Superstar Salman Khan flagged off a Bigg Boss 6 bus, which will take people on a ride to the location of the show in Lonavala. People will be able to see live scenes from the house at the production control units set up there.

"I am lucky that I get to see all this up-close. But those who watch it on TV, even they must be wanting to see these celebrities. Such people can come here and take a tour of the bus," the 46-year-old, who hosts the reality show, said here Friday at the launch of the bus.

The sets of the show are in Lonavala, "a beautiful place, a tourist destination", according to Salman.

The bus will charge Rs.2,000 per person, and all the amount collected through the tours, will be donated to Salman's NGO Being Human.

"Come and be a part of our show, experience what we are experiencing. Now, the whole ticket money and not just some part of it will go to the Being Human foundation," he said.

However, Salman does not want people to be under any misconception about his presence on the bus.

"People will not be misguided. Please don't be under the misconception that you would see me if you travel in this bus. But you will see many others," Salman said.

Bigg Boss 6 kicked off Oct 7 with 15 contestants locked up in the house. Bhojpuri actor Dinesh Yadav was the first to be voted out off the house Friday.

Salman Khan has always been a trendsetter. Whether it’s his long hair from Tere Naam (2003), Being Human tees and more recently, or the chequered scarf from Ek Tha Tiger, everything has been copied by his fans. For his next TV outing with reality show Bigg Boss season 6, he will be seen sporting a French beard and a new wardrobe and has even shot the promos in this avatar.

Salman’s sister Alvira Agnihotri and designer Ashley Rebello have ensured that the star looks hot on the small screen. Rebello spills the beans on Sallu’s latest style, saying, "Salman Khan's look is more formal as compared to the previous seasons. He will sport a more structured look with a mix of two-button suits, jackets in colours such as lemonade yellow, mustard and salmon pink, and a lot of black shirts with trendy ties. Also, he will be seen flaunting a brand new element, which will create a rage.” But the designer stays mum on it claiming that it’s a surprise, which will be revealed later. CHECK IT OUT

Now, kids and teens in Bigg Boss?
The drama gets bigger; the ages, small. The upcoming season six of reality show Bigg Boss is likely to see children and teenagers be part of the bickering in the house. The reports have sparked a debate on whether it is okay to involve children in a show that is high on glamour, theatrics and politics, and requires confinement for months in a house with strangers. Ex-inmates say it’s a bad idea.

“I don’t think it’s a good idea at all. The purpose of the show is to put the housemates under such extreme physical, mental, emotional stress that they crumble, thus providing drama and content. I don’t think it’s correct to put a child through this,” says actor Ashmit Patel, who was an inmate in season 4. Afghan beauty Vida Samadzai, an inmate in the show’s fifth season, says, “I wouldn’t want fragile teens or innocent children to be a part of this war zone.” READ ON
