You know what's a favourite kind of 'time pass' for a TV buff? A show that promises a lot of drama (read fights, friendship, love stories and dokhas). Well, you get all of that wrapped in the episodes of Bigg Boss. Isn't it? So, here's some good news for all the fans--the popular reality TV show is coming back on Colors TV with its 13th season and Salman Khan will be the host (of course!).
If reports are to be believed, Bigg Boss 13 will premier on September 13 and this season of the show will include only celebrities. Why? Because the last season saw a major dip in the TRPs. Probably, the makers of the show want to play it safe this time.
Want to know who these celebrities are? We have the tentative list of all the contestants who will be participating in the controversial show.
The Pavitra Rishta actress who was last seen in Manikarnika: The Queen Of Jhansi (opposite Kangana Ranaut) has been approached for the show.
