Bigg Boss is one of the shows in Indian Television which the audience waits for eagerly. This is a seasonal show which comes every year and since beginning of the show, it has been a hit. Though the idea is not original but taken from the Hollywood television show ‘Big Brother’ but whatever works. Originality is not the highlight of the show anyway!
The 12th instalment of the show is at the corner of the door and will start on 16th September, 2018. Yet again, the show will be hosted by its most loved host, Salman Khan (perfectly suited for the show). Currently India’s most controversial reality TV show is on the verge of starting the showmanship. So, here are some shocking truths about the show:
1. The show might not be completely scripted but as Hina Khan has put it, it is “well edited”. You have no idea what wonders editing can do!
2. Shweta Tiwari, the TV actress who also took part in the show and won Bigg Boss 4 said Hindustan Times in an interview, “I don’t watch Big Boss that often. To be very honest, Bigg Boss is very entertaining and people keep talking about what has happened, but when I watch the show, I don’t know what to believe because I know a lot of it is edited. Many times, long conversations are only shown as two lines in the show, which then leads to misunderstandings.”
3. Another former Bigg Boss contestant, Aashka Goradia claimed that the show portrayed her sexuality in the wrong way and said, “My sexuality was portrayed in a wrong way. I was intentionally made to come across as a lesbian on this reality show through editing tricks and it was extremely embarrassing for me and my parents. I was rubbing balm on a sick fellow inmate’s body after she had broken into an allergic reaction... I was putting my hand inside her blanket so as to not embarrass her about her rash on national television and they made it look like something else was going on”.
4. Also, you might think that alcohol is strictly prohibited at the show but that is not at all true. Contestants who asks for their choice of liquor they are served that in juice packets instead of wine glasses.
5. Celebs and the participants in the show do get intimate in the show but thanks to the editing skills, the steamy footages are edited from the show because of the GEC (General entertainment channel) clauses.
