"Bigg Boss 8" is all set to air on 21 September in Colors Channel. Salman Khan who will be reprising his role as a host has already hinted the theme and set-up of the new season with the recently released teasers and photos.

The new season's aircraft theme, just like last season, will feature two sections – Economy and Business class and will also have a waiting lounge, a source close to the show told Daily Mail.

"To elevate the excitement level, the house will be designed as the interior of an aircraft, just as last year's season seven was designed as heaven and hell," said the source. 

Though, the names of possible contestants have been doing the rounds, the final list of house-mates has been kept a secret by the makers.

Reportedly, sources from the channel have revealed some of the names of celebs who will be part of "Bigg Boss 8" and are expected to give a daily dosage of gossips and controversies for the next 30 days.

Last year's season was the most-watched season of all times owing to Khan's alleged biased behaviour towards few contestants.

However, it has been revealed that this time around, the reality show that revolves around controversies, will be bigger and better than the previous seasons. Khan, who has some big hits this year including "Jai Ho" and "Kick", has also hiked his fee and will reportedly charge ₹5-6 crore per week for hosting the show.
