[Article for one of the Fashion Magazine]The fifth installment of popular TV reality show 'Bigg Boss' started on 2nd Octomber, it promises to get bigger and better with tons of drama and manipulation. The house location is changed to Karjat from Lonavala, with two star hosts --Salman and Sanjay. Interior designer Shayam Bhatia has designed the 9,000 square feet house.
This time there are two separate bedrooms, in last season there was a single bedroom where all 14 housemates stayed. The bedrooms have been done in shades of green and fuchsia with a hint of white, brown and yellow. The confession room varies with a shade of royal green & the jail concept is back and black.
Open kitchen is connected to a dining room that extends to the garden area. The outdoor spot consists of a gymnasium, pool, the activity area and the kitchen sink. There will be a special bedroom for the Head-of-House who will get special privileges. This season there will be over 55 cameras following every move of the contestants 24x7.
Colors kept participants as ‘National Treasures’ in there Kitty while media is tried their best to get the cat out of the bag. The format of the show has undergone a major change from the previous seasons which had seven male and seven female contestants. It's almost a "Bachna ae haseeno" moment in the "Bigg Boss" house this season. Baddie Shakti Kapoor is the only male contestant amidst 13 beauties in the Bigg Boss 5 house. So there's plenty of bird watching opportunity for the men, but for the female viewers, there's only 50 years old Shakti.
Shakti Kapoor was stuck in controversy after a news channel aired tapes shot with hidden camera showing the actor seeking sexual favors from a journalist camouflaged as a Bollywood aspirant. It would be appealing to see if Shakti has some disclosures to make on the show.
Let’s have a look at the other contestants in the Bigg Boss season 5 and check who Shakti will want beside him:
MAHEK CHAHAL made her Bollywood debut in 2003 with a role in Nayee Padosan, she also did an item number in Chameli movie. She is sexy and a good pal of host Salman Khan. Befriending the host’s friend is a good way to stay on the show.
SONALI NAGRANI won Miss India International pageant in 2003 and subsequently finished first runner-up of Miss International 2003.She did ancoring for Indian Premier League shows for Sony TV India and ITV, she has appeared in supporting roles in Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi and Dil Bole Hadippa. She is delightful and can be quite the charmer.
POOJA MISHRA is model turned actor, she is trained belly dancer and Kathak beauty also has two Bollywood movies tucked under her curvaceous belt â€” one is an action film and the other is a satire. She loves to dance and it’s a well known fact that Shakti loves to groove too. He would definitely want to do an item number with Pooja at some point.
JUHI PARMAR is TV actress and she essayed lead roles in Shaheen, Kumkum, Devi, Pehchanand Tere Ishq Mein She is married to Sachin Shroff, the duo was last seen together in reality show 'Pati Patni Aur Woh'. Dominating Juhi loves soap operas, considering she earned her fame acting in Kumkum. Shakti loves drama too, considering there is so much of it in his life. So they can create good Drama in the house.
SHRADHA SHARMA is well known as beau of Raja Chaudhary (Shweta Tiwari's estranged husband). Raja assaulted her after the couple had a heated argument and then Shraddha was severely beaten up by him and suffered bruises and scratches all over her body. Still they are in live-in relationship. She is in news for all wrong reasons. Shakti does well with controversies too, so they should get along well.
LAXMI NARAYAN TRIPATI Like every year, colors roped a transgender, Laxmi is well known social activist. She will continue the tradition of representing sexual transgender minorities on the show which started with actor Bobby Darling, followed by designer Rohit Verma and Begum Nawazish Althat. Shakti may turn to Laxmi and union with her if all the women start giving him a hard time in the house.
POOJA BEDI shot to fame with her stint in Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikandar, she was part of reality shows like ‘Jhalak Dikhla Jaa’, ‘Nach Baliye’, ‘Khatron Ke Khiladi’ and was last seen in ‘Maa Exchange’.She had hosted the Saturday special episode of Bigg Boss season 2 where she interviewed the evicted contestants and this season we will see her participate in it. She is also the daughter of Kabir Bedi, I think Shakti won’t want to cross his contemporary B-towner and get Pooja out of the show.
NIHITA BISWAS is the wife of smuggler and serial killer Charles Sobhraj. Sobraj was nicknamed the bikini killer and is serving life imprisonment in Nepal, and instantly acquired mini celebrity status. 22-years old Nihita got married Sobhraj last year, is all set to take her first step towards stardom. Nihita loves bad boys and Shakti Kapoor has perfected the bad boy image like no other B-towner. I guess they will be a perfect match.
VIDA SAMADZAI is Miss Afghanistan 2003, she is a woman who is courageous enough to wear a bikini and get banned by her home country Afghanistan. Which man wouldn’t be keen on to be with someone like her?
GULABO SAPERA is well known Rajasthani folk dancer and also a women’s rights activist. If all the younger chicks don’t pay Shakti any attention then he could turn to this gaon ki chori.
SONIKA KALIRAMAN daughter of legendary wrestler Master Chandgi Ram is a wrestler. She is six months pregnant and it would be truly strange to see Shakti woo her. So let’s hope for his own good that he doesn’t fall for this wrestler.
RAAGESHWARI LOOMBA is an Indian pop singer, actress, model, television anchor and former MTV VJ. Bad boy Shakti has tried his hand at different phases of filmmaking, but the one thing he hasn’t done so far is sing. He might bond with buddly Raageshwari.
I am pretty sure that this easy companionship between the two hosts Salman and Sanjay, 13 sizzling beauties and Aaoo boy Shakti Kapoor are sure to double the ratings of the show.
