With two promos already on air, "Bigg Boss 8", the controversial TV reality show, is set to get bigger this season.
Known for coming up with unique themes every season, the makers are trying to give the house a different touch this time. "The 'Bigg Boss' house will be designed like an aircraft. The interiors and the furniture inside the lavish 'Bigg Boss' house will be designed to give the house inmates an 'airplane' feel and not just another normal house," DNA quoted a source.
Since "Bigg Boss" follows the "Big Brother" format, quite often ideas are borrowed from the international TV shows and tweaked, keeping the Indian context in mind. In "Big Brother 15" (U.S.), one of the rooms was designed as an aircraft. Known as the 'Have-Not' room, it featured aircraft seats for beds and was flanked by travel bags. It had window seat wallpapers and a airport bulletin board.
Have-Not is a contestant who fails to win a particular competition held at the house. According to reports, the guests who made it to the dreaded room owing to poor performance would end up eating slop in addition to food.
Similarly, in "Bigg Boss 7", contestants who failed to complete any task were made to live in 'hell'. Now, will the new house have one such room or the main them will be that of an aircraft is what the TV show holds for its viewers. With a speculated budget of close to ₹150 crore, the makers might just consider interiors that of an airplane.
Khan, who has already shot promos with director Rohit Shetty, has reportedly charged ₹5-6 crore per episode. Going by the superstar's market value and the show's budget, the amount is meagre. But the question is, will the makers be able to accommodate so much in the budget? Only time will tell.
