Kichcha Sudeep has been hosting Bigg Boss Kannada for the last five years and has perfected the skills of the host. So, when on Sunday, the fifth season of Bigg Boss Kannada took off, Sudeep was at the top of his game. He kept the mood light and funny even as he went about welcoming and introducing each contestant into the newly designed house of Bigg Boss, reports Indian Express.

As the camera rolled, Sudeep began the show by humming a song from his 2004 film Ranga SSLC titled Manase Manase. He followed it up with a short speech, which in itself was quite a variant from the spirit of Bigg Boss, often accused of being voyeuristic. Sudeep added a philosophical dimension.

As is the convention, Sudeep took the viewers on a tour of Bigg Boss house, where all the contestants will be in the house for a little over three months, without technology and no contact with the outside world.

Viewers were informed that in this season, each contestant will be put through a weight-loss programme. In keeping with this goal, each contestants’ weight was checked by Sudeep at the time of their entry. He also promised that by the time they leave the show, they would weigh less.

What was different too was that Sudeep asked every contestant about their temperament, even suggesting that they should not get into any kind of a fist fight. Many would agree that this was almost a warning.

The report added that Sudeep had asked all contestants to act socially keeping in mind previous such behaviour. He also said that there was a possibility of cases being booked against those housemates who get involved in physical fights.
