Salman Khan-hosted TV show "Bigg Boss 8" will be aired from September 21on Colors TV channel at 9 PM with 15 entirely new faces, some of them from erstwhile Bollywood industry actors and actreses with the Bigg Boss opening the show with new tagline: "Bigg Boss 8, sabki lagegi vaat".
The show will have 15 contestants who will stay in the house for 90 days doing their best to survive the challenging environment. The Colors show which has managed to come up with new techniques to entertain the viewers each season will soon be back with yet another season.
Though the official list of 15 participants will be known on the opening show, there are some big and interesting names making rounds such as Karan Kundra, Ruslaan Mumtaaz, Rashmi Desai, Tina Dutta, Karishma Tanna, Nausheen Ali Sardar, Sangeeta Ghosh, Gauarav Chopraa Narayani Shastri, Amisha Patel, Alok Nath, Sherlyn Chopra, Lulia Vantur, among others.
"When you are watching Salman, do not expect subdued humor instead be prepared for witty taunts and heavy doses of entertainment," said Colors TV on its website. "It’s very evident that ‘Bigg Boss’, as a brand is now synonymous with Salman Khan… If you take a look at the entire journey through the years, you will notice that Salman Khan has made a mark for himself. He has raised the bar season by season – in terms of his hosting style, his new ‘one liners’, his stage presence and his chemistry with the inmates. Salman has brought a lot of credibility to the show. There’s no doubt in saying that majority of the audience wait for his weekend episodes."
Salman Khan was hosting the show "Bigg Bos" since Season 4 and his presence was visible and effective even in Season 5, though Sanjay Dutt was there. The last season 7 was classy, watchable and had a feel good factor, said the post on its website. The last season was full of drama, fights – but, nothing became too ugly.
"Though things landed flat on the face when Salman took a stand on Tanishaa," it said he was doing his job as a host. "If somebody who has already been abusing you for long, drops really dirty things on your head – and doesn’t stop at that, a reaction is what is least expected and Salman Khan stood up for what was wrong. Good, bad or otherwise is a call everyone has. The social stage went abuzz blaming Salman Khan of being biased, but the kind of person he is, he believes in brushing off such things," it said.
It further said, "At times he is harsh, at times loving. Whenever needed he tells them on their faces how bad they looked when they did something seriously wrong. He also appreciates the ones who deserve it. That is the real Salman Khan for you. If a contestant with an intention to kill other contestant grabs his neck – somebody definitely has to yell at the misbehaving one, right?"
