Is it a boring week? Are you already feeling the need to unwind and catch up with some banter? Did you know that your daily household chores can also have their own aura of thrills? We’re all acquainted with a very popular show that has its fair share of both controversies and entertainment – Bigg Boss. But, wait, there’s a twist to it too! So brace yourselves, sit back and experience the all new Big Boss OTT: An Unconventional Take On The Original Show.
Staying true to its nature, it brought along with it a bag full of surprises. This time, a prelude to the actual season of Bigg Boss 15 is to be aired on Voot for six weeks. The winners and top contenders of the prelude will confirm their spot in the Big Boss Season 15.
The show will make a gradual shift from OTT to television. Given that the reality show has several firsts this time, the Bigg Boss OTT House was no different and has been designed with altogether a new look inspired by Bohemian Rhapsody, gipsy, carnival themes. They have kept the ‘digital first’ aspect in mind before designing the entire look making sure that it is hatke, comfortable, warm & yet contemporary for the Bigg Boss OTT.
UNUSUAL FORMAT OF DRAMA AND MELODRAMA
In the promo of the Bigg Boss OTT video, it is revealed that the audience will get to decide the contestants’ punishment in the house. Now the audience is more involved in the house than ever. The audience will also be involved in deciding tasks, nominations and even elimination.
The quirky and relatively new format of the show has had the viewers glued to their screens for updates. While a wave of excitement has taken over the Bigg Boss fans, the show has managed to engage a relatively newer audience as well by experimenting on an entirely new platform.
THE CONTROVERSY HOUSE
Bigg Boss is by and large known for its highly controversial nature. It has made a lot of noise surrounding brutal fights, vivacious tasks and mighty hook-ups. Bigg Boss OTT involves famous personalities from various fields. Contestants are often paired up and locked inside ‘Bigg Boss ka Ghar’.
The house has hundreds of cameras, and contestants are in the public eye constantly. The contests have to coexist with each other for several months with zero connection from the outside world.
To make it harder than it already is, they are given several challenging and tedious tasks from time to time. Host Salman Khan is in the limelight of the show Bigg Boss. Salman meets the contestants via a virtual platform every weekend. This year, however, a six-week prelude or prequel is all set to put the contestants up for a fight against each other to secure a spot in the television aired Bigg Boss season 15.
HOST OF BIGG BOSS OTT
It was speculated earlier that the Big Boss OTT will be hosted by Bigg Boss Season 13th winner Siddharth Shukla and Season 13th Contestant Shehnaz Gill.
With this shocking revelation, to everyone’s surprise, Voot officially announced that the famous Bollywood Director & Producer Karan Johar will host the Big Boss OTT.
In his new role as the show’s host, Karan Johar said, “My mom and I are huge Bigg Boss fans and wouldn’t miss it for a day. As a viewer, it keeps me hugely entertained with dollops of drama. For decades now, I have always enjoyed hosting shows and now with Bigg Boss OTT, it will surely be over the top. It’s my mother’s dream to come true. 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 also took to Instagram and shared this news with his fans and wrote, “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 !!!!

Netizens seem to be unhappy with this shocking revelation and were extremely irritated and called Pratik attention seeker, and found Zehsaan funny. They were also quite impressed with Karan Johar’s hosting but were missing Salman Khan, who is an ultimate host of course. Take a look at a few tweets!

The show did not reveal the names of the contestants directly and maintained the element of suspense. The final list of confirmed contestants came to light last night in the premiere.
Fans can expect a one-of-a-kind experience with direct and deeper engagement, empowerment and indulgence in the ongoing daily drama of the house. The confirmed list of contenders so far are Neha Bhasin, Raquesh Bhapat, Zeeshan Khan, Ridhima Pandit, Karan Nath, Urji Javed, Divya Agarwal, Akshara Singh, Pratik Sehejpal, Nishant Bhatt, Muskan Jattana and Milind Gaba. Along with them, Shamita Shetty will also be contesting as a confirmed contestant. These 12 players will be up for a battle to win the trophy and secure their position in Bigg Boss 15.
A PHENOMENAL PREMIERE
The premiere initiating the six-week-long virtual big-boss was hosted yesterday by Karan Johar. The premiere, like the show, left no shred of glamour and was indeed an OTT (over the top) start to an exceptional season.
Candid performances by the shining stars of B-town made the evening extravagant. Among the performers were Karan Wahi, Malaika Arora Khan, Arjun Bhilani and Host Karan Johar. Karan Johar with his sassy and witty humour made the evening more delightful than ever. The Param Sundari of Bollywood absolutely smashed the stage with her sizzling moves and left everyone in awe. The contestants too left no opportunity to keep their viewers entertained and make their mark. Pratik Sehejpal made a quirky comment saying, “mera doosra naam hai Karma and I am going to be launched in Dharma”.
LET THE SHOW BEGIN
The controversies and sparks flew right from the first day. The format of Bigg Boss OTT required the girls to choose a boy each to enter the house. Nearing the end, Karan Nath was left opposing the duo- Ridhima Pandit and Divya Agarwal. Host Karan Johar took the opportunity to turn the tables around and asked Karan Nath to choose a girl for himself. Karan chose Ridhima over Divya leaving her nominated for the entire week. Divya and Pratik moved one step ahead and indulge themselves in a verbal spat. Divya accused Pratik of not keeping in touch despite her referring to him as her companion. She also went ahead and insulted the young man by stating that she does not need the show, but he does.
Controversy, jealousy, fights, glamour and dazzle-all of it found their way to the show on the first day itself. The coming episodes are going to be jam-packed with one and only one thing- entertainment, entertainment and entertainment.
