Akkineni Nagarjuna is one of the biggest stars in the Telugu film industry. He has been doing back to back films and also hosted Bigg Boss for the last four years. But this time, he will not be hosting the show as the makers are planning to rope a younger star from Tollywood and the plans are on for the same.

We had already reported that the makers of Bigg Boss have scrapped the OTT version as the feedback was not that great last year. Even the TRP ratings of the show were dull and this has prompted the makers to remove the OTT version. Nagarjuna hosted the OTT version last time and we have come to know exclusively that he made a handsome 20 crores with both the TV and OTT versions.

The makers were also very happy as Nagarjuna hosted the previous seasons quite well. But that is not the case this time as the tides have changed and the audience is already bored. Nagarjuna is yet to announce his new film and the word is that he will introduce a writer named Prasanna Kumar who gave the recent hit Dhamaka with Ravi Teja.

On the other hand, the Bigg Boss Telugu show will also change channels from Star Maa to Gemini. So, the makers are in full plans to bring in more popular stars on the show and revamp it. Last year, mostly, social media influencers were there and they did not create much impact and this even cost Nagarjuna his place as a host.
