Salman, Deepika open doors of ‘Bigg Boss 10’ house

Mumbai: They might not have worked in a film together yet, but superstar Salman Khan and actress Deepika Padukone gave a sneak-peek of their fun-filled chemistry as they unveiled the tenth season of celebrity reality show “Bigg Boss”.

This is the first time the 50-year-old actor will be joined by another Bollywood star for the opening episode of the show.

Deepika, 30, was there to promote her upcoming maiden Hollywood venture, “xXx: Return of Xander Cage,” which also features action star Vin Diesel.

Salman welcomed the actress warmly and addressed her as a true blue action queen.

The actress, who attended the opening night wearing a black and gold short dress paired with thigh high boots, will be seen performing stunts in the Hollywood project.

This is the first time the Colors reality show has 13 common people locked inside the house with seven celebrity faces.

The celebrity contestants are — Karan Mehra, Gaurav Chopra, VJ-actress Bani, model Lopamudra Raut, Rohan Mehra, Rahul Dev and Bhojpuri film actress Antara Biswas aka Mona Lisa.

Salman, looking dapper in a black suit, introduced the inmates to the audience. The star also performed on some of his popular tracks.

The “Bigg Boss 10” house, located in Lonavala, Maharashtra, has been designed by director Omung Kumar along with his wife Vanita.

This time the house is more colourful and vibrant with many paintings and lanterns put all around. The colour scheme include bright and lively hues of pink, purple, gold and royal blue with some intricate and trendy designs with full-length mirrors.

A new feature in the house is a special seven-sleeper bed space created for select contestants in the bedroom and a touch of luxury has been added to the house with the introduction of a Jacuzzi corner in the bathroom.

The ‘confession room’ has been given a royal touch as the hot seat is an emulation of a King’s throne covered in glittery gold with walls covered in deep red and rustic lamps that are suspended from the ceiling.

The garden area has a swimming pool and gym. Also, a jail with two iron ‘khatiyas’ with dusty bedding has been recreated in the open area of the house for those who break the rules of “Bigg Boss”.

The show will air at 10.30 PM from Monday to Friday and the weekend with Salman is scheduled at 9.00 PM.
