Mumbai, Sep 19 (IANS) Since the announcement about “Bigg Boss” coming back on the small screen with a new ‘double trouble’ season, several names have cropped as rumoured contestants.
Superstar and the host of the popular reality TV show Salman Khan says the guessing game has always been a ‘unique’ aspect of the show, adding that first “everyone wants to know who is going into the house” and when it goes on air the interest shifts to eliminations.
And the “Dabangg” star is in no mood to quash the speculations around the upcoming season “Bigg Boss Nau”.
“One of the unique things about ‘Bigg Boss’ is that every year, before the season starts everyone wants to know who is going into the house. And once the season starts, everyone wants to know who is leaving the house. As of now, for season nine, all I can confirm is that I am hosting the show. So ‘Bigg Boss’ season nine…is mine,” Salman said in a statement.
A bevy of actors like Prachi Desai, Uday Chopra and Gaurav Gera along with a Lebanese-American porn star Mia Khalifa have shot down rumours about being a part of the upcoming ninth season of the reality show, which is aired on Colors channel.
The show, which is an Indian version of internationally acclaimed reality format “Celebrity Big Brother”, involves celebrity contestants locked inside a purpose-built house for three months under constant camera surveillance and with no luxury and limited amenities of life. And it has gained popularity for its brick bats and controversies.
Meanwhile, season 9 has said to have increased its magnitude to ‘grander than usual’ settings. So, the focus is not only on ‘double trouble’, but ‘double opulence’ in the season as well.
“‘Bigg Boss Nau’ promo will show Salman in a magnificent setting. In one of the clips, the actor will stand before luxurious Mercedes SLK 350 and in another promo Salman can be seen seating in front of a larger than life ten feet chandelier,” a source said.
