Bigg Boss is back! The television show hosted by Salman Khan, which courts controversies every season for one reason or the other, is one of the most popular reality shows and is going to be aired from September 16.
With just a month left for the premiere, the show has started making headlines about the hot scoops on contestants entering the house that is full of unpredictable people doing adventurous things. In the past seasons, we have seen people falling in love, kicking each other, spilling food over each other and what not.
While we are still dealing with last season’s enemies Hina Khan and Shilpa Shinde’s after effects controversies, here are some important points for Season 12.
Sources close to the show suggest that there is going to be a new format for Season 12. There will be a total of 21 contestants this time, and there will be six real-life ‘jodis’ among them. By jodis, however, the makers don’t necessarily mean a couple. They can be a mother-in-law and a daughter-in-law, or even siblings. Out of these six jodis, three will be celebrity jodis and the other three will be from among the commoners. As far as the rest of the nine contestants are concerned, six will be paired to make three jodis by host Salman Khan, while the three individuals will rule the house with special powers for a few days, as per the show’s format.
Here is the tentative contestant list of the participants. Check them out.
