‘Bigg Boss turns celebs commoners’

From a comfortable life to a life with limited amenities and entertainment avenues —reality show Bigg Boss shows the transition of a celebrity into a common man, says actor Salman Khan, who is hosting the upcoming sixth season of the show.

‘A celebrity goes in and slowly becomes a common man... the whole transition of having a spot boy, a hair dresser, a driver and then being suddenly all alone. For the first few days, you see the celebrity, but then he becomes carefree,’ said Salman, who is hosting the show.

The new season, set to go on air on 7 October, will have new features — a fish, a talking parrot and a common man among celebrity contestants. The common man will be chosen based on several criteria.

‘The common man will have a personality. He will be an achiever. He must have done something good,’ said Salman.

The 46-year-old says the best thing about Bigg Boss, where celebrity contestants are locked in a secluded house under camera surveillance for three months, is that it reveals people’s true personality.

‘I like that eventually everyone’s original personality comes out. When people play games, you get carried away. You do things which you never thought you could do, you cross all your thresholds.. But the fact is that whoever has won Bigg Boss are very dignified people,’ he said.

According to Salman, everyone enjoys watching controversies and fights, but in limits.

‘To an extent everyone likes and enjoys it but when it goes overboard it becomes irritating,’ he said.

The show, has earlier been caught in controversy over use of abusive language, is given the prime time slot of 9 pm and it will be suitable for family viewing this time.

Salman says that no matter how much they try, what goes inside the house cannot be controlled.

All we can do is before airing on TV it is edited, and the clips are decent,’ he added.
