Big Boss is the desi version of internationally acclaimed show Big Brother which will be aired through Sony television channel. As per the programme chalked out by the Sony technicians, 'BiggBoss' will rule the lives of 13 handpicked celebrities from various fields. He will get them to do things that you could never imagine and show you a side of them that you have not seen before. 'Bigg Boss' will show you the live drama as it happens.
According to information the format of the programme is as follows:
Bigg Boss has built a house on the Mumbai outskirts where he will house 13 celebrities for three months. The house is large enough for them, but small enough to ensure that they are always in each other's space. Around 30 cameras will capture each and every move of those celebrities and they do not have any privacy. Of course, they have the privacy in bathrooms. The house will not have any kind of entertainment or sources of communication with outside word, which means there won't be any television, radio, music player, books, Internet, phones.
The celebrities, who enter the house once, cannot come out of it unless they are evicted through a public vote. Those who enter the house will have to satisfy themselves that they have brought everything that are needed for a living for three months. Nothing would be provided and the celebrities have to cook, clean, sweep the floor, etc. without any help from maids or cooks. Not even a make-up artiste to help them look better and they have to fend themselves. Think of all the fun while watching them do the household chores.
Bigg Boss will give the celebrities some tasks on a weekly or a daily basis, through which they will earn their weekly budget. The group will use the budget to buy food items to survive in the house. Each housemate nominates two celebrities for eviction, while the Bigg Boss chooses two celebrities with the maximum number of nominations to be put up for public vote. Voting lines open and the viewers vote to throw out the celebrity they hate the most from the Bigg Boss's house. The celebrity with the maximum votes is evicted from the Bigg Boss's house.
This extreme reality show has a whopping Rs 50-lakh prize money. The challenge is to survive a popularity SMS poll, while co-living for 84 days under constant camera surveillance. However, the celebrities who were handpicked by the organizers were asked to go for a HIV test to avoid any kind of embarrassment in the future as they have to stay together for three months, of course under camera surveillance. But a majority of them had refused to undergo the HIV test as it sounds like suspecting their chastity. One had to wait and watch how the programme would go on air after coming out of all such blues.
