Bigg Boss, one of the most popular reality shows in India, will be returning to the television screens with season 13 this year. To be hosted by Salman Khan, Bigg Boss 13 will only feature celebrities and not commoners, unlike the last three seasons. However, the name of any celebrity contestant has not been revealed till yet but the premiere date of Bigg Boss 13 is now out.
A Pinkvilla report stated that the controversial reality show will kick off from September 29.
“The makers have officially discussed the date in the team, and usually September-October is when they look to begin. BB 13 will start telecasting from September 29 this time and given that the show is usually a 15-week affair, the Grand Finale is expected to be around January 12, 2020,” the report said.
Besides the celebrities versus commoners theme, there is one more alteration for the thirteenth season. The Bigg Boss house has now been shifted from Lonavala to Goregaon to save Salman a considerable amount of commute time every week as he will be simultaneously shooting for his films Dabangg 3 and Inshallah.
“They have already started building their house in Goregaon’s Film City and ditched the usual Lonavla sets this time. They roll with Madhuri Dixit led Dance Deewane 2 from June 15, which is again a 31-episode series. It ends on September 28 and the very next day, Salman will shoot the grand premiere of BB 13,” the reports further added.
After a rather underwhelming season 12, the ardent followers of Bigg Boss are eagerly looking forward to the new season.
