Bigg Boss Kannada Season 9 was kicked-off amid great fanfare on September 24 with host Kiccha Sudeep ushering in all the new 18 contestants. With the format revised and tweaked for more excitement and drama, wherein 5 of the former contestants, also known as praveenaru or veterans, formed one-half of the lot along with the 4 Bigg Boss Kannada OTT finalists (Rakesh Adiga, Roopesh Shetty, Saanya Iyer, and Aryavardhan Guruji), the focus was mainly on the new entrants. As expected, the showrunners included an array of popular small-screen artists such as Mayuri Kyatari, Amulya Gowda, and others to make this an exciting mix. 

However, the inclusion of social media content creator Nawaz has surprised many. Nawaz, for the unversed, is popular for quirky movie reviews and his undying love for Kannada cinema and although he enjoys a credible following on social media, many netizens have reckoned that he still doesn't deserve a spot in a high-profile show like Bigg Boss. Soon after his introduction into the show, comments came pouring in about Nawaz's credibility and how one could become a Bigg Boss contestant simply by posting viral content.

"Don't they have more talented people in Karnataka?" wrote one user in his comment. "Stop Bigg Boss right away," wrote another!

And as far as this iteration of Bigg Boss is concerned, this isn't the first instance of fans expressing annoyance over the selection. At the beginning of the OTT edition, many were perplexed by the inclusion of Sonu Gowda as a contestant and even urged the makers to eliminate her at the earliest. However, Sonu would wade through all the negativity and survive till the finale of the week, missing the chance to qualify for Season 9 only by a whisker. So, does that mean 'Saik Nawaz' holds a good chance of winning the show?

Well, a lot depends on he fares in the opening week and breaks the ice with fellow contestants. Being relatively lesser-known could serve Nawaz an advantage, considering that many have progressed to the later stages of the show by remaining under the radar throughout. And yet, the same factor can very well prove to be his undoing with other contestants rooting for one another and snubbing the stranger that he is currently. All eyes on your TV screens now!
