Salman Khan welcomes 'Bigg Boss' contestants

House of Scandal: Bigg Boss opens to Season 6

Bollywood actor Salman Khan has promised a family entertainment in this season of 'Bigg Boss 6'.

That statement saw some raised eyebrows. And going by the list of contestants it will be hard for Salman Khan to justify his family entertainment in a few weeks.

Bigg Boss - is the mother of all reality shows. Season 6 of the TV reality show kicked off on Sunday night with a big bang.

Bigg Boss 6 is likely to live up to its reputation of a 'scandalous house'. With fights, squabbles, controversies and penalties galore, the inmates will surely make the show worth to watch.

Fourteen participants have been locked in the house. Opening day saw full entertainment by the star host Salman Khan who welcomed all the participants in the house.

The punch line for this year's show is "Alag Che" (it`s different), wonder what could be different this year!

Salman danced on various numbers from his movie 'Bodyguard' and 'Ek Tha Tiger'. It was than Rani Mukerji who scorched the stage with her 'Aiyyaa' songs.

Salman welcomed each contestant into the "Bigg Boss" house in a different way. He was later joined by actress Rani Mukerji to put up an entertaining act.

Politician/ex-cricketer/commentator Navjot Singh Sidhu was the first to enter the house followed by actress Sana Khan.

Actor-comedian Vrajesh Hirji, TV actor Urvashi Dholokia and Aashka Goradia stepped into the house along with women`s activist Sampat Pal.

Cartoonist Aseem Trivedi, Sayantani Ghosh of "Naaginn" fame, actor Dinesh Yadav, celebrity hairstylist Sapna Bhavnani too is a part of the show.

Divorced couple Delnaz Paul and Rajev Paul also entered the house, sparking speculations of fireworks.

Popular models Niketan Madhok and Karishma Kotak along with Hyderabad-based martial arts expert Kashif Quereshi entered the show.

The "Bigg Boss" house has been erected at Lonavala this year. From swimming pool to gym to green passage to hand pump, the house erected in Lonavala will give inmates, who will be locked there for 98 days, sufficient space to vent and cool off.

Stretched over an expanse on 15,000 square feet, it has grey overtones with patches of red in places. It has two large unisex bedrooms and one captain's room with an attached bathroom.

Transparent walls, just like in the previous season, separate the rooms. The garden area is one of the most important places of the house - it has a small pool with four white chairs placed next to. There are more seating arrangements in the garden.

The contestants will be locked inside the house for 98 days, away from the comforts of their everyday lives, and without any communication with the outside world. They will have 70 cameras, 15 more than the 55 cameras last season, prying on their activities 24x7.
