Many might have thought that a reality show format like Bigg Boss might not be a possibility during the times of the coronavirus pandemic as several celebrities are required to live together under one roof for several months and the concept feels rather risky. Well, the makers made the bold decision of bringing back the reality with the Telugu version hosted by Nagarjuna Akkineni ready to premiere just 6 days later in this week.
