The show’s jungle theme has already created a stir. The house has been designed to fit the new concept. Many celebrities, like Shefali Jariwala, have voiced their enthusiasm for the new theme, which is quite “hatke” in comparison to prior seasons.
The reality show will air for the first time on October 2 at 9.30 p.m. Salman Khan will eventually disclose and introduce all of the candidates to the audience.
