The makers of Bigg Boss have released a new promo for Bigg Boss 16. In it, host and actor Salman Khan dons the look of Amrish Puri's Mogambo, wearing a black jacket with gold detailing and that iconic bracelet. He sits on a white throne with crystal balls, just like Mogambo did in the 1987 movie Mr India, featuring Anil Kapoor and the late Sridevi.
Khan gives his own twist to the immortal line from the movie — "Mogambo khush hua"(Mogambo is pleased) — by saying, "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 is not going to be happy and everyone will be scared of Bigg Boss. With Bigg Boss 16, the game will change. Now, Bigg Boss will play himself)."
In another promo, he appears as Sanjay Dutt's Kancha Cheena from Agneepath (2012) starring Hrithik Roshan, Priyanka Chopra and Rishi Kapoor. He says, "Kancha Cheena ke Mandwa par bhi sirf Bigg Boss ka khauf chaayega (Kancha Cheena's Mandwa will also see the terror of Bigg Boss)."
In the first promo, Khan appeared as Gabbar Singh, the iconic villain played by Amjad Khan in the 1975 action film Sholay starring Amitabh Bachchan, Dharmendra, late actor Sanjeev Kumar, Hema Malini, and Jaya Bachchan.
Bigg Boss 16 is set to start on October 1 at 9.30 pm on Colors and will be streaming on Voot.
