Bigg Boss, the reality show is very popular across languages. In Telugu, NTR kicked off the first season and it became a rage with the Telugu audience. For the last four years, Akkineni Nagarjuna has been hosting the show and the sixth season was concluded just a few weeks back. But sadly, the last season did not go the way the makers wanted.

Two years back, the makers also started an OTT version which Nagarjuna himself hosted it. The response was not that great and the low buzz continued for this year's TV version as well. So, there is a buzz going on in the tinsel town that the makers are in plans to ditch the OTT version this year. As this year's show did not get proper TRP ratings, they have taken a call and discussions about the same are on as of now.

Also, Star Maa was producing the show until now and for the next season, Gemini TV will be taking over. Nagarjuna will be removed as the host of the show and a younger superstar from Telugu cinema will be brought in for the new season. Also, the makers have decided to have more film celebs next season rather than social media influencers who did not fetch the show much popularity this season.


A number of actors have redefined their careers after entering the Bigg Boss show in Telugu. On the other hand, ardent fans of the show want either NTR or Nani to host the show to bring back the show's lost glory. The Bigg Boss team is trying hard to re-invent the show and the removal of the OTT version might be the first step towards it. Let's see what happens.
