After the success of the popular reality show, Bigg Boss, the producers, Endemol India, are now planing to launch a film that will be based on the reality show.
The makers, along with Select Media Holdings Pvt Ltd (the film production arm), will jointly produce a dark comedy. It will be
based on the experiences the contestants have had in the Bigg Boss house, over the last six seasons. Slated to go on the floors in early 2013, the film is currently in its scripting stage.
“Globally, this formula (of converting hit shows into films) has worked well. For instance, shows like Sex & The City have done well as films too. In the Bigg Boss film, we are going to experiment with the horror-comedy genre,” says Nitin Tej Ahuja, director, Select Media Holdings Pvt Ltd.
