Goa: The most watched Indian television reality show Bigg Boss hosted by Salman Khan has already created a buzz with its Season 12 promos. Bigg Boss gets launched out of Lonavala every year but, the makers of the show and the team of Colors TV have launched the Season 12 in Goa on Tuesday.
According to sources, the makers chose Goa for the location of Bigg Boss 12 as Salman Khan would be shooting for Bharat there, and it will be easier for him to juggle between his film and the reality show.
Keeping in mind the concept of this year’s season ‘Vichitra jodi’, the media was asked to dress colorful and sunny.
Reportedly, 21 contestants have been finalised for Season 12. While it was earlier believed that celebs and commoners will enter as jodi, new reports suggest none of the celebrities will enter in pairs.
In all, five commoner pairs, five solo commoners, and six solo celebs will participate. Salman Khan will pair the single contestants on the day of Bigg Boss 12 premiere.
Salman on being asked about who makes the best ‘Vichitra jodi’ with him, said, “Sanjay Dutt and me, and we hosted a Bigg Boss season together. So, he is the best choice for me. I will also choose Shah Rukh Khan. Not many know that he was the original choice to host Bigg Boss. He had a shoulder injury so it came to me. I thank him for this.”
On being questioned if he would work with Shah Rukh Khan, Salman said, “I will work with him if we get a good script. He was kind enough to appear in Tubelight. And I will also be seen in his upcoming Zero.”
Colors TV has flooded their Twitter feed with many videos and photographs of Salman Khan from the launch event. Salman Khan also posted a photo from the launch event in his twitter account.
