Colors has confirmed the spin-off show ‘Bigg Boss 8 – Halla Bol’, which will extend the current run of the popular reality show.
Starting from Sunday 4th January, ‘Bigg Boss 8 – Halla Bol’ will see five champions from this year’s series be selected and further face scrutiny from five ex-‘Bigg Boss’ celebrities including Rahul Mahajan, Sambhavna Seth, Ajaz Khan and Mahek Chahal. Filmmaker, Farah Khan will take over the weekend hosting duties replacing Salman Khan, who leaves this month due to filming commitments.
Raj Nayak, CEO, Colors said, “This season of Bigg Boss has been a phenomenal one. Be it in terms of ratings or in terms of entertainment, Season 8 has lived up to its promise of having a mast safar with zabardast twists! This New Year we bring the Bigg Boss buffs another engrossing series packed with newer twists and interesting characters. This show is our New Year gift to all our Bigg Boss fans. Further, we are happy to announce that we have roped in Snapdeal.com as the presenting sponsor for Bigg Boss Halla Bol following the stupendous response that both – the show and the brand – have received for the eighth season of the show.”
Farah Khan added, “I have loved watching Bigg Boss and enjoy everything about it. The Bigg Boss Halla Bol Series is unlike anything that regular viewers of the show could have ever perceived. Salman Khan has been truly entertaining as a host with his affable style and quick wit. I am looking forward to building a unique experience for the viewers through this venture and hope they enjoy every bit of it.”
‘Bigg Boss 8’ has been extended by four weeks due to success in ratings for Colors. In the UK, the show is regularly giving Star Plus a tough time in ratings.
