One of the nation's biggest controversial reality shows, Bigg Boss season 12 will have its grand premiere on September 16, 2018. Hosted by Salman Khan, the show will once again take the late-night slot of 10:30 pm on weekdays.
Apparently, due to some creative changes, the channel has shifted the release date ahead to September. The show will now wrap up by end of December. Salman, who is busy shooting for his multi-starrer Bharat, will juggle between the shoots. The work on the new set has already begun.
Talking about the contestants, here are 13 celebs who have reportedly been approached for the show. Take a look:
