Salman Khan takes on the role of a pilot in the new season of reality show Bigg Boss that will take off next Sunday alongside 12 contestants whose identity will be revealed soon. The select 12 first-class passengers will need to carve their own paths, forge their own connections, accept the quirks of their seat-mates and survive in this airspace. With newsmakers from all walks of life having blocked their seats in this one of a kind aircraft, fans will get to watch Salman teach them how to unpack the backpack of their lives with his quintessential sense of humour, genuine empathy, and raw reactions to the contestants.

“Like always we’ll have an incredible range of travellers onboard this time,” promised Salman during the launch in Mumbai. “As we fly high, I can only advise the passengers to stay calm and collected as patience, tolerance, tact and trust are the only tools that will control the turbulence. As a captain, I’ll keep a check on the passenger’s safety and well-being week on week to ensure that their journey is smooth yet not so smooth in this whirlwind voyage.”

Commenting on the launch, Raj Nayak, CEO – COLORS, said, “Bigg Boss has grown to become much more than a show, it is now a television phenomenon. With the continued success of the show season after season, we are now looking forward to surpassing audience expectations with an airy-edgy theme. As the show prepares to leave the runway, we hope to transmit incredible entertainment for our viewers straight from up there! It’s time for audiences to fasten their seatbelts and get ready for a ride of a lifetime through calm and turbulent weather conditions.”

Manisha Sharma, Chief Creative of the show talked about living up to the expectations of the viewers; “The Bigg Boss House is a nation within a nation, with its own language, architecture, mood, and even its own currency—the token that the inmates value even more than the real currency while being trapped. In their quest to traverse the farthest while jostling through the unsettling conditions and without any means to communicate with the outside world, it’s their patience and perseverance that will see them through and help them for a perfect landing.”

Viewers can source all the daily milestones via Facebook and Twitter. While Facebook will have a fun Bigg Boss themed app to test the survival strategies of the player, twitter will leak ‘live’ information through the day.

Bigg Boss season 8 takes off daily from Sunday, September 21, at 9pm on Colors
