Contestants will get to participate with their loved ones
While the tweet did not specify the nature of the couple, reports claim it is romantic couples that makers are looking for.
An Indian Express report quoted a source as saying, “Bigg Boss is one of the most watched shows across the world and the showrunners make an effort to bring something new for its viewers every year. While the partner angle was played during the ninth season themed- Double Trouble, this would be special, as for the first time, contestants will get to participate with their loved ones.”
Bigg Boss started as a celebrity reality show but it opened doors for commoners from the 10th season, where common man Manveer Gurjar even managed to take home the trophy. Last year, while Puneesh Sharma managed to reach the finale, nation’s favourite Shilpa Shinde emerged as the winner.
As for season 12 auditions, the details of the same will soon be uploaded on Voot.
One would need to register and then upload a video of themselves with their partners, on why they deserve to be on the show. The makers have clarified that it just doesn’t need to be spouses, but parents, siblings, co-workers or even friends would be allowed to audition together. Once chosen, they would be called upon for a personal interview for the final rounds.
