The 10th edition of Colors' controversial reality show "Bigg Boss" is gearing up to hit screens October onwards and to raise the curiosity of the show's viewers, the makers will soon release the promo of "Bigg Boss 10" featuring host Salman Khan.

According to Bollywood Life, Salman will shoot for the promo on Wednesday, July 27, before leaving for Ladakh for the shooting of his upcoming film "Tubelight" directed by Kabir Khan.

Interestingly, Salman, who had charged Rs. 6 to 8 crore per episode last year, has agreed to a pay slash. Instead, he has asked Colors channel to contribute a huge sum of money to his charitable organisation Being Human.

Meanwhile, "Bigg Boss 10" will see a change in the show's format with commoners participating on the show along with celebrities. The selection procedure for the common public on "Bigg Boss 10" requires them to upload a three-minute video highlighting their best traits and explaining why they fit into the format of the show.

Meanwhile, the makers have managed to keep the list of participants under wraps. However, a few names of possible contestants have surfaced online. Santosh Bateshwar Ray, who was slapped by Govinda eight years ago for apparently misbehaving on the sets of the film "Money Hai Toh Honey Hai," has been approached to participate on the show. Balraj Singh Khehra, who won "MTV Roadies X4," had also expressed his willingness to join "Bigg Boss 10." 

Pakistani model Qandeel Baloch, who was murdered by her brother a few weeks ago, was also said to have been approached to participate.
