The fifth season of TV reality show ‘Bigg Boss’ promises to get bigger and better with tons of drama and manipulation, having changed its house location to Karjat, besides having two star hosts — Salman and Sanjay — who will be welcoming 14 new inmates including probables like boxer Mike Tyson and pop singer Shakira.
The show sees celebrity contestants stay 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 time, the location of Bigg Boss house has beenshifted to Karjat from Lonavala. Interior designer ShayamBhatia has designed the 9,000 square feet house.
This year there are two separate bedrooms as against the single bedroom last time where all 14 housemates stayed. The bedrooms have been done in shades of green and fuchsia with a hint of white, brown and yellow. The confession room varies with a shade of royal green and the jail concept is back and black.
The beautifully designed open kitchen is connected to a dining room that extends to the garden area. The outdoor spot consists of a pool, the activity area, gymnasium and the kitchen sink.
This season there will be over 55 cameras following every move of the contestants 24×7.
Like last year there will be a special bedroom for the Head-of-House who will get special privileges.
Also, the show will also see two hosts for the first time –Bollywood stars Salman Khan and Sanjay Dutt. Salman, who hosted the fourth season, is the only celebrity who will be repeating the feat for the second time.
Fourteen handpicked strangers, locked in the house for about three months will have to perform all the household chores right from cleaning to cooking to tasks.
The names that are doing the rounds include – former world heavyweight boxing champion Mike Tyson, Colombian singer and dancer Shakira, former cricketer Navjot Singh Sidhu, Nihita Biswas (wife of convicted murderer Charles Sobhraj) Mexican actress Barbara Mori, former South African cricketer Jonty Rhodes, pop icon Lady Gaga, British singer- rapper Jay Sean, stand-up comedian Sudesh Lehri, JaspalBhatti, Shekhar Suman’s actor son Adhyayan, TV actors Parul Chauhan (of ‘Bidaai’ fame), Karan Singh Grover (of ‘Dil Mill Gayye’) and Amar Upadhyay.
