The show is expected to be launched next month with Nagarjuna hosting it for the third time in a row
The Bigg Boss Telugu fans are all ecstatic as the season 5 promo just got released and the host Nagarjuna promises to put an end to their boredom amidst the lockdown due to the pandemic. The most-awaited announcement was released by the Telugu entertainment channel Star Maa.
When the fourth season of Bigg Boss Telugu dropped its curtain down on December 2020 declaring Abhijeet Duddala as the winner, the hardcore show fans were expecting the next season soon, with their favourite host Nagarjuna again. Now that their wait is finally over after eight long months, they can’t contain their excitement.
The first season of the popular show premiered in July 2017 with Jr NTR as the host. The season two was hosted by Nani, following which Akkineni Nagarjuna took over. This will be the third time in a row that the stylish actor is hosting the show. The famous Big Boss house was set up at Lonavala for the first season, then at Annapurna Studios, Hyderabad for season 2 and other seasons.
The official logo of Bigg Boss season 5 was unveiled on August 1, through the official Twitter handle of Star Maa. The plan was to launch the season in June 2021 but unfortunately, it got delayed due to the pandemic.
If reports are to be believed, the fifth season will commence by September and Nagarjuna will continue to host. The makers had made it clear that the show will be following strict Covid-19 protocols. The organisers are said to be in the process of finalising the contestants. The contestants will be following a 14-day quarantine before making an entry to the Bigg Boss house. The show will be streamed on Star Maa as well as on Disney+Hotstar.
