For decades now, I have always enjoyed hosting shows and now with ‘Bigg Boss OTT’… it will surely be over-the-top.”
He further added, “Bigg Boss OTT’ will undeniably have a lot more sensational and dramatic (content). I hope I can live up to the audience’s and my friends’ expectations, make Weekend Ka Vaar with the contestants an enjoyable affair in my own style and up the ante on the entertainment quotient. Wait for it!”
Karan Johar will host the show for the continual six weeks, which will premiere on August 8 on Voot. After the completion of the OTT telecast, the controversial reality show will shift to Colors with the inaugural of Season15 of “Bigg Boss”.
Meanwhile, Voot previously declared the release of ‘Bigg Boss OTT’ and the initial six weeks of this reality show will be available to audiences and will be on the go 24X7.
