The opening of the show was handled by Salman Khan dancing to his song “slow Motion” from his most recent movie- Bharat, with Katrina Kaif. He then introduced the audience to the first contestant of the show- Sidharth Shukla. He is a Television actor and model and has previously worked in Serials like Balika Vadhu as the main lead. Sidharth shook his hips to the song, Naa Jaane Kaha se aaya hain.
The contestant next up, was Indian writer, Siddhartha Dey. To introduce him, a video montage of Farah Khan and Neha Kakkar was set up, to praise him and his accomplishments. The singer, Himesh Reshammiya, too had some great things to say about the writer. Later, the third contestant introduced was Paras Chabbra. He is an Indian actor who won the previous season of Splitsville. He was supported by his mother and brother. Salman Khan asked him whether he wanted to be the “Ram or Ravan” of the house. Paras quotes,
“i will play ravan who has ram in his heart”Paras Chabbra on the character he will play inside the house
The second last male contestant to be introduced by Salaman Khan was Abu Malik, Anu Malik’s younger brother. He was praised by his singer elder brother and Armaan Malik as his “craziest uncle”. The last male contestant of the 13th season of Big Boss is Asim Riaz- who was called beautiful by Salman Khan, sending the crowd in laughter.
Finally, the first female contestant was introduced. Mahira Sharma, best known for her role in Kundali Bhagya, the Indian TV soap opera, expressed her desire to win this season of the most awaited show. She is also the first one to enter the house, and the first one to receive bathroom duty. She chose Azim Riaz as her partner and labelled him her brother.
Devoleena Bhattacharya was this season’s 7th contestant and 2nd female contestant. She danced to the tunes of Aashiq Banaya Aapne. She is best known for her role as “gopi Bahu”. She also expresses her distaste for falling in love inside the four walls of the house and has been assigned kitchen duty for breakfast and lunch.
A cooking competition was held which was judged by Devoleena herself and pitted Abu Malik and Sidharth Shukla against each other. The contest was won by Sidharth who became Devoleena’s partner for her kitchen duty.
The next contestant, Rashmi Desai, also gets kitchen duty for evening tea and dinner. She also has to share a bed with Sidharth Shukla and makes him her kitchen partner. Salman Khan hilariously points out that they are BFFs- Bed Friends Forever.
Coming up next, Salman introduces two more contestants, News anchor Shalini Bagga and Punjabi star Shehnaaz Gill together. Shehnaaz Gill gets Rationing duty along with Paras Chhabra. Beyond that, Shefali is assigned garden and pool duty along with Siddhartha Dey.
Daljit Kaur is the next contestant to enter the new season. She is a single mother and expresses her never-ending love for her son. She also talks about being ready to finally find love in her life and settle down with a “suljha hua” person. She calls this season of Big boss a new chapter in her life. The single mom, danced with her son, Jayden and entered the house, only to be assigned bedroom duty along with Sidharth Shukla.
Ameesha Patel, then gives her performance and is the designated landlady. She then proceeds to provide gossip about the chosen contestants. She calls Paras a casanova and talks about the rumoured fling between Rashmi and Siddharth.
The next contestant is Koena Mitra who is given household task and chooses Siddharth Shukla as her partner. Siddharth has already been assigned to bedroom duty with Daljit and Kitchen duty with Devoleena. In a funny incident, Siddharth Shukla and Paras Chabbra perform a pole dance to please the audience. Koena changed her decision on her household duty partner and chose Asim Riaz instead.
Next up was Arti Singh who performs a dance item on the stage. They dance along to the tunes of “Tukur Tukur”. She is a huge fan of Salman Khan. Arti, who is known for being Govinda’s niece, and Krushna’s sister, says she is participating to get out of their shadow. Krushna who accompanied her to support his sister told everyone that she was “khatarnak”.
Finally, Siddharth Shukla gets the maximum tasks while Abu Malik gets none- he hence receives the disadvantage ring which he will have to carry inside the house. Salman Khan teases Abu Malik about leaving the house, and when he actually tries to leave, it is revealed that he was only joking. The details surrounding the disadvantage band haven’t been revealed. Salman Khan hands in BFF bands to the men of the show and they are told to bond inside the house.
Finally, everyone enters the house. Siddharth shares with Devoleena that he has never entered a kitchen in his life. The boys match their bands and introduce each other. When they enter, Big Boss speaks up for the first time and announces that the girls will have a special role in the men contestants- they will get to decide their fate. But nothing further is mentioned.
This time, Big Boss is functioning differently- it will be more fast paced and have a different method of elimination.
