A lavish set for the Bigg Boss contestants is erected every year based on a unique theme of the season.
The Bigg Boss house, which is fortified by high boundary walls, comprises state-of-art facilities including a gym among other things for the housemates.
Bigg Boss, which is based on the format of Dutch show Big Brother, has been hosted by Salman Khan starting season 4 till the last season 12. The first three seasons were hosted by Arshad Warsi, Shilpa Shetty (also the winner of UK's Celebrity Big Brother) and Amitabh Bachchan in that order.
