Bigg Boss is all set to hit the Indian Screens on new Entertainment Channel Colors on 17th August 2008 and the show is already in the news. Faisal Khan, brother of Aamir Khan who is said to be one of the inmates is out of the show even before the show started. Why? The insiders say that Aamir Khan did not want Faisal Khan to be in the show and he fears Faisal might spill the beans, the truth about his relation with Aamir. Faisal Khan was in the news when Aamir Khan went to court stating Faisal was unstable and Aamir needs to keep the custody of his brother Faisal. However the decision went against Aamir. Probably that pissed Aamir more. Read more about Faisal Khan.
Imran Khan, nephew of Aamir Khan, who starred in Jaane Tu ya Jaane na.. is said to have helped his Uncle Aamir through his girlfriend Avantika. Avantika is said to be associated with Network 18 and the entertainment channel Colors is a joint venture between Network 18 and Viacom. As per the channel, they have asked Faisal to leave on grounds that his mental state is not good. Hmmm, why did they offer them at first place?
When asked Faisal said that he (Aamir) did not want me to speak the truth and that’s why he worked out that with the producers and got me out. He continued saying he got all papers signed and was all excited to have a 3 months closed door life, but then he was communicated that he is no more in the show. That news came as a shock to him.
We all know how Aamir dominates his producers and directors to get the movie done, but here it’s the question of Faisal Khan’s professional life, which is already in a mess. The last known movie that comes to our mind was Mela, which also did not go quite well. With Bigg Boss, Faisal was hoping to grab some attention and perhaps try his luck with television if not Bollywood. We are sure if not Bigg Boss, Faisal will speak up in front of media, who are always hungry for these news and gossips. So expect some sizzling revelations in coming days.
Some other news from Bigg Boss are:
1. Sherlyn Chopra is supposed to have asked for whopping Rs. 3 crores (Indian Rupees 30 Million) as Bigg Boss wanted to have cameras in the bathroom! Cameras in the washroom? It’s said most of the controversial talks are done in the bathroom and producers do not want to miss any scoop to create more news! Well not a bad idea Sherlyn, your MMS through hidden camera just before the release of movie drew lots of attention in the past.
2. British actor Jade Goody, one of the inmates from Big Brother London, whose racial remarks created the biggest controversy on Big Brother will be on Bigg Boss for about 2 weeks or so. She is said to be receiving approx RS 80 lakhs (Indian Rupees 8 million) for the show. Interestingly, the show will be hosted by Shilpa Shetty, against whom Jade made racial remarks and those remarks generated enough sympathy for Shilpa to win the title. Here Jade will be the inmate and Shilpa the host. We are sure she will generate enough controversy as well, probably not through racial remarks.
Channel Colors seems to have been doing good, first by bagging the Fear Factor India show (named as Khatron Ke Khiladi) and now Bigg Boss. Colors channel are sure that with the success of these two shows they will start getting big advertisements and higher TRPs. Lets wait and watch.
