Bigg Boss 2 was the 2008 second season of the Indian reality TV programme Bigg Boss. It began airing on 21 August 2008 on Colors. Shilpa Shetty replaced Arshad Warsi as host of the show.[1] Fourteen handpicked housemates entered during the launch and were described as newsmakers rather than celebrities, though the majority of the contestants were associated with Bollywood or Indian TV channels and other realities shows.[2] The housemates, considered strangers for each other, spent 98 days or nearly 14 weeks locked out together under one roof under the 24×7 supervision of 32 cameras fitted around the Bigg Boss house at Lonavala, a hill station about 100 km east of Mumbai.

On the second day of the show, the British guest on exchange in the house, Jade Goody, walked out of the Bigg Boss house due to the revelation that she had developed cancer.[3] On Day 30 of the show, an additional entry to the house was made in the form of Diana Hayden, who was the fifteenth contestant of the reality game show.[4] The show topped the rating charts in its last week due to a voluntary exit by a popular housemate, Rahul Mahajan.

The season lasted for 98 continuous days in total,[2] ending with the finale on 22 November 2008. Ashutosh Kaushik emerged as the winner with an award of Rs. 1 crore. Raja Chaudhary was the runner-up of the show. Rahul Mahajan won the Aveo UVA car as he was selected as the Bada Dilwala of the show.

Housemates Rahul Mahajan and Sambhavana Sheth returned to compete in Bigg Boss Halla Bol. They became the third and fourth housemates to be evicted, on Day 21 and 24 respectively.

Shilpa Shetty became the new host for the series.

Sana Wadiwala[edit]

Sana is a twin-sister of house-mate Alina where both are identical twins. At the end of week five on day 33 when Alina was later evicted from the house Bigg Boss introduced Sana into the house for a while by replacing Alina. She was to impersonate Alina and if she could do so for a whole day Bigg Boss announced that she may be introduced into the house as a regular house-mate beside Alina. Sana's entry remained short-lived as her impersonation was quickly identified by the house-mates.[27]
