Continuing his tradition of giving Eidi to his fans on Eid, Salman Khan released the first promo of the fifteenth season of Big Boss and this season is going to be called Big Boss OTT.
In a promo launched on the Voot app and its official social media handles with the caption –
“Arey bhai bhai bhai, ye kya ho raha hai?
Nahi samjhe? Machane loot, aa raha hai BB OTT on Voot
Hoga itna over the top, entertainment chalega non – stop
On a scale of 1 – 10, kitne excited ho aap?
BB OTT, Streaming starts August 8 on Voot.
#BBOtt #BBOttOnVoot #Voot #SalmanKhan @beingsalmankhan @vootselect.”
In the promo we see Salman Khan laughing hysterically on the sofa, rolling on the floor, running around, etc. And then he proceeds to say that this season of Big Boss is going to be so “crazy, so over-the-top” that it’ll get banned on TV.
He also informed that the show will go live from 8th August on the OTT platform Voot only to shift on TV after 6 weeks.
However, he won’t be going to host the OTT leg of the show but confirmed that he’d be back for the TV version. Reports suggest that the makers of the show approached Rohit Shetty and Farah Khan but they both have declined the offer. Sources claim that Big Boss 13 winner Sidharth Shukla and his partner Shehnaaz Gil are also being considered for hosting. Their fans as fans admire them a lot and have also given the couple a nickname- SidNaaz.
Salman informed that the format of this season will be slightly different as it will add a “janta” factor, which will give the common man the power of picking contestants, and deciding their “stay, tasks and exit from the show.”
Salman Khan also said, “The platform will see unparalleled interactivity where the audience will not only get entertained but also participate, engage, give tasks and more.”
The list of this year’s Big Boss contestants is not out as yet but leaks suggest personalities like Arjun Bijlani, Rhea Chakraborty, Neha Marda, Anushka Dandekar, Sanaya Irani, Disha Vakani, Divya Agarwal, Parth Samthaan and Mohsin Khan to be a part of the show this year.
To recall last season was won by TV actress Rubina Dilaik with singer Rahul Vaidya being the first runner-up who is trending on social media nowadays because of his marriage to his ling time girlfriend Disha Parmar.
