Waiting for Bachchan...
Place: Taj Lands End, Bandra, Date: September 29. Everyone is anxiously waiting for the press conference for India’s the reality show, with
Bollywood’s big boss as anchor, to start as per schedule.
To everyone’s ‘big’ surprise, the event started over an hour and a half late, even though the press conference for Bigg Boss – Season 3 was associated with Amitabh Bachchan, the industry’s most punctual person! But there are many a slip between the cup and the lip. And this time too, we hear, Big B was in the hotel at 9.30 am for a function that was to take off at 10 am. But, he was forced to cool his heels, along with the media present, till it was showtime!
In the reality show, 14 celebrities get to stay together for 85 days under the surveillance of 35 cameras. Amitabh Bachchan will be seen playing ‘Pop Philosopher’ to these participants. AB seemed pretty comfortable in the role of pop philosopher as Rajesh Kamath and Ashwini Yardi of ‘Colors’ explained the term. Kamath said, “He is someone who can decode participants’ emotions and help us understand the reason behind particular behaviour.” On being asked why Bachchan was chosen, pat came the reply, “We wanted to make Bigg Boss 3 bigger and better ... and who better than Big B himself?”
As far as Bachchan Senior is concerned, he admits that the show, the format, contestants have intrigued him immensely. He is also looking forward to interacting with the housemates and trying to find out the reason behind their behaviour.
The show goes on air in the first week of October and the names of the participants is yet to be disclosed, although some guesses are Raju Shrivastava, Sherlyn Chopra, Kamaal Rashid Khan. Hold on for more news from the Bigg Boss house!
