HOST WITH THE MOST

After playing the host of “Kaun Banega Crorepati,” the Indian version of “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?” in ‘Slumdog Millionaire’, Indian star Anil Kapoor will be the new host of “Bigg Boss OTT,” a Hindi-language adaptation of the “Big Brother” format. The third digital edition of the reality show starts on June 21 on Billionaire Mukesh Ambani‘s JioCinema Premium streamer. The first season was hosted by an Indian media personality Karan Johar and the second by Bollywood star Salman Khan.

“’Bigg Boss OTT’ and I are a dream team. We are both young at heart; people often say – jokingly – that I reverse the aging process, but Bigg Boss is – seriously – ageless. It feels a bit like going back to school and trying something new and exciting,” said Kapoor. “Unscripted reality has something for everyone: laughter, drama and surprising twists, and I can’t wait to give it my own flavor.”

There are several Indian TV versions of ‘Bigg Boss’, all hosted by popular movie stars. Salman Khan has hosted the Hindi language version on Colors TV from 2012. The Kannada language version on Colors Kannada and JioCinema digital, is hosted by Sudeep; the Tamil-language version, on Star Vijay and Disney+ Hotstar by Kamal Haasan; the Telugu language version on Nagarjuna’s Star Maa and Disney+ Hotstar; the Marathi language version on Colors Marathi and JioCinema by Riteish Deshmukh; and the Malayalam language version on Asianet and Disney+ Hotstar by Mohanlal.
