And of course, megastar Salman Khan who has become synonymous with Bigg Boss as the host for the sixth season."

Speaking a bit about the audience, Nayak added that,"The decision to make the show suitable to family viewing has done us good, and this season too we will continue to be in the 'family zone' for our viewers".

Salman Khan said,"This season with Double Trouble being the flavour, the contestants have no choice but to double up and face the trouble, or remain disconnected and invite trouble! Bigg Boss Nau comes with the promise of unlimited and unadulterated entertainment which will create a strong bond between viewers and the contestants fuelled by fun, empathy and, sometimes, sympathy."
