Hard to believe that it is a matter of only two weeks before Bigg Boss OTT starts streaming on Voot. That said, we kinda needed this to happen after the phenomenally drab year that we have had so far. Thankfully, the Bigg Boss makers have been taking notes and are currently working hard to make this one hell of a show. For starters, we have a new format, a new platform, and also, a new host. For the unversed, Karan Johar is all set to host Bigg Boss OTT before Salman Khan takes over for the show’s TV version six weeks later. Can’t say anything about you but the new development has us hella excited. Here are the five things that we are anticipating now that KJo has decided to be a part of India’s biggest reality show:
“Ok, here I am !!! The host of #biggbossOTT @voot @vootselect #biggbossottonvoot all the fun, craziness and over-the-topness will be unleashed soooooon!!!! Watch this space for more !!!!❤️❤️❤️,” Karan wrote while making the big announcement on social media this weekend. This seems only fitting given that he does have a penchant for all things OTT. This and the fact that Salman Khan has already announced that “Is baar ka Bigg Boss, itna crazy, itna over-the-top, TV par ban ho jayega.”
We are talking about the Koffee With Karan host here. The filmmaker certainly has a prowess for pulling out secrets like it is no biggie and we totally expect that to happen during Bigg Boss OTT as well. From rapid-fire weekends to romantic questionnaires, nothing seems to be off-limits as of now. Rest assured, tea is gonna get spilled and we are all set to sip it hot!
Anyone who has seen Karan in action knows that this man’s heart yearns for drama. Well, so does ours! Long things short–we expect nothing less than some solid Dharma Productions level drama. With Fabulous Lives of Bollywood Wives, we have already seen how good Karan happens to be at sowing discord in the most subtle way possible. If you ask us, he is like little a puppet master who knows how to direct things towards the most dramatic of circumstances. Well, good ‘coz we want exactly that!
Karan Johar is fundamentally opposite to who Salman Khan happens to be as a person. While Salman’s idea of hosting the show might revolve around repudiating the contestants where they go wrong, Karan is sure to take a different approach. Well, we are all for it. NGL, the entire Salman bashing the contestants during the Weekend Ka War was getting quite boring and anxiety-provoking anyway.
The past year has been quite a lot for Karan Johar himself. From the nepotism debate to the Bollywood drug nexus controversy and the recent Kartik Aaryan fall-out, he can definitely use a palate cleanser now. Perhaps Bigg Boss OTT is going to be exactly that. We are hoping that along with the contestants, we get to see Karan’s side of reality as well during the show.
So fam, all you all set to stream Bigg Boss OTT?
