From a comfortable life to a life with limited amenities and entertainment avenues - reality show "Bigg Boss" shows the transition of a celebrity into a common man, says actor Salman Khan, who is hosting the upcoming, sixth season of the show.

"A celebrity goes in and slowly becomes a common man... the whole transition of having a spot boy, a hair dresser, a driver and then being suddenly all alone. For the first few days, you see the celebrity, but then he becomes carefree," Salman, who is hosting the show for the third time, said here.

The new season, set to go on air on Oct 7, will have new features - a fish, a talking parrot and a common man among celebrity contestants. The common man will be chosen on several criteria.

"The common man will have a personality. He will be an achiever. He must have done something good," Salman told IANS.

The 46-year-old says the best thing about "Bigg Boss", where celebrity contestants are locked in a secluded house under camera surveillance for three months, is that it reveals people's true personality.

"I like that eventually everyone's original personality comes out. When people play games, you get carried away. You do things which you never thought you could do, you cross all your thresholds. Many people think that once you go inside and fight with everyone, you might win 'Bigg Boss'. But the fact is that whoever has won 'Bigg Boss' are very dignified people," he said.

According to Salman, everyone enjoys watching controversies and fights, but in limits.

"To an extent everyone likes and enjoys it but when it goes overboard it becomes irritating. At 11 p.m. if someone is shouting, you won't want to watch," he said.

The show, which has earlier been caught in controversy over use of abusive language, has been given the prime time slot of 9 p.m. and it will be suitable for family viewing this time.

Salman says that no matter how much they try to make sure everything is controlled and is apt for family viewing, what goes inside the house cannot be controlled by them.

"I don't know who is going in, so I don't know how they are. If some of them don't get along, it will create a problem. How do you know how they will react in a situation?

"A person will be nice the first few days, but in three months, you get to know how the person actually is and how he thinks. At the most, they (the channel) will remove the bad words, but in the house, we can't say don't say this or do this," he said.

"We can't control anyone. All we can do is not to show it on TV. What you see on TV is very edited, most decent clips are shown," he added.
