Indian reality show Bigg Boss will be back with its next season in September and as per sources. Bollywood actor Salman Khan will also return to host the show, reported The Indian Express.
The makers of Bigg Boss 14, which will be shot in Filmcity, will play around with the theme extensively this time around, given that contestants have always experienced a lockdown-like situation in the show.
The team has recently signed the contract with Khan and talks are already in process with television actors Nia Sharma, Vivian Dsena, Jasmin Bhasin, Alisha Panwar, Shekhar Suman’s son Adhyayan Suman and MTV's Aarushi Dutta. The eight-episode reality show will also feature contestants from previous seasons.
“The season will have a mix of celebrities and semi-known faces. Once they come on board, they would have to be in quarantine for a given period before entering the Bigg Boss house. With a lot more medical tests and insurance involved, the makers have already started the process,” the outlet quoted a source as saying.
Bigg Boss 14 will go on air after Khatron Ke Khiladi: Special Edition will wrap up. Whereas Colors’ reality show Dance Deewane has been pushed to the next year for now.
The season will be Khan’s eleventh stint with Bigg Boss ever since he joined the show in 2010. Last year, during the launch of its season 13, the Bharat actor said, “Every year I feel like moving on and that it’s enough now. It’s been so long, it’s my tenth year. Sometimes it’s been a damn good journey. But a couple of contestants sometimes mess things up. More than anything the sad part is that they mess up their lives. But so far, everytime we think that we are pushing it too much, or it’s not going to work, the next season happens again. The format has worked for Colors and all of us or else, it wouldn’t have been still around.”
Bigg Boss 13 was launched on September 29 last year. Considered the most successful season, it wrapped up on February 15, with Sidharth Shukla taking home the winner’s trophy. Apart from Shukla, Shehnaaz Gill and Asim Riaz went on to gain massive popularity through the show.
