Bigg Boss to launch latest version

“After the tremendous success of Bigg Boss last year, we want to take it to even higher levels this year — in ratings, in novelty and in appeal. With Bachchan on board, we strongly believe that Bigg Boss this year has all the ingredients to surpass its last year’s popularity,” Kamat said in a press release.

Amitabh, 66, who created waves in the TV industry as host of the superhit game show Kaun Banega Crorepati, is making a comeback to the small screen after a gap of four years.

His role in Bigg Boss has been defined as that of a ‘Pop Philosopher’, which is a unique concept that will be one of the differentiators of this season.

In this role, Amitabh will bridge the gap between the Bigg Boss participants and the viewers through contextualising events, simplifying emotions as well as analysing developments that happen within the Bigg Boss house.

Talking of his association with the show, Amitabh said: “This is one show that has intrigued me immensely as a viewer — its format, its contestants and the psychological battle within the house. That intrigue, coupled with the unique concept that Colors shared with me for this season, excited me to be a part of Bigg Boss this year.” Bigg Boss is the Indian version of the popular British reality show Big Brother.

It has celebrity contestants locked into a house under the surveillance of multiple cameras for a period of three months without any contact with the outside world.
The show will begin in October.
