In the promo, Salman Khan appeared to be taking a roll-call of a class full of ‘unruly kids’ – an electrician, a rapper, twin sisters, a saas-bahu jodi among others.

Keeping in with the theme of the show, ‘vichitra jodis’, the contestants will enter the Bigg Boss house in pairs.

“This time, the series is set to redefine the concept of awesome twosome with its theme ‘vichitra jodis’. Usually, the word ‘jodi’ is synonymous with a husband-wife, boyfriend-girlfriend, etc. But the makers have extended it to saas-bahu, boss-employee, mama-bhanja and others. So, contestants will enter the house with another member who is known to them,” a source from the team revealed to DNA.

Talking about the promo, he said, “Salman has never played a teacher on screen before.”

“Salman will be seen as a babu working in a government office, discussing the pros and cons of the job. This will be followed by him dressed as a village sutradhar, clad in a kurta pyjama. He won’t have any jodidaar with him in the sneak-peek, but will be the task master for all the contestants,” the source added.

Bigg Boss Season 12 will be aired on Colors TV on 16 September 2018.
