One of the most controversial TV shows in India, Bigg Boss promises a lot of action for the viewers and keeps them at the edge of the seat. Here are few new things that you will see in the new season of Bigg Boss:
The first teaser of Bigg Boss 11 featuring Salman Khan hinted that this time the show might be based on the theme of ‘neighbours’. According to a report by The Indian Express, the participants will be divided into two groups, Gharvale and Padosis. However, after a few episodes, all the contestants might live in the same house.

3. Salman Khan will also be the peacemaker
Unlike the previous seasons, Salman Khan will also act as a peacemaker between the gharwalas and the padosis. “We all have neighbours of every kind and every hue. Some of us have wonderful memories of them and some of us may have not so good ones. Bigg Boss is one show that the country awaits with bated breath along with my movies; and like every year, I’m thrilled to welcome the new contestants into the Bigg Boss house,” he said, as per IE.
Even though the design of this year’s house hasn’t been revealed yet, just like every year, it will have a kalkothri (jail) which will be used to punish the contestants.
