Inspired by the Dutch TV series Bigg Brother, Bigg Boss India is a reality show that began in 2006 and has become a hit in Indian households ever since. Bigg Boss shows the day-to-day life of a group of celebrities (and even commoners these days) trapped in a well-provided house together, away from the real world. They are supposed to finish tasks together and live harmoniously till they get evicted from the house based on voting and their performance. The one to stay till the end wins the show and takes home a hefty prize money, along with a newfound fandom and popularity.
So far, sixteen successful seasons of Bigg Boss have aired and the seventh season is ongoing. 16 celebrities have taken home the prestigious tag of being a Bigg Boss winner, and they all agree that life has never been the same. You gain wisdom, patience, popularity, money, and much more when you leave the show.
