Bollywood PR guru Dale Bhagwagar had earlier suggested that Bigg Boss “incorporate teens and children to increase its fan base with gen next,” and also that “the show can have two separate Houses for celebs and the common man”.
This week, the public relations expert has come up with another proposal which might surprise many. When asked how the show could further increase its connect with the common man, Dale suggests, “Bigg Boss could start having tickets at a token amount and let a select group of kids and teens visit the House for a day from time to time and then come out and interact with its megastar host Salman Khan as well as Radhe the parrot. And yes, the cute fish too.” Now that’s a fantabulous suggestion indeed.
For the record, Dale Bhagwagar has handled the media affairs for some of India’s most scandalous celebrities. While handling the personal PR for Shilpa Shetty through the thick and thin of controversies with Jade Goody during Big Brother, he has also looked after the publicity for various names who have participated on Bigg Boss from time to time.
These include contestants like Rakhi Sawant, Kashmera Shah, Sambhavna Seth, Sherlyn Chopra, Pooja Misrra, Diana Hayden, Shamita Shetty, Vindu Dara Singh, Zulfi Syed, Salil Ankola and Amar Upadhyay.
Even Pakistani starlet Veena Malik is said to have been invited on Bigg Boss because of a controversy with one of Dale’s earlier clients; actress Neetu Chandra. On the show, Veena attracted further notoriety when she cootchie-cooed with Ashmit Patel, another of the same publicist’s clients during Bigg Boss.
