Jr NTR is the host in the Telugu version of Bigg Boss which opened on Sunday.

The Telugu version of reality show Bigg Boss went on air on Sunday amid high expectations. As the show’s host, making his television debut, NTR was at his best and totally owned his part and left a lasting impact. The show features 14 participants - ranging from controversial actors to singers to television anchors and even a popular film critic. The list of participants includes actor Archana, Mumaith Khan, Sameer, Prince, singer Madhu Priya, actor Sampoornesh Babu, singers Jyothi and Kalpana, film critic Mahesh Kathi, anchor Kathi Karthika, actor Siva Balaji, television artist Hari Teja, actors Aadarsh Balakrishna and Dhanraj.

The contestants brought together for 70 days, surrounded by 60 cameras and cut off from the outside world in 1 BIGG house. Since the launch of the first reveal promo, Bigg Boss Telugu has already created a huge buzz in the Telugu states. The reveal promo has reached more than 55 million viewers i.e. nearly 3/4th of the viewership universe, in just 7 days of its run on the Star Maa network. On Digital, Bigg Boss Telugu promos were trending nationwide on social media platforms, with a huge number of shares, reaching millions.

The show is bringing many firsts to the Telugu entertainment space. It is the most expensive show to ever be created in Telugu television. It has one of the largest sets, with more than 10,000 square feet area and nearly 750 people working on the project at any given point of time. The show is unique because there is no script and the traditional word “cut” is never uttered by the director. The cameras - 60 of them, will never stop rolling for the entire season! According to sources, the show promises to be a game changer for Telugu Television, like NTR had said.
