Meanwhile it was a big thumbs up from the sponsors of the show, and host Salman Khan in his inimitable style did his bit to boost the equity of the three present. Said Nadia Chauhan, Joint Managing Director and Chief Marketing Officer – Parle Agro: “Bigg Boss, as a property, only seems to be getting bigger and better with every season.  Our association has not only helped us to cement a significant market position but also to create several innovative brand propositions.” This is the second year Appy Fizz has been presenting sponsor of the show.

Viewers will be thrilled to see the way these spaces are going to be used.  You will also see Salman Khan in a new avatar in terms of a host.

This season we will add another interesting spin to the drama with the introduction of a ‘Padosi’. The journey gets more fascinating this year when the contestants face unpredictable situations, which will add to the entertainment factor that the franchise is synonymous with.”
