With the upcoming season of Bigg Boss, Salman Khan and the show's creators plan to provide a one-of-a-kind experience for the show's viewers. All we know so far is that before entering the Bigg Boss house, the competitors will have to reside in a jungle. The contestants will have to struggle and fight for every ounce of comfort, which is a first in the reality show's history. The producers released a BTS video on Sunday in which the audience is taken behind the scenes of the ad shot. Salman closes the video by promising a "crazier" and "larger" season.
The show is all set to begin in October, which will be hosted by Salman Khan for which he is expected to draw Rs 350 crore for 14 weeks. This will make Rs 25 crores per week for the actor who has been hosting it for the past 11 seasons.

This vooping amount makes Salman Khan the highest-paid host of the reality show in the industry which was earlier almost Rs 2.5 crore from season 4 to 6. Later for the 7th Season, the amount was doubled, and then in season 13, it went on to become Rs 13 crore per week.
While the full list of confirmed competitors has yet to be revealed, Bigg Boss OTT entrant Pratik Sehajpal has been confirmed as the first Bigg Boss 15 housemate. During the Bigg Boss OTT finale, Karan Johar offered the housemates the opportunity to choose up a briefcase containing a ticket to the Bigg Boss 15 house. Pratik took the suitcase from the counter and confirmed his participation in the Salman Khan show.
