Bigg Boss 16 unique format
Since the premiere of Bigg Boss 16, the show has started gaining immense popularity due to its unprecedented format and the theme this year is Circus.
A lot of changes were seen in the format from the beginning and the first blow for the fans was replacing the “wake up song” with a “wake up anthem” in which the contestants are seen singing the Bigg Boss anthem in the morning.
However, this season is very unique apart from the rest and fans are going GAGA as there are no aggressive tasks given to the contestants unlike other seasons and the fights taking place in the house are very organic.
The most interesting feature of this season is “Bigg Boss” himself interacting and mocking the contestants from time to time and this is a never seen avatar of Bigg Boss. More than a mentor, unlike other seasons Bigg Boss is more like a friend to the contestants of this unique season.
There is also a new shift seen in the weekend ka vaar this year, in the earlier seasons the weekend ka vaar used to be aired on Saturday and Sunday at 9:00 pm whereas this year the weekend ka vaar is aired on Friday at 10:00 pm and Saturday at 9:00 pm.
This is also the first season of Bigg Boss where there are 16 contestants in the house after 3 months. Vikas Manaktala is the only wildcard entry in the season so far as a new face and another is the ex-contestant Sreejita De who reentered the house after being eliminated once.

After all the twists and turns on the “Shanivar ka vaar” be it from the rumors of Sajid Khan getting eliminated from Abdu Rozik leaving the house on Saturday for professional reasons, the fans had enough drama.
