Salman Khan returns as host
Salman has been entertaining the audience as the host of Bigg Boss since 2010. He recently hosted Bigg Boss OTT 2 as well. Last month, Colors TV and JioCinema dropped a promo featuring the host and actor.
In the promo, Salman was seen in a bald look meddling with a bomb. “Arey ye bhi koi bomb hai? Isse bhi explosive sadasya aayenge (Is this even a bomb? Contestants, who are more explosive than this bomb will be seen on the show this time),” Salman said in the video.
He then went on to cut the wrong wire leading to an explosion and said, “Aag se khilayenge, dhamaka karayenge, dil dimaag aur dum ka hoga ye game but ye game nahi hoga sabke liye same to same (We will make them play with fire and make them explode. But this game is not going to be the same for all, it will be a game of heart, mind and guts).”
Bigg Boss 17’s tentative list of participants
Ahead of the Bigg Boss 17 premiere on October 15, many reports with the list of celebs, who are likely to participate in the Salman Khan-hosted reality show, have been doing the rounds.

Contestants to get access to a phone?
It is rumoured that Bigg Boss 17 contestants might have access to a phone in the Bigg Boss house. This would be the first time in the history of the reality show, breaking its own tradition, leaving social media users with many questions. Some asked if the phone would be accessible to everyone or only some contestants. Others wanted to know how much access will be granted to these contestants.
