Bigg Boss Telugu Budget 45 Cr!!


Big Boss Telugu Budget

The reports of NTR Jr making his debut on small screen as the host of Bigg Boss Telugu turned official on Tuesday after the star himself announced the big news on social media. With a star like NTR taking the mantle, Star Maa is splurging money to make this show look as grand as possible.

Star Maa, which has faced a setback in the form of the latest season of MEK, is investing a whopping R 45 crore on the first season of Bigg Boss Telugu. Dolling tout such high sum on a Telugu TV show spanning just three months (from July to September) can be termed as a new record.

Although the number is not made official, it is certain that lion’s share of this show’s budget will go into NTR’s pocket. Whatmore, NTR’s pay is said to be around double to the amount paid by Star Maa to Megastar Chiranjeevi for hosting MEK.

Bigg Boss Telugu first season will be telecast on Star Maa on every Saturday and Sunday starting from July to September. The show will be almost like a live one since the episodes will be telecast within 1-2 hours of shooting. Noted celebs from TV, film, political and cricket fields will be roped in as contestants. The prize money is also said to be huge.

Bigg Boss has become quite popular in Hindi belt thanks to host Salman Khan’s star power and the controversial contestants. Star Maa hopes for a similar magic from NTR.
