After several seasons highlighting fights and scandals involving celebrities in reality show Bigg Boss, the new version will be ‘cleaner and friendlier’, host Salman Khan has promised.
The controversial reality show Bigg Boss is all set to come back with new twists and turns for its sixth season this year, and will not only house celebrities, but will be open for the common man also, an official release issued said.
Bigg Boss sees celebrity contestants staying in a house for about three months, cut off from the outside world. They are overseen by a “mysterious person” known as ‘Bigg Boss’.
This season, the focus will not be on stars and their tantrums, it is going to be about the common man and his values, morals and faith, the release said.
Reports suggest that the change in format was formalised at the behest of Salman Khan, after a spate of controversies in the earlier seasons of the show which housed adult film star Sunny Leone, Raja Choudhary (accused of beating his wife), dreaded dacoit Seema Parihar and starlet Dolly Bindra.
People can send SMS or log on to the website of Colors channel and they would be selected through a contest to appear on Bigg Boss 6, the release said.
The show is likely to go on air in October.
