After competing 10 successful seasons, the show-makers have now started the selection process for the 11th season. In Bigg Boss 10 celebrities competed against non-celebrities for the top prize. Noida-based Manveer Gurjar (from team non-celebs) won the winner's trophy. Bigg Boss 11 will follow a similar format for the contestants.
Meanwhile, the first season of Bigg Boss Tamil, which will be hosted by superstar Kamal Haasan, will go on air from June 25.
