Bigg Boss 10 is finally back. 108 days of pure entertainment at the expense of contestants who are locked up in the Bigg Boss house. Sadistic as it may sound, we all enjoy it, right? Salman Khan returns as the host for the 10th season again. And his mad hosting skills topped with attitude and sense of humour are gonna make the weekends, over the next three months, uber entertaining. For weekdays, we have one kickass list of contestants. This season not only has celebrities competing for the coveted spot of the winner but commoners will also be locked up in the house, and fight for the winner’s trophy and prize money. The concept certainly has all of us looking forward to the upcoming episodes. The premiere episode of Bigg Boss 10 was not as glamorous as it used to be with premiere episodes of previous seasons. Despite of Deepika Padukone’s presence, who was there to promote her upcoming Hollywood debut venture xXx: Return of Xander Cage, the episode’s glamour quotient was low.
The episode started with Salman acting like a tour guide, and giving a tour of the house to us virtually and to a lucky few, in person. Now that is one hell of a hot tour guide. The house looks spectacular. But can we say that changing the decor and interiors of the same building is kind of getting boring. Tear that place down and build something entirely new! Please. Anyway, the decor this time is close to Indian roots, with very desi designs ruling the wall paint, hangings and colours. The magnificent peacock painted in the bathroom is without a doubt my most favourite.
Sultan was Salman’s blockbuster release this year, so of course, he had to perform on the hit songs from the film. Baby ko Bass Pasand Hai and humko bhi. It was a total Sallu bhai style performance that fans could not stop cheering to.
And thus began the show. Every celebrity contestant was introduced along with a non-celebrity contestant. First up were Om Swami and Lopamudra Raut. The first set of contestants was so interesting that our excitement reached whole another level to have a look at the next ones. Then came, Manveer Gurjar and Nitibha Kaul. Rohan Mehra entered the house next. So far so good.
Then entered Deepika Padukone on the sets of Bigg Boss to raise the temperature. She was there to promote her upcoming film xXx: Return of Xander Cage with a new trailer, which is so kick ass. Totally loved the trailer. Deepika was wearing a dress that was somewhat a hybrid of her Mastani’s warrior costume and Serena Unger’s sexy outfit. She then entered the house and interacted with the contestants.
More contestants entered the house, and we realised that non celeb contestants are going to be more interesting than than the celebs. What energy, what madness – this bunch is sure a mad mad one. This season is going to be super entertaining. The decision to have non celebrities might just work out in the favour of the show, and get it TRPs like never before.
