Just like every other season, Bigg Boss Season 13 is expected to be bigger than ever. After a new location announcement earlier this year, the makers of the show have now revealed the first look of Salman Khan for the upcoming season. In a picture shared by Colors on their official Twitter account, Salman Khan can be seen donning a station master avatar that leaves us guessing what theme 2019 season will entail.
*Drum Roll* ?

As per the reports by a Mumbai Mirror, one of four promotional videos that Salman khan will shot for Season 13 have him seated in a cabin shaking from the tremors of trains passing by. The uncomfortable situation hints a fast-paced theme for this year’s Bigg Boss.
Moreover, the makers have also been mulling some major changes in the show’s format, including parting ways with commoner contestants this time. The developments come after last year’s “aam aadmi” contestants failed to impress unlike BB 11.
With that being said, the Bigg Boss 13 makers have committed themselves to the original celeb-theme for the 13th season. For the same reason, actors including Sandhya Mridul, Rashami Desai, Zareen Khan and Rajpal Yadav, among others, were rumoured to have been approached for Bigg Boss 13. However, the actors clarified, they are not a part of the show due to either not being approached or professional commitments.
Comedian Rajpal Yadav has confirmed that he was offered the show but he couldn’t participate. “Like every year, this year too I have been offered the show, but due to prior film commitments I won’t be able to do the show. I love watching the show and the format is also quite entertaining. But I am not doing this season. My best wishes to the people who will be a part of it,” he told ETimes.
Moreover, Salman’s Bharat co-star Sunil Grover when asked if he has been approached by the makers he said, “I wouldn’t like to be a part of Bigg Boss. I don’t know, never say never but ya… don’t know. I can’t be caged. I like to act, I like playing characters, I like to be a part of stories rather than fighting over food or petty things and winning the game. Oh, I can’t.”
Other celebs rumoured to be a part of the upcoming season include Jay Bhanushali, Mahhi Vij, Vivek Dahiya, Karan Patel, Dayanand Shetty, Karan Vohra, Devoleena Bhattacharjee and Manikarnika actor Ankita Lokhande.
Bigg Boss 13 will go live from September 29 till January 12, 2020.
