'Bigg Boss' is back with yet another season and while Season 12 is hosted by Salman Khan, the theme of this reality TV show has been tweaked. Every year the show introduces a new twist and this time it is called 'Vichitra Jodi', which means it will showcase couples in the house.
According to media reports, the makers of 'Bigg Boss' initially wanted celebrity jodis in the house, however the amount charged by them was reportedly humongous which then led to a change in plans last minute.
The 12th season of Bigg Boss was launched by Salman Khan in Goa on Tuesday, September 4, where he introduced comedian Bharti Singh and her husband Harsh Limbachiyaa as the first contestants. A number of single celebrities will be paired with others as a part of the show. As per reports, former Indian cricketer Shreesanth will also be a part of Salman Khan's show.
After the first jodi of the season was revealed, fans reportedly went berserk guessing the others pairs who will feature in the show. Some names like Television Dipika Kakar, who is best known for her role in 'Sasural Simar Ka', is reportedly going to be part of this year's 'Bigg Boss' and reports suggest that the actress has been offered Rs. 14 lakh per week which is double the money offered to Hina Khan who featured in the last season of 'Bigg Boss'.
A-list celebrities that are expected this season include Srishty Rode, Devoleena Bhattacharjee, Ridhima Pandit, Shaleen Bhanot, and Neha Pendse among others. Reports suggest that former Indian cricketer Sreesanth will be a part of the reality show. Sreesanth had a controversial career in cricket and has a life ban for his supposed involvement in spot-fixing as a part of the Rajasthan Royals team in the IPL 2008. The former cricketer was last seen in action in 2011.
Apart from sports, Sreesanth has made headlines for his Bollywood stint in 'Axar 2' and Malayalam movie 'Team 5'. In addition to this, Sreesanth also previously participated in other reality shows namely 'Khatron Ke Khiladi' and 'Jhalak Dikhla Jaa' and is currently working on his upcoming movie titled 'Kempegowda 2'. Sreesanth has also been the talk of the town for his chiselled body which is sure to set the temperatures soaring.
