Started in 2006, this reality show borrowed the format of British reality show, Bigg Brother. The show has rolled out nine seasons and one spin-off version since then. This TRP-churner is one of the most controversial shows on Indian television and its TRPs have stayed on a constant high since Salman Khan took over as the anchor. According to the format, a number of contestants enter a purpose-built house and are isolated from rest of the world during the show’s duration. Every week, housemates nominate their peers for eviction. Those who receive the most nominations face a public vote.
