With Aryavardhan Guruji being deemed as the 'entertainment factor' (likely to remain so in the TV edition) and Rakesh Adiga being the level-headed kind, roles are already defined for the OTT batch who now await the names of their competition.

Mangaluru boy Roopesh Shetty has had a dream run so-far on Bigg Boss Kannada. Not only has the popular Tulu actor been promoted to the upcoming television Season 9 of Bigg Boss but he was adjudged the topper of the OTT season, all by virtue of audience votes. And the same audience support has sustained Roopesh in the Bigg Boss house all along and never really let the threat of elimination loom around him: however, does he enter Bigg Boss Kannada Season 9 as the favorite to win it?
Now that's the big question that can only unravel once Season 9 kicks off on September 24. For those unversed with the updated format of the television season, the new lot of 18 contestants will be an equal mix of 'veterans' and 'newbies' (Praveenaru and Naveenaru, as the makers put it) - with Rakesh Adiga, Roopesh Shetty, Saanya Iyer, and Aryvardhan Guruji already confirmed, the patrons of the show are now super keen to know who the other 14 are.
Based on the most recent promo of Bigg Boss Season 9, Prashanth Sambargi, Anupama Gowda, and Deepika Das are likely to make their way back into the house but one will have to wait till September 24 for an official confirmation.
Therefore, in this context, Roopesh Shetty & Co. will begin the Season 9 proceedings with a headstart, having already built rapport with one another. Both Roopesh and Rakesh Adiga have had little trouble in making it to the top 4 of Bigg Boss Kannada OTT and with the former sharing a close bond with fellow housemate Saanya Iyer, one could expect them to all leverage the existing dynamics.
With Aryavardhan Guruji being deemed as the 'entertainment factor' (likely to remain so in the TV edition) and Rakesh Adiga being the level-headed kind, roles are already defined for the OTT batch who now await the names of their competition. On the other hand, it would be interesting to see the entire lineup of contestants and whether, or not, some of the past favourites make a glorious return.
Fans' encore, based on multiple reports, has requested for the jodi of Araving KP and Divya Uruduga to come back together to Season 9 and should anything to that effect take place, one can expect a rollicking season in store. More updates to follow soon.
