An upcoming episode in the show will reveal a ‘panic room’ to punish inmates who break the rules inside the Bigg Boss house.
The walls of the stifling, tiny enclosure will come closing in onto the defaulting inmate, causing anxiety and trauma.
To worsen the effect, the temperature may be reduced to as less as 5 degrees celsius and the inmate will be made to wear a straitjacket that will not allow him/her to free the arms.
Viewers are aghast. “This is like going from bad to worse ... reality TV is really losing it,” says Daksh Singh, 28, a viewer
The channel has approached seven international celebrities to add foreign flavour, of which one will enter the house as a short-term guest:
Paris Hilton, hotel heiress
Julia Roberts, actor
Jackie Chan, actor
Mike Tyson, boxer
Padma Lakshmi, TV show host
Shane Warne, cricketer
Liz Hurley, actor
