As Salman Khan’s controversial Bigg Boss 8 kick-starts, the devotees of the show have a lot to watch out for. First reason is, of course, super-host Salman Khan himself. Every year, Salman has been adding his unique charm to the show, setting the stage afire with his quick wit and humour. And going by its riveting promo this year – with Sallu Mian dressed as a pilot (Interestingly, Salman’s dad, Salim Khan, is a trained pilot) – the makers have decided to take the reality show to new heights by roping in even bigger celebrities than last season.
Since the show’s promo went viral there have been intense speculations about the contestants. Says a source close to the production house, “By getting celebs, the channel Color which broadcasts Bigg Boss hopes to attract good TRPs. Keenly involved, Salman is keeping a close eye on the contestants.”
The source adds that actress Mahie Gill has been “approached to participate in the house. Though she’s still contemplating Salman is keen on her as he thinks the actress has an interesting personality that may attract eyeballs.”
Will Mahie take the plunge?
