We all know that it doesn’t get bigger on the idiot box than Bigg Boss. So with every season of Bigg Boss they have made sure that they get a super celebrity to host it. With Sony having taken away KBC from Star Plus, Colors had to make sure that they don’t lose out on the show that catapulted their channel to the top of the league then.
One would have thought that with the Big B hosting the show in the previous season, probably Colors would not wish to experiment with the host. But now with Big B coming back to the show that gave him a new lease of success – KBC, Colors had to make sure that they get somebody at least as charismatic for their Bigg Boss. So we heard reports of the Badshah – SRK being roped in to host this year’s season of Bigg Boss.
But now reports have it that SRK is too busy with the shooting of his Ra 1 and post that he will have his hands full with Don 2. Had this happened, we are sure that the TAM ratings of Bigg Boss would have shot through the roof. Now, Colors may not want to risk having a non-celebrity as the host. It could not have gotten better and bigger than SRK hosting the show. But some things are not meant to be probably.
Reports now say that Akshay Kumar has been approached by the channel to host Bigg Boss. As such Akshay’s association with Colors has been very strong and if our readers remember, it was Akshay who got the channel huge publicity and the initial viewership by hosting ‘Khatron Ke Khiladi.’ Thus the channel would not want to lose this association which they almost did by terminating Akshay’s candidature as the host for Fear Factor. Priyanka Chopra or PC who is hosting this year’s Fear Factor is a lot in the news because of her new avatar as the host for Fear Factor.
Colors will be banking on the ‘Khiladi Kumar’ to put up a strong fight with Sony’s KBC. As such Akshay as the host would make the show quite watchable and there would be quite a few viewers who would tune in just to catch their favourite star as the host. But since the show format is such that it is the 13 inmates of the house who are the actual drivers of this show, Colors would do well to choose celebrities who make the show fun to watch. The previous season was actually quite boring in some parts what with many celebrities being so nice and cordial to each other. C’mon guys we are not here to see you canoodling with each other. We want to see some gossip, bitching, fights, arguments, bad mouthing each other and all the masala. Colors..are you listening??? Please don’t come up with another boring and forgettable season of such an interesting show!
