Mumbai, Oct 4 (Calcutta Tube / IBNS) The fifth edition of celebrity reality show Bigg Boss promises to offer enough vicarious pleasures of its own with last year’s groovy host, Salman Khan revisiting the madhouse alongside a woefully miscast Sanjay Dutt.
Coming to the opening episode, it wasn’t nearly as grand as its predecessor with hurried introductions, lackluster performances and almost zero turn out from previous seasons.
Unless you count former contestant Sameer Soni’s brief appearance to promote his upcoming wedding in on-going Colors serial, Parichay.
And since Dutt’s Rascals is ready for release, co-stars Ajay Devgn and Lisa Haydon showed up to plug the David Dhawan comedy. The men collaborated to pull a fast one on Lisa but her inability to play along made this one a flat prank.
Meanwhile, celebs have started tweeting on Bigg Boss 5.
Filmmaker Shirish Kunder tweeted: “For a change, Shakti Kapoor is going to get gang raped in Big Boss. Big Boss has proved one thing. People love freak shows.”
Roshan Abbas said: “From criminals to wives and girlfriends of criminals!! Way to go Big Boss. This is boring…pls bring Dolly Bindra back!! When so many effects and long jib shots r used u know the artiste is crap..so far its used for every contestant in Big Boss entry!!”
Actor Konkona Sen Sharma was trying to get away from the Bigg Boss frenzy.
“It seems you can’t escape Big Boss. Even if you’re not watching, it’s what everybody is tweeting,” tweeted Konkona.
Singer Abhijeet Sawant said: “Watching big boss.. My friend mehek chahel is in the show.. I know her.. She is very shot tempered.. Woh laga sakti hai sabki waat.. Go girl.”
Actor-cricket commentator Mandira Bedi tweeted: “Yikes.. Every year the Hosts of the show get better.. And the contests get worse.. ”
Actor-producer Ajay Devgn said: “Shot this morning with Sanju an Salman 4 Big Boss. We r really the original 3 Rascalas!!!!!!”
Since actor Shakti Kapoor is the only male inmate in the Bigg Boss house, speculations have started on with whom he can make a team.
The options for him are:
She is a hot, but she is also the daughter of Kabir Bedi, after all. Shakti has done few films with Kabir and surely will not want to do bad with the Pooja, so he can safely team with her.
She obviously loves soap operas, considering she earned her fame acting in them. Wethinks Shakti loves drama too, considering there is so much of it in his life. Common ground.
She is sexy and a good friend of host Salman Khan. Befriending the host’s friend is a good way to stay on the show.
She is a woman who is brave enough to wear a bikini and get banned by her home country Afghanistan. Which man wouldn’t love to be with someone like her?
Obviously, she loves bad boys. She did marry serial killer Charles Sobhraj after all. And Shakti Kapoor has perfected the bad boy image like no other B-towner. They will be a perfect match
She shot to fame by claiming that her then boyfriend Raja Chaudhary had beaten her. Shakti does well with controversies too, so they should get along well.
VJ Pooja Missra
This girl loves to dance and we know that Shakti loves to groove too. Remember his moves in the Raja Babu song? Well, Shakti would definitely want to do an item number with Pooja at some point!
She is cute and can be quite the charmer. It wouldn’t be difficult to imagine Shakti enjoying this smart girl’s company!
She has already been dubbed as rude and talkative by Pooja Bedi and Shonali Nagrani. She is a huge gossipmonger too so Shakti would love to keep her in his good books, won’t he?
The Rajasthani folk dancer is the only woman his age! So if all the younger chicks don’t pay him any attention then he could turn to this gaon ki chori who is also a women’s rights activist!
She is six months pregnant and it would be really weird to see Shakti woo her. So let’s hope for his own good that he doesn’t fall for this wrestler.
Laxmi Narayan Tripathi
Shakti could turn to Laxmi and bond with her if all the women start giving him a hard time in the Bigg Boss house.
Shakti has tried his hand at different aspects of filmmaking, but the one thing he hasn’t done so far is sing. He could bond with Raageshwari as she teaches him how to showcase those vocal chords.
Meanwhile, alleging that her husband has been kept as a “hostage” in a Kathmandu prison, Nihita Biswas, the Nepali wife of serial killer Charles Sobhraj, has revealed that she is participating in the reality show ‘Bigg Boss 5′ to explore new challenges in life.
Already housemates of Bigg Boss Season 5 have nominated Nihita Biswas and Pooja Misrra for eviction from Bigg Boss House.
