Superstar Salman Khan is responsible for creating headlines, and why shouldn’t he be? After all, the king of all reality series, Bigg Boss 16, is just around the corner. The new season is due to begin on October 1, 2022, and we already have all the juice flowing in on social media – everything from the expected celebrity contestants to Bhaijaan’s fee is drawing the viewers. The new season is about to begin.
Bigg Boss, hosted by Bollywood superstar Salman Khan, is one of the most popular reality shows on Indian television.
The original Big Brother reality show from the Netherlands served as the inspiration for the Indian version of the show known as Bigg Boss. It is a collaboration between Viacom18 and Disney Star, and it is produced by Endemol Shine India. After that, the several adaptations of the show have been made accessible to viewers all over the world by means of the OTT platforms Voot and Disney+ Hotstar. The first version of Bigg Boss was shown in Hindi, however the show has since been localized into seven other languages that are common on the Indian subcontinent. These languages are Kannada, Bengali, Tamil, Telugu, and Malayalam.
The contestants, who are referred to as “housemates,” live together in a house that has been erected just for the show and is cut off from the outside world. Housemates compete against one another to be the last one standing and win the cash prize. Voting takes place on a regular basis, typically once per week. Throughout their time spent inside the Big Brother house, competitors are under the watchful eye of live television cameras and are also required to wear personal audio microphones.
Salman Khan has hosted the controversial reality show for the past eleven years and will continue to do so for Bigg Boss 16.
Recent reports claimed that the superstar has hiked his fee for the show’s upcoming season and his massive remuneration left everyone stunned. Dabangg Khan will be paid Rs. 43.75 crores for hosting a single episode of the upcoming season of the show.
The enormous sum of Rs. 1050 crores reportedly offered to Salman Khan for hosting one season went viral, according to reports. This quickly became the topic of conversation. However, the most recent report disproves the claim.
Last year, it was reported that Salman Khan earned Rs 350 crore for hosting Bigg Boss 15. According to the most recent reports, the Kisika Bhai Kiska Jaan actor will earn less this year. However, it is also important to note that neither the show’s producers nor Salman have ever officially discussed the fees.
The scope of the show expands and improves with each passing year, and it is anticipated that the most well-known figures in the entertainment industry will take part in the upcoming season of the show.
As for Bigg Boss 16 contestants, reports indicate that producers have contacted Lock Upp winner Munawar Faruqui, Khatron Ke Khiladi 12’s Faisal Shaikh aka Mr. Faisu, Bhabi Ji Ghar Par Hai’s Shubhangi Atre, Imlie’s Fahmaan Khan, Nusrat Jahan, Flora Saini, and other celebrities. Nonetheless, no official name has yet been announced.
The names of the competitors who are contending for a spot in the most recent season of the show are currently making the rounds in preparation for the start of the program in October. Even though the confirmed list of candidates won’t be made public until a later date, the producers of Bigg Boss 16 will undoubtedly be working hard to ensure that the show is a ratings success.
