The much awaited Salman Khan hosted Bigg Boss season 15 will be launched on the OTT platform Voot in August 2021. Way back in 2006, when the reality show Bigg Boss started airing on Colors, frankly no one even expected the show to garner such unprecedented accolades from the audiences but it has over the years gained in strength a lot
The biggest difference that we are going to witness this year in the Bigg Boss house is that the channel has decided to do away with the participation of the commoner inside the house, and hence it will be interesting to watch how celebrities gel around each other. Talking about it Salman has gone on record that “This whole thing of commoner and celebrity — I don’t think there is much of a difference between them. Commoner and celebrity are just terms. Everybody is a commoner and everybody is a celebrity. Once they enter the house and you watch them on TV, they become a celebrity. This time I think they have gone for all celebrities, who are very big on television, across various industries. So, it is a nice blend of a lot of different people.”
