Bigg Boss Season 6, Biggest Reality Show of Indian Television, list of bigg boss 6 contestant and recent updates

Updated on December 2, 2012

Sixth season of the much awaited reality show of Indian television “Bigg Boss” has kicked off with a big bang. Bollywood superstar Salmaan “Dabbang” Khan is once again roped in by the producers to host the show, who was very busy last year with his film assignments and could only co-host few episodes of the show with his best buddy Sanjay Dutt. This year show producers didn’t leave a single stone unturned and signed him earlier for a bigger pay packet. Now salmaan khan has become the second highest paid actor (first being Mr. Bacchan) of Indian television industry who is signed for a whopping Rs. 4 crore per episode by the color TV channel.

The state of art big boss house for inmates is constructed at Lonavala which is getting bigger and better with every new season. The big boss house is designed by famous bollywood art director Shibu Cyril. This year the show has been slotted for prime time show (9.00 pm), unlike last year when producers of the show had to re-schedule to show to 11.00 pm timing after the entry of adult film industry diva Sunny Leone in bigg boss house. To reach to wider audience and to create more fan base, this year color TV channel has decided to keep their show watchable to more family audience by changing their tagline to “Alag Che” (Its different). Apart from this they also introduced Gandhi’s three monkeys concept in Bigg Boss House which will keep reminding the inmates about philosophy of life from three monkeys of mahatma i.e. see no evil, hear no evil and speak no evil.
