Bigg Boss is all set to come up with their season 3 edition on Colors Television. Bigg Boss as we all know is the Indian adaptation of UK’s largest reality Television show “Big Brother“. The first edition was won by former actor Rahul Roy. In this new edition, the surprise package comes in the form of ‘Big B’ Amitabh Bachchan. The Bollywood Super star will be replacing the sensational Shilpa Shetty who was the host of Bigg Boss 2.
So, what makes Reality shows like Bigg Boss popular? It could be the sneak peek moments, real life like conversations, chemistry between the various participants and bitchy moments which induces the ‘spice’ element in the show. Hence, reality show could be considered a means to vent out the voyeuristic aspect that audiences have within them, which is entrapped and fails to surface in normal life situation. Apart from it, reality shows could also be a means to know the ‘real’ side to stars and their temperament. So, in short, it is about thrill and intrigue rather than a more meaningful context. One would have to wait and watch if this year’s Bigg Boss 3 is making an attempt to change the perception of the audience towards a reality show.
By roping in Bollywood icon Amitabh Bachchan to host Bigg Boss 3 will surely make a remarkable difference to the show in terms of eyeballs and popularity. The star cast of the show is not yet decided and audience would have the onus to decide the residents of Big Boss House.
Amitabh Bachchan would act as a truth-seeker wherein he will comment on the behavior of all the contestants in the house and analyze why they behave in a particular manner and also act as an association between the Bigg Boss contestants and the viewers. He will also analyze the weekly developments in the house. Amitabh Bachchan returns to the silver screen after a break of four years, ( he last he featured in Kaun Banega Crorepati season 2 and will be seen sizzling on small screen once again.)
For all his devout and diehard fans, his return to television would come as a big news. To the millions who still remember ‘Lock Kiya Jaye‘ from Kaun Banega Crorepati, this legendary actor with his baritone voice created an entire aura of aplomb and warmth which gave the contestants a cushion of comfort in the show.
For Colors it is a rocking season with two breathtaking shows coming up i.e. Khatron ke Khiladi level 2 and Big Boss 3 in the pipeline. The channel is already ruling the General Entertainment space with their shows like Balika Vadhu and Na Aana Is Des Laado.
So, one would have to wait and watch whether it is able to extend its lead with Bigg Boss 3…
