As Bigg Boss entered Season 5 in its new improved â€˜double vaatâ€™ avatar, the Endemol programme on Colors proved once again that Indiaâ€™s most controversial reality show just gets bigger and better with each coming.
With Munnabhai Sanjay Dutt and Dabangg Salman Khan at the helm of hosting affairs, the show witnesses a few alterations this time. For one, the famous multi-colour designer House accommodating the 14 housemates (and around 55 cameras) seems slightly smaller than the earlier more spacious Houses. â€œThis means, the space will be cramped and we can expect more high-voltage drama,â€ analyses Bigg Boss specialist Dale Bhagwagar, who has been the publicist to maximum reality show celebrities like Shilpa Shetty, Ashmit Patel, and Rakhi Sawant.
This year, the â€œfasaad ki jaddâ€ (as the hosts described the â€˜kitchenâ€™), is more centrally located, but with the wash-basins strangely placed outside the House! Another change being, apart from the House Captainâ€™s exclusive room, there are two bedrooms with an odd combination of single and double beds. Thereâ€™s a new transparent â€˜bubble gumâ€™ section in the garden area built specially for private discussions with the House Captain. Plus, a House Jail (yes, you read it right). Above everything else, this yearâ€™s Bigg Boss House has just ONE MALE and THIRTEEN FEMALE HOUSEMATES.
As for the contestants, Shakti Kapoor made a rockstar entry, performing to â€œBachna ae haseeno lo main aa gayaâ€. Indeed! â€œSaat sau filmein kar ke, billi haj ko chali,â€ he quipped as he entered the scandalous House. Aaoo! He was followed by actress and anchor Pooja Bedi, beauty queen Shonali Nagrani, Charles Shobrajâ€™s Nepali wife Nihita Biswas, TV actress and Raja Chaudharyâ€™s girlfriend Shradha Sharma, a super-blunt television gossip girl Mandeep Bevli, the cute and vivacious Raageshwai, beauty pageant winner Vida Samadzai from Afghanistan, Norway-born actress Mahek Chahal, a 6-month pregnant wrestler Sonika Kaliraman Malik, Bollywood hottie Pooja Misrra, Rajasthani Kalbelia dancer Gulabo Sapera, eunuch Laxmi Narayan and television actress Juhi Parmar.
â€œWith so many queens and drama queens in the making, the Bigg Boss house should be on fire in less than a day or two,â€ says the Bigg Boss expert Dale Bhagwagar. â€œIt will be a sexy hi-glam fish-market,â€ he adds. So get set for the â€˜double vaatâ€™.
