The much-loved controversial reality show will be back on tube from October 1, 2022.
In the latest round of Bigg Boss 16 promos, Salman Khan assumes the personas of each of these Bollywood baddies, including Gabbar Singh from Sholay, Kancha Cheena from Agneepath, and Mogambo from Mr. India.
In the most recent promo, Salman adopts the appearance of Amrish Puri's Mogambo by donning that recognisable bracelet and a black jacket with gold accents. He occupies the same white throne with crystal balls that Mogambo did in the 1987 Anil Kapoor and the late Sridevi film Mr. India.
Salman adds his own spin to the movie's famous quote—"Mogambo khush hua" (Mogambo is happy now) and adds, "Mogambo ab kabhi khush nahi hoga kyunki ab sabko darr lagega Bigg Boss se, Bigg Boss 16 game badlega kyunki Bigg Boss ab khud khelega." (Mogambo will never be content since Bigg Boss has made everyone afraid. Bigg Boss 16 will alter the game. Bigg Boss will now perform as himself.)
His appearance in Sanjay Dutt's Kancha Cheena look from the 2012 film Agneepath, starring Hrithik Roshan, Priyanka Chopra, and the late Rishi Kapoor, is featured in another promo. The superstar says, "Kancha Cheena ke Mandwa par bhi sirf Bigg Boss ka khauf chaayega (Kancha Cheena's Mandwa will also experience the horror of Bigg Boss)."
The renowned character of Gabbar Singh, played by the late Amjad Khan in the 1975 action movie Sholay with Amitabh Bachchan, Dharmendra, the late actor Sanjeev Kumar, Hema Malini, and Jaya Bachchan, was portrayed by Salman before in the first promo.
He recited the well-known dialogue from the movie in a new way, saying: "50-50 kos door jab bachcha raat ko royega to maa kahegi, beta so ja varna Bigg Boss aa jayega" (Even from 50 kilometres away, if a child cries at night, the mother would tell him or her to go to sleep or Bigg Boss will arrive).
Bigg Boss 16 will premiere on Colors and Voot Select on October 1 at 9:30 p.m.
