The first official press con was held yesterday. And we can't keep calm coz Bigg Boss is BACK!!!
Everyone is eagerly waiting for October 11 as that’s when Salman Khan’s much awaited show Bigg Boss 9 will finally go air. It's touted to be one of the highly celebrated shows on television and we are literally at the edge of our seats, guessing who could be the possible contestants this year. While the final list will only be out closer to the show's premiere. Yesterday was the first official press conference and it has instantly doubled our excitement to an all new level. A glitzy stage, taken by a dashing Salman and his ridiculously cute antics- How we missed watching Salman's oh-so-adorable hosting on stage? Not only did the superstar introduce us to Bigg Boss 9's tricky new theme Double Trouble but also staged a courtroom by bringing in some of his ex-contestants like Pritam Singh, Urvashi Dholakia and Ali Quli Mirza among others. Here check out this exclusive round up on all that Salman chose to reveal about Bigg Boss 9, at the event last night:
# The main reason why Salman agreed to return on Bigg Boss 9 is not just because of his 'speculated' fee hike(double money). It's the special connection that he shares with his entire team of the show. He revealed how he gets deeply involved with every contestant and feels free to exchange all his emotions with them. Bigg Boss is like family, assures the actor. So, how much ever Salman might go on records to declare he is planning to quit Bigg Boss, fret not! Because that's not happening anytime soon...
# Bigg Boss 9 is scheduled to be aired at 10:30pm between Monday-Friday Salman reasons this shift in new time courtesy the other show Chakravartin Ashoka Samrat, that's faring really well on the TRP charts. Strange how this was the same show that had unwantedly extended Bigg Boss 8 to Bigg Boss Halla Bol, last year.
# Referring to the previous seasons, Salman also confessed how initially he wasn't really ready for this new 'Double Trouble' fearing it would create more controversies. He had even asked Raj Nayak, the CEO of Colors channel to think of some better name. But turns out Salman gradually came in terms with the idea of complicating things for the contestants, making it look exciting both for the viewers as well as the inmates of the show.
# Salman gives the most honest reply on being asked to name actors who 'trouble' him the most from the industry. He said, "I would choose to name none. If there's anyone who is responsible then its my luck. destiny. It's my own journey and I have a very strong family support, fans, the media who stay with me and keep me going."
# Surprisingly, Bigg Boss 9 is going air on the same day as Amitabh Bachchan's birthday. Now though Salman decided to remain ignorant about this fact, but he did convey a special message to Sr Bachchan saying, "This is our way to wish Amitabhji a Happy Birthday"
# Soon Aishwarya Rai Bachchan's Jazbaa will be releasing in theatres. Ask Salman if he would have Ash as a guest on the show and he amusingly replies "Kya Jazbaati sawaal poocha hai?" Following which, he even broke into an impromptu love song Aate Jaate Jo Milta Hai from Har Dil Jo Pyaar Karega! Awww so cute!
# Shah Rukh Khan's Dilwale too is releasing by this year end and Salman has thrown an open invite to his new foe-turned-friend saying, "I would love to have him on the show. But he knows I don't mean it. So let me put it this way- if he has the dates he will come..if he wants to spend time with the contestants he is more than welcome. He can might as well come and give life lessons to my contestants." The last line looked more like a tongue-in-cheek reference to SRK’s video that he had posted on his Facebook page, seen giving life lessons!
# Salman took the trickiest question on marriage. On being asked when does he plan to get 'Double' he initially assumed everyone's talking about his weight double and replied "I am already double the size. In fact, I am on my way to get triple for Sultan." However no sooner he realised its about his shaadi, he said, "If there's a chance to get double then only to triple orelse my life is good. Try my life you will get to know."
# Last but not the least, Salman sweetly mentioned how his family is a huge fan of Bigg Boss. His mom Salma and Karan Johar's mom Hiroo never fail to miss any episode of the show. In fact they even have a whole gang of ladies who watch the show religiously day after day..
