Bigg Boss 8: Salman Khan takes selfies, forms secret societies on the opening night of the show
Selfies, item numbers, stand up comedy. The opening episode of ‘Bigg Boss 8’ was a complete entertainer. Host Salman Khan opened the show with contestants Karishma Tanna and Sonali Raut. A veteran on the Bigg Boss stage by now, Khan smoothly operated the show introducing 15 contestants turn by turn.
The contestants were then transferred to the Bigg Boss house, which looks like a crash site with an aircraft as a part of the house this season. The set this year has infused interiors of an airline within the set and has two sections, Business and Economy class.
Some of the inmates from previous season of the reality show also made an appearance in the pilot episode of ‘Bigg Boss 8’. While Salman’s favourite Elli Evram introduced actor Upen Patel, Armaan Kohli introduced Arya Babbar on the show.
Gutthi aka Sunil Grover performed a small comic act with model Diandra Soares who is one of the inmates this year. Actors Minissha Lamba, Puneet Issar, Karishma Tanna and Deepshikha Nagpal are part of the show as well.
Dressed as a pilot, Salman kept all the introductions crisp and welcomed each of the inmates to the house. He compared Siberian model Natasa Stankovic to Elli and obliged the model with a selfie minutes before she entered the house. Perhaps to raise a few eyebrows right in the beginning of the show, Arya Babbar stated he would miss “sex and pizza the most” while staying inside the house.
The Indian adaptation of international show ‘Celebrity Big Brother’, the show features celebrities from different fields congregating under one roof, without any frills or connect with the outside world, and under constant prying of multiple cameras for three months. It features a lot of emotional highs and lows.
Salman Khan, 48, returns as the host for ‘Bigg Boss’ season eight, which will premiered on September 21 on Colors.
