Promos have been shot, Salman Khan has rolled up his sleeves and Bigg Boss 9 is all set to pave its way again in your favorite prime-time 9-10 PM slot! Last week, we spilled the beans on tentative list of Bigg Boss 9 contestants and here we are with some more details on another most-awaited season of Bigg Boss! Apart from Salman Khan hosting it, this season looks promising and very different from all its previous seasons. Here are additional details on the 9th season which will feed your curiosity like never before.
1. Salman will be back in action as a host, for the SIXTH time!
Bigg Boss has been hosted by a couple of Bollywood stars including Arshad Warsi, Amitabh Bachchan, Shilpa Shetty but it was since its fourth season that Salman Khan took over as a host. Since Salman came over-board to host, TRP’s have soared high! Salman is all set to return to the Bigg Boss stage, for the sixth time.
2. Just four days to Bigg Boss 9’s first promo!
Salman has already finished shooting multiple promos for Bigg Boss. First promo will be out on September 10. According to a source, “Last year, the team started the show around September 20. This year, there’s a slight delay because the channel has to wrap up Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa and Salman was occupied with Bajrangi Bhaijaan‘s release and finishing the shooting for Prem Ratan Dhan Payo. But the first promo will be on air in less than a week now.” So yes! JUST 4 more days! How excited are we?
3. Bigg Boss 9 might be hugely inspired from the 16th season of Big Brother!
The logo of Bigg Boss 9 was out recently and it looks like a big scanner this time. Bigg Boss’ watchful eye has been converted to a bigger scanner. The logo this time resembles a lot with the sixteenth season of the British reality television series Big Brother hosted by Emma Willis. 16th season of Big Brother had the theme Timebomb and it revolved around the concept of time, tasks, secret missions and twists. Whether the plot and theme will be exactly the same, time will tell.
4. According to sources, the theme will revolve around the concept of ‘Navrang’ or Nine moods of well being
Navras, which means nine colors depicting nine moods or nine rasas of mental being might just be this year’s theme. According to a news website, this has been finalised as this year’s final theme. Even the interiors of the Bigg Boss house has been done keeping in mind this theme.
4. And the final contestants are…
We gave you a list of contestants who were approached for the show last week. However, this year we’ll have an interesting mix of people. Even though Radhe Maa and MSG actor Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh Insaan have turned down the offer, actors like Gaurav Gera, Mahi Vij, Parth Samthaan, Rashami Desai, Asha Negi, Sana Saeed and VJ Bani have given a thumbs up to participate in the show.
There is no official statement from Channel’s side about the final participants but we know that like every year, this year too there would be a few Bollywood stars who could never make it big and some failed sportsmen, models, a foreign import and maybe a politician!
5. AND, the final air date is…
An insider has revealed that, “The show begins airing from October 11. Like every year, the opening will be a grand spectacle of more than two and half hours”. The show will run for more than three months and show’s finale will take place in January 2016.
