The makers of Salman Khan's "Bigg Boss 8" have released the latest teaser, which reveals more than what was being speculated.

Set to air on 21 September, 9pm onwards, the mad house will be for sure designed as an aircraft and Khan will steer it to desired destinations.

With a tagline suggestive of impending 'challenges' ("Bigg Boss aath, sabki lagegi waat"), the high-voltage reality TV show has a bagful of surprises lined up for its contestants.

Peppered with twists and turns, this season too will witness some unexpected happenings. In the promo, Khan welcomes one and all to his 'vimaan' (aircraft) and promises to take the contestants to the 'asmaan' (sky), but warns that a destination hasn't been decided on yet.

Another uncertain aspect of the soon-to-air show happens to be the contestants' list. Rumours are rife that while actress Minissha Lamba, Shweta Salve, Karishma Tanna and Mariam Zakaria have given a nod for the controversy-happy show, Ameesha Patel and Shiney Ahuja have turned down the offer.

However, according to an India Today report, the makers will reportedly approach couples only for this season. "Given the history of the show, there will be ample PDA on the small screen and it will be interesting to see how the makers duck any controversy regarding," states the report.

The "Kick" actor who appeared thrilled about the eighth instalment shouted out in the teaser "Can't wait, for Bigg Boss Season 8". Interestingly, only last month Khan reportedly called hosting the show a 'hassle' and nominated archrival Shah Rukh Khan as a better replacement for him. Last season, Khan was heavily criticised for speaking his mind and expressing biased opinions about certain contestants.

The 48-year-old actor has hosted three seasons consecutively. The debut season was hosted by Arshad Warsi (2006), who was then replaced by Shilpa Shetty in 2008. Megastar Amitabh Bachchan also worked with "Bigg Boss" in 2009.
