Bigg Boss is undoubtedly one of the most popular reality shows across the globe, and it has successfully traversed boundaries and had its own regional versions in India. While the Hindi version was hosted by Amitabh Bachchan and Salman Khan, the Kannada version was hosted by Sudeep. It wasn’t long ago that it was announced that actor-filmmaker Kamal Haasan will do the honours of hosting the Tamil version of the show. We have exclusively learnt that the show will also be made in Telugu and Jr. NTR, the actor known for films such as Yamadonga and Janatha Garage, has been roped in by the creators of the show.
“It’s true that NTR has been approached with the offer and he has given his nod, mainly because the show will give him an opportunity to reach every single Telugu household. He will shoot for the show as soon as he wraps up his portion on his next film, Jai Lava Kusa,” a source close to NTR told HT, and added the star has been signed for a never heard before deal.
In the film, he plays triple role and will be seen romancing Nivetha Thomas and Raashi Khanna. For one of his roles, NTR will be seen wearing prosthetic and his look is being handled by Hollywood make-up artist Vance Hartwell, popular for his work in films such as The Lord of the Rings trilogy and Shutter Island. The look of the antagonist’s role has already gone viral. NTR will wear prosthetic make up for this character and he will speak with a stutter. It’s going to be a very interesting character with a menacing side and audiences are in for a surprise.
