Actor Salman Khan, who returns as a host for the sixth season of reality show Bigg Boss, says, though controversies form the part of the show but the winners have always been dignified.
"Through controversies contestants feel they can go ahead in the show. The participants who were in the Bigg Boss' house thought if they would fight they will be seen more on the show...publicity. But one must not forget that the winners on the show have always been dignified people," Salman told reporters here last evening at the press conference of the show.
Last year, when Mahek Chahel was one of the contestants on the show, there were reports that Salman had recommended her, considering that she had worked with him in superhit film 'Wanted'.
"I don't want to recommend anyone...I don't want to be biased and partial," the 'Dabangg' Khan stressed.
This time, however, Salman has promised that it would be a 'family' show.
"The show will now be aired at family time...prime time at 9 PM everyday. Until last year, the show used to start from 10.30 PM. Now we would connect with the whole family this time," he noted.
"During the last season, I had to intervene as the situation was out of control as I was getting feedback from everyone. I don't like to intervene," he said.
Salman, who is riding high on the success of his fourth consecutive blockbuster Ek Tha Tiger, this time wants common man to join him on Big Boss.
People are being asked to send an SMS or log on to the website of the Colors channel, which airs the show. They will have to participate in a contest to appear on Bigg Boss 6.
Also a parrot and fish will be the new elements in the Big Boss house this time.

Bigg Boss is looking for you
The upcoming sixth season of reality show Bigg Boss promises a twist this year.

For this edition of the show, Colors is inviting entries from viewers who wish to be part of the reality show. "With the aim of building audience interactivity, Bigg Boss 6 is reaching out to the aam aadmi, and thereby, reaching out to a larger cross-section of the audience. The show has a loyal viewer base and this campaign allows them to get closer to all the action of a reality show, besides interacting with other celebrities and host Salman Khan," says Manisha Sharma, weekend programming head, Colors.COMMON MAN ON BIGG BOSS
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.”
Couples’ retreat in Bigg Boss house
Reality show Bigg Boss has seen its share of controversies — from people hooking up to couples bickering and the usual yelling matches that happen between contestants. We have seen models, international artistes and famous faces from the TV and film world fight it out. It looks like the show is all set to beam this action into our living rooms again, with Bigg Boss season six.
Sources close to the development of the project say that celebrity couples are being considered this time around as well.
