Bigg Boss Kannada OTT is only hours away from unfolding and that too with a promise of being as riveting as ever. This would be the first digital iteration of the reality show in Kannada, following the trial and success in both Hindi and Tamil, and will premiere on Voot at 7 pm on August 6 with Kiccha Sudeep returning to his hosting duties.

The OTT version, regardless of its evolved format, is likely to carry the same ethos of the TV version. In the past, the vast Bigg Boss audience has witnessed many artists and personalities use the platform to overhaul their careers, thus enunciating that the infamous show withholds a lot of power and possibilities.

Speaking about the same at a recent press event in Bengaluru (ahead of the Bigg Boss Kannada OTT premiere), Kiccha Sudeep addressed the defining traits of the show and shared his views on what it can offer a contestant. When asked about the culture of the show, the Vikrant Rona actor said:

"Every individual regard their personal life as something very important: most of us don't appreciate when we are asked personal questions so imagine the scenario when your entire private life is captured by a camera and broadcast all around. And if someone's willing to actually do that, it would only mean that they are aware of the rewards that a platform like Bigg Boss offers - people transform once they enter the house. For instance, let's consider Vasuki Vaibhav. It isn't that he wasn't talented or skilled before but their careers took off to new heights after the Bigg Boss stint. Similarly with Shine (Shetty) and many others who have used the opportunity to transform their careers".

But does the will to succeed alone bring someone close to victory? Well, Sudeep reckons that aside from the desire to explore oneself, an inherent competitive spirit will take a contestant really far in the competition.

"You can't morph people into something they aren't - black can't be made into white, white can't become yellow, and so on. The Bigg Boss platform allows you to discover yourself but if a contestant is completely unwilling to change or work on themselves, there is nothing that I can do as a host. I can only try and nudge them in the right direction but that's about it: the onus is on them to make the best use of the opportunity. And if they still aren't keen on it, the audience will evict them at the press of a button - if you observe closely, you would find that competitive mindset being the common factor among all the winners so far," he added.
