Bigg Boss 13 launch episode highlights: Salman gushing over 'Punjab Ki Katrina' to Rashami on wedding rumours

Bigg Boss 13 has premiered finally today on Colors. The Salman Khan hosted show has introduced quite a few new elements this season adding a bit of 'teda-pan' to it. The premiere episode was full of exciting moments and one cannot wait to see how the camaraderie translates in the coming episodes. Well, before you take off or have happened to miss the fun-filled premiere, here's a quick recap and major highlights: Brace yourselves:

1. The 'express' concept: This season will see everything moving fast in terms of the pace of the game. Even though the contestants will have to survive the three months drill, the first finale will take place in the fourth week itself whereby one person will land themselves a ticket to finale based on their performance. However, that won't mean that it is full and final, the contestant will have to constantly try and keep the ticket with them with consistency in performance. 

2. BFF: Before you wonder what bff stands for here, let us break it for you. It means 'bed partner forever.' This season, each contestant has been given a coloured band which matches with another person with whom they have to share the beds. Yes, you read it right. This is going to be exciting for sure. 

3. Bigg Boss Contestant list: The 13 contestants who have entered the house are: Rashami Desai, Devoleena Bhattacharjee, Sidharth Shukla, Arti Singh, Daljiet Kaur, Koena Mitra, Asim Riaz, Paras Chhabra, Siddharth Dey, Abu Malik, Mahira Sharma, Shehnaaz Gill, Shefali Bagga. 

4. Devoleena saying she is not here for love: Making it loud and clear, Devoleena said that she is not here to find any sort of love or relationship. She is here to shed her image and just experiment a bit with her own self and surprise herself. On the other hand, her parents really wanted her to find someone. Ahem. 

5. Rashami Desai refuting marriage rumours: Rashami Desai has categorically denied rumours of her getting married to boyfriend Arhaan Khan on the show. She laughed off at the rumours and said that even she was shocked to read it but then she didn't take it seriously. On the other hand, contestants discussed the same and wondered if there is any strategy behind it. 

6. Shehnaaz GIll's innocent flirting leaves Salman Khan gushing: Shehnaaz Gill loses her calm as she watches Salman Khan. In innocence, Shehnaaz calls herself 'Punjab ki Katrina' leaving Salman really enchanted and gushing. Salman was clearly bowled seeing her endearing self. 

7. Daljiet Kaur's emotional rendezvous: Daljiet, who is currently a single mother, opened up on how separation with Shaleen Bhanot was a tough phase for her but she has only grown stronger since. She said that she is entering the house so that she can give a better future to her son. She is looking forward to the second innings in her life. 

8. Arti Singh entering with brother Krushna Abhishek. Comedian and actor Krushna Abhishek introduced his sister Arti Singh on the show. Their act was certainly one of the major highlights and we absolutely loved the camaraderie. Didn't we? 

Bigg Boss 13 will air on Colors every weekday at 10: 30 PM and Saturday and Sunday at 9 PM.
