host of the show. The actor, who has been seen in all the promos so far, will introduce us to the new contestants and take their case every weekend like always.
In addition to the introduction, fans look forward to host Salman Khan’s performance and the return of some of their previous contestants. The new participants also perform for the audience before stepping inside to meet their “family” for the coming few months.
Big bunch of celebrities and common people will be welcomed into the house. A probable list of contestants includes actor Dipika Kakar and her husband Shoaib Ibrahim, Gurmeet Choudhary and wife Debina Bonnerjee, MTV Splitsvilla season 7 winner Scarlett M Rose, internet star Pammi Aunty’s Ssumier S Pasricha and Sadda Haq’s Param Singh.
Actor Karanvir Bohra says he too was approached for the show. “Yes, I have been approached for the show. I think I have been the only actor who has been constantly approached since season 1. I feel privileged to be approached by them, but this time also I am not doing the show,” the actor told Indiaforums.com.
Milind Soman had dismissed rumours that he and wife Ankita Konwar will be part of celeb jodis who will enter the Bigg Boss 12 house.
The theme for Bigg Boss 12 is ‘vichitra jodis’. The jodis could be married couples, relatives, colleagues, or even neighbours. According to a report, there will be 21 contestants in the new season. This time too, the jodis will be equally divided among celebs and commoners. Salman will divide the contestants into jodis on the day of the launch.
To introduce the season, Colors has released a few quirky promos on Twitter and YouTube. In one, Salman is seen as a teacher, in another, a regular employee at any desi daftar ever.
The new season of Bigg Boss premieres is expected to be on 16 September.
