We all know that the much awaited reality show of the year Bigg Boss 3 will start from 4th October 9 PM prime time and will be aired on Colors TV. The latest buzz from the show is that Bollywood superstar Amitabh Bachchan will play the role of Pop Philosopher in the third season of Bigg Boss.
And he is going to take over from Shilpa Shetty, who hosted the show last season. The Indian version of the popular British reality show Celebrity Big Brother, Bigg Boss 3 will have celebrity contestants locked into a house under the surveillance of multiple cameras for a period of three months without any contact with the outside world.

Big B, who had a superhit stint as the host of Kaun Banega Crorepati for two seasons, will be seen on this show as the Pop Philosopher, not once but twice a week, on Fridays and Saturdays. The superstar will be the only link between the participants and the audience. “We need to analyse the minds of those on the show and reach out to as many people as possible through it. On eviction day, I will discuss the thought process of that particular contestant,” informed Amitabh Bachchan.
The Big B’s intention is to add the human element to the reality show, as in why a person behaves in a certain way under certain circumstances and so on. The star has also recorded a special song and shot a musical trailer for BB 3 which has been composed by musical duo Vishal and Shekhar. And this time around, the audience can also vote for the one they want to see inside the house.
On why Bachchan was picked for this role, Colours CEO Rajesh Kamat said, “Bigg Boss 2 was hugely popular. This time we wanted to make it more bigger and pan -India so it appeals to people from the ages 4 to 64. Once we decided on Amitabh Bachchan, we worked out the Pop Philosopher role for him. The idea was to deconstruct the emotions of those in the house and initiate discussions where we can keep the audience engaged.”
