The hit reality show Bigg Boss will definitely be more “Big” this year. The third season of the very popular show will be hosted by Big B himself! What could be bigger than that?
Amitabh Bachchan has confirmed the news that he is indeed going to host the third season of Bigg Boss on Colors. After a gap of 4 years, Amitabh ji is all set to make a “Bigg” comeback to the television. Mr. Bachchan has been closely associated with Star Plus for a long duration. He hosted the first game show in India Kaun Banega Crorepati on Star Plus and gave the channel some of its best TRPs ever. He also gained a lot from the show himself as his sagging filmy career took off once again in a big way. But the association with that channel has now been cut off and the Big Daddy of Indian Entertainment is all geared up to appear on Colors with the most loved reality show.
So what is it that Mr. Bachchan will do in the show? Considering his huge stature in the industry and the way he is revered by the audience, the channel has designed a completely new role for the host. He will do much more than what Shilpa Shetty or Arshad Warsi did on the show. Apart from doing all that, Big B will play a Pop Psychologist to the inmates.
In his own words, “We need to analyse the minds of those on the show and reach out to as many people as possible through it. On eviction day, I will discuss the thought process of that particular contestant. I don’t claim to give gyaan or suggest that I can calm things down. My job is only to analyse why people behave in a certain manner in the house.” Clearly, the channel aims to garner the highest TRPs by adding a “human factor” into the show. Getting Mr. Bachchan to appear in the show is like a coup for the channel. This move ensures that the show will be watched in almost all the homes of India. That’s the charm and reach of Mr. Bachchan!
So is Shilpa fretting and fuming with jealousy? Naah! The lovely lady says, “Amitji will host the next season of BIG BOSS and people want to know how I feel. This piece of news didn’t come as a surprise as I was told before by the Creative head of the channel, and I feel happy that they’ve got him to say yes. I know he will do a fantastic job. I believe that the channel has the right to do what’s best for the show so that’s that. Also I will be shooting the whole of October and November in the UK, so I couldn’t have done it this time, but nevertheless I will miss Big Boss as it has been an integral part of my life and I enjoyed doing it last season.”
Now that we know who’s going to host the show, it is difficult to keep guessing the names of the celebrity contestants. But knowing the format of the show, we can expect to find out only when the show kicks off. “Colors” is planning to telecast the show around December this year. What do you feel about Mr. Bachchan being a part of Bigg Boss 3? Do you feel that he will add a lot more entertainment and TRPs to the show? Or do you think that the audience fatigue will have set in and he won’t be able to do much for the show? Please use the comments section below to share your opinion.
