The first promo for the upcoming ninth season of the mega-hit reality show Bigg Boss 9 was released online on Sunday evening.
This year, the show seems to have been rechristened Bigg Boss: Double Trouble. In the promo, Salman Khan returns as host and is seen peeping through a keyhole at a couple that are shown to be wearing the same shirt. He then proceeds to hurl a few choice catch-phrases at the camera in an inexplicable mock-Russian-KGB-agent accent.
It isn't explained in the promo, but it seems as though this season involves couples, a department this show excels in.
However, with many recent reports having said that the theme this year revolves around the concept of 'navarasa' — nine primary, dominant emotions that can be found in any work of art — it will be interesting to see how the two concepts will be combined, if at all.
According to a DNA report, the show is slated to start airing on October 11 and will have no extensions this time like last year's underwhelming Bigg Boss Halla Bol.
Watch the promo above.
