Mumbai: Most popular reality show Bigg Boss 13, like every other season, is creating excitement amongst its fans. From the theme to the host Salman Khan’s fees, the audience wants to know every detail of the upcoming season of the most popular yet controversial show of the small screen. There have been 23 shortlisted names of celebrities doing rounds who will be becoming the contestants of the show. And now it seems that out of them, one has been finalized and he is none other than Bollywood actor Chunky Pandey.
As per the latest reports, Pandey who is popular for playing comedy roles in Bollywood films will now be entering the reality show as a participant. He happens to be the first celebrity to be locked inside the house. However, no official confirmation about the same has been made yet by the makers.
Unlike previous seasons, Bigg Boss 13 house is being built in Goregaon’s Film City ditching the usual Lonavla set where most of the seasons have been shot. While there’s a lot of speculations around Bigg Boss 13 grand premiere date, it is being said that the show will start airing on television by September 29 replacing Madhuri Dixit’s dance reality show Dance Deewane 2.
It is also being speculated that owing to their crackling chemistry, Katrina Kaif might co-host Bigg Boss 13 with Salman Khan.
Earlier, it was reported that Salman Khan was charging a whopping amount of over Rs 400 crore for the entire edition. Later, it was learnt that the makers of Bigg Boss have hiked Salman’s fee to Rs 13 crore per week and he will eventually be earning close to Rs 200 crore. Last year, he had charged Rs 11 crore per day shooting both weekend special episodes in a day and earned Rs 165 crore from the whole season.
After the previous season of the show Bigg Boss 12 was declared boring, the makers finally decided to make few changes in the concept and therefore it was decided that only celebrities and no commoners would enter in this season. The previous season of the show was won by Dipika Kakar who these days is seen in the show Kahaan Hum Kahaan Tum. Despite, the fact that the show had some big names like Karanvir Bohra, Sreesanth etc, it could not live up to the expectations of the fans.
