Season three of ‘Bigg Boss’ kicked off in India last night and the thirteen celebrity contestants have been revealed.

Shilpa Shetty’s younger sister, Shamita Shetty, tops the list, alongside actress from yesteryears – Poonam Dhillon. Model turned actress Sherlyn Chopra is also a part of the show who will certainly add glamour in the house.

Rakhi Sawant’s mother – Jaya Sawant, Aditi Govitriker, Ismail Darbar (musicican), Rohit Verma (fashion designer), Claudia Ciesla, Bakhtiyaar and Tanaaz Irani, Raju Srivastav, Vindoo Dara Singh and Kamal Khan (Desh Drohi fame) also fill the remaining spaces in the ‘Bigg Boss’ house.

‘Bigg Boss’ is being fronted by Bollywood living legend, Amitabh Bachchan. He will play the ‘pop psychologist’ to those in the house. His intention is to add the human element to the reality show.

‘Bigg Boss’ is the Indian version of the popular British reality show ‘Big Brother’. ‘Bigg Boss’ has celebrity contestants locked into a house under the surveillance of multiple cameras for a period of two-three months without any contact with the outside world.

The programme is being aired on Indian TV channel, Colors. The channel is currently unavailable in the UK.
