Junior NTR is all set to make his debut on the small screen on 16th July 2017, this Sunday 9 pm with his reality show, ‘Bigg Boss.’ The first episode of Tarak’s much-awaited TV show will be aired on a leading Telugu channel, much to the delight of his fans. Junior NTR’s Bigg Boss Is The ‘Most Expensive’ Telugu Show. The popular Telugu actor is the grandson of N T Rama Rao, the legendary actor, and former Andhra Pradesh chief minister.
The Telugu version of Bigg Boss will see NTR shooting on the same set where Salman Khan shot for the Hindi version of Bigg Boss in Mumbai. From NTR’s point of view, it is also a smart career move. Though he had two releases in 2016 in Nannaku Prematho and Janatha Garage, he will have only one release in Jai Lava Kusa towards the end of the year. Staying connected with the audience through another medium, therefore, will ensure he is not out of sight, out of mind.
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 sq ft area and nearly 750 people working on the project at any given point of time. In Bigg Boss Telugu, 12 celebrity contestants will stay together in one house, cut off from the outside world for 70 days and their lives will be monitored by 60 cameras.
In terms of remuneration, the grapevine has it that NTR, who is also a trained Kuchipudi dancer and playback singer, has been offered the highest ever remuneration offered ever to a Telugu actor to host a TV show. NTR will be charging a whopping Rs 50 lakh per episode, making his total remuneration Rs 25 crore.
According to reports, the probable participants are Adarsh, Archana, Dhanraj, Hari Teja, Jyothi, Kalpana, Katthi Kartheeka, Madhu Priya, Mumaith Khan, Mahesh Kathi, Sameer, Sampoornesh Babu, Shiva Balaji & Tejaswi Madivada.
