For the first time in the programme’s history, Colors has confirmed that its reality show ‘Bigg Boss’ will have two Bollywood hosts.
Last year’s host Salman Khan will return to television screens later this year, along with popular Bollywood star, Sanjay Dutt.
Raj Nayak, Colors CEO said, “Bigg Boss is one of our flagship shows, which has been successfully running on the channel over the last three seasons. It’s a unique format that provides brands an exciting and innovative platform, spread over more than three months. This year with two of Bollywoods biggest superstars, Salman Khan and Sanjay Dutt, as hosts we’re confident of making Bigg Boss even bigger and generating both – higher revenues as well as stickier eye-balls.”
‘Bigg Boss 4’, which was hosted by Salman Khan, was viewed by over 90 million viewers from across the country and the finale episode had generated a TVR of 6.7. For Season 3, the channel had roped in Amitabh Bachchan, while in the second season (first on Colors) Shilpa Shetty was the host.
‘Bigg Boss 5’ launches on Colors in October.
