When Bigg Boss launched in 2006 on Sony TV for the primary time, only a few had an thought what it could turn into. An adaptation of Dutch actuality present Huge Brother, the present checks the survival capabilities of an individual. Whereas initially the collection began with a humble setting, over time, the home has undergone vital makeovers with quite a lot of luxuries offered to the housemates. It even moved channels in 2008 (season 2), when it began airing on Colours, and has been part of its programming until now.
Because the countdown to Bigg Boss 2020 begins, we determined to revisit the earlier seasons of the controversial actuality present.
Through the years, many celebrities have entered Bigg Boss. Whereas many shocked followers with their behaviour, some managed to win hearts. A couple of celebrities additionally revived their careers via the present, whereas others quickly vanished. The preliminary seasons noticed individuals from totally different walks of life being pitted towards one another. Nonetheless, in the previous few years, the present has been dominated by tv stars. We are able to’t actually complain as this works for the makers, given these actors’ recognition and recall worth. Additionally, the shock ingredient can also be there as most bahus turn into babes in actual life.
Going again in time, season one was in all probability the most effective of the lot as regardless of the housemates did, appeared like a shock. Be it Amit Sadh crying over a espresso mug, Kashmera Shah and Rakhi Sawant’s catfights to Rahul Roy shedding his ‘Aashiqui’ picture, the season was a deal with to observe. Nonetheless, with time, issues bought predictable. The following two seasons had been forgettable, to say the least. With tremendous boring contestants, who compelled the drama, the much less mentioned the higher. Even with an elephant’s reminiscence, it’s exhausting to recall a spotlight from season 2, whereas the next season will solely be remembered for KRK’s atrocious behaviour.
Nonetheless, season 4 got here as a breath of recent air for all Bigg Boss followers. The present had the whole lot – fights, drama, love, tears and for the primary time, a wedding on nationwide tv. Sure, Sara Khan and Ali Service provider took their marriage ceremony vows contained in the Bigg Boss home. Whereas they quickly bought divorced, the televised marriage ceremony created fairly a furore. Additionally, making some tall claims, the makers additionally introduced in WWE champ The Nice Khali as a wild card contestant. Whereas he simply lazed round the home throughout his keep, given his recognition, he even reached the finale. Oh, and do you know, Pamela Anderson was additionally a visitor within the season (go, Google it now).
After Anderson, the makers gave the impression to be taken by the firang issue, as season 5 not solely had controversial cricketer Andrew Symonds but additionally former grownup star Sunny Leone getting into as wildcards. The season will likely be remembered for having probably the most fascinating lot of individuals, however unusually public voting made TV bahu Juhi Parmar the winner. Equally, season 6 additionally had an atrangi lot, be it Imam Siddiqui, Sapna Bhavnan, Dinesh Lal Yadav or Gulabi Gang chief Sampat Pal Devi. However given her recognition, Urvashi Dholakia took house the trophy.
After which got here one other blockbuster season with some actually robust gamers. Whereas Gauahar Khan and Tanishaa Mukerji had been frontrunners from the beginning, Kamya Punjabi, Kushal Tandon and Sangram Singh gave them a troublesome combat. This was in all probability the primary season, the place the housemates took duties significantly. Kamya and Sangram even created a document of staying inside a field for a really very long time. The contestants in season 8 additionally took duties significantly, or somewhat too significantly. Bear in mind how Karishma Tanna and gang began the pattern of utilizing chilli powder towards the opposing crew? The season may even be remembered for a way Gautam Gulati was remoted by the housemates, however that helped him join with followers and helped him take house the trophy.
There’s not a lot to speak about season 9, aside from the truth that Prince Narula discovered his life companion Yuvika Chaudhary within the Bigg Boss home. Whereas it began simply as an attraction, submit the present, Prince wooed Yuvika, and right now, the 2 are fortunately married. After which got here a dhamaka in season 10. For the primary time, the doorways of Bigg Boss home had been opened for commoners. And oh boy, did they benefit from the chance! Manveer Gurjar, Manu Punjabi, Swami Om and Priyanka Jagga created a storm with their fearless angle. Whereas not many truly managed to impress, Gurjar went on to win the present.
After a very long time, season 11 turned out to be a cracker of a season with the likes of Hina Khan, Vikas Gupta, Shilpa Shinde, Arshi Khan, Hiten Tejwani being locked inside the home. The most effective castings within the historical past of Bigg Boss, every contestant added a unique flavour, and collectively they ensured a ‘mast’ season. Whereas Shilpa Shinde took house the trophy, Hina Khan remains to be thought of to be the ‘actual winner’ of the season. And the other occurred within the subsequent season. Even with large names like Dipika Kakar, Sreesanth, Srishty Rode, season 12 turned out to be a uninteresting affair. The housemates had been boring, disinterested and lacked the fervour. Total, this was one of many worst seasons in latest occasions.
And after a failed season, Bigg Boss 13 went on to interrupt all information. With names like Sidharth Shukla, Rashami Desai, Devoleena Bhattacharjee, Paras Chabra amongst others, the season regarded promising from the beginning. Nonetheless, the darkish horses of the present turned out to be Shehnaaz Gill and Asim Riaz. Each of them had been actual and that made them relatable to the viewers. Be it their fights, emotions for Sidharth and Himanshi, respectively, or simply plain leisure, the 2 are nonetheless a favorite for followers. The season, nevertheless, was received by Sidharth Shukla.
Aside from celebrities, Bigg Boss additionally makes fairly a noise because of its much-loved host Salman Khan. It’s been ages, however in case you don’t keep in mind, the primary season was hosted by Arshad Warsi. Contemporary from the win of Superstar Huge Brother, Shilpa Shetty got here in subsequent, adopted by Shehenshah of Bollywood Amitabh Bachchan. Salman Khan joined within the fourth season, and this appears to be a without end affiliation. Curiously, Shah Rukh Khan was the primary selection as a number for makers. Nonetheless, given he was recovering from an damage, the makers went to Salman. And now, we really feel Bigg Boss is incomplete with out Bhaijaan. He not solely provides his inimitable type and appeal to the present, however he’s the one host who can scold and joke round with celebrities on the identical time. Whereas a number of have tried to face as much as him, on the finish, Salman has the final phrase on the present.
In all his interviews, Salman Khan has talked about how he too feels stressed all through the journey of Bigg Boss. There have been quite a few events when there have been stories of him quitting the present. However given the shut affiliation and the fats cheque, Khan has stayed again. The present additionally introduced him an added fan following, and altered his ‘dangerous boy picture’. Eager to do the identical for his good pal Sanjay Dutt, Salman had bought him to co-host Bigg Boss 5. Nonetheless, Dutt simply went on to seem like a disinterested prop positioned beside Khan.
Bigg Boss is normally termed because the ‘most controversial’ actuality present. The preliminary seasons solely turned in style due to the various notorious fights. Be it KRK throwing a bottle at Rohit Verma, Dolly Bindra’s ‘baap pe mat jaana’ to Pooja Missra taking up the entire home is season 5. Nonetheless, quickly knowledge got here calling, and other people didn’t actually combat with no trigger (although the home does give many causes to combat). Within the later a part of the present’s journey, controversies took a brand new flip altogether.

Bigg Boss 13 additionally for the primary time had a contestant’s (Arhaan Khan) previous being revealed by host Salman Khan on nationwide tv. Whereas all these did add to the masala ingredient, nothing can beat Swami Om’s notorious presence in BB 10.
If controversies weren’t sufficient to create drama, one other technique that has labored is, in fact, romance. Although relationships shaped within the Bigg Boss haven’t managed to outlive the true world, that has not stopped contestants from falling in love. Few celebs who had been struck by cupid embody Aaryan Vaid- Anupama Verma, Gauahar Khan-Kushal Tandon, Tanishaa Mukerji-Armaan Kohli, Puneesh Sharma-Bandgi Kalra, Asim Riaz-Himanshi Khurana, Upen Patel-Karishma Tanna amongst others.
So nicely, thoda pyaar and quite a lot of takraar makes Bigg Boss a present that you simply may love, or hate however definitely can by no means ignore. It’s one of many few actuality exhibits the place you don’t really need expertise to win. Curiously, even consultants haven’t been capable of crack the profitable technique for this present. In any case, it’s the janta who you should impress, and what they like or don’t like, nicely, that’s nonetheless a thriller!
