Bachchan to play 'pop philosopher' in 'Bigg Boss 3'


"I'm very excited to be part of this show and also for my role as 'Pop Philosopher'. It is unique because I have to decode emotions and comprehend simple philosophies of life," Bachchan said here at a press conference. The 66-year-old star, who is taking the reins of the reality show from actress Shilpa Shetty, will appear on the show twice a week - Friday and Saturday.

He will also lend his voice for a special promotional song for the show. Bachchan's role in the show would be to analyse why people behave in a certain manner in the house and what is going on inside their minds. Also, after a contestant's eviction he will decode their journey in the Bigg Boss house. 'Bigg Boss 3', adapted from the popular English reality show 'Big Brother', will be aired everyday starting October 4 on Colours and will feature 14 celebrity contestants, who will be locked in a house for 85 days under constant surveillance through 35 cameras.

Colours's Chief Executive Officer Rajesh Kamat said that Bachchan's entry has raised the bar of the show. "After having a successful season last year, we wanted to do something more bigger, something which would not only increase our ratings but would also the novelty. It (Bigg Boss 3) will surpass last year's popularity," he said. Bachchan was last seen on the small screen in 2005 as the host of the popular game show 'Kaun Banega Crorepati II', the Indian version of the international hit-series 'Who wants to be a Millionaire?' on Star Plus.
