Yup there is an extra “b” in bigg you’re not seeing double (and my spelling isn’t that bad) guessing some numerologist must have suggested it!

You might have heard that Amitabh Bachchan is going to be on Bigg Boss season 3. (But obviously not as a housemate, no no not Bollywood royalty like that) but more of a “pop philosopher” dissecting the motives of all the participants. As an understandably smug CEO of Colors, Rajesh Kamat quips, “Bollywood Ka Boss meets Bigg Boss!” Epic.

(This is Bachchan’s second television appearance after the spectacular success of Kaun Banega Crorepati. Negotiations between Bachchan and Colors were on until late this week.) Kamat continues, “You may well ask, why Mr Bachchan? But after the success of Season 2 we needed to take Bigg Boss to another level. Earlier, we had the anchors commenting on what’s happening in the Bigg Boss house. Now, the discussion will move to a dinner-table introspection level. Why were the contestants doing what they were doing… what were their motivations, etc. We needed a prophetic voice that would be heard and taken seriously. Quite frankly, if Mr Bachchan hadn’t agreed, we’d have scrapped the concept of the pop philosopher on the show.”

Psst! Didjya notice by the way? There was a major Big B Bollywood extravaganza on Sahara One today. Mukkadar ka Sikkander, Lawaaris… looking good Mr. B, looking good.
