The upcoming season of the popular reality show Bigg Boss will stream its first six weeks on OTT and then make a gradual shift to television. The new season will be called Bigg Boss OTT and will arrive early this year.
Bigg Boss OTT, which will stream on Voot, will introduce a ‘janta’ factor. The new format will give the common man the uncommon powers of “Bigg Boss OTT” by enabling them to handpick contestants and the contestants’ stay, tasks and exit from the show.
Ferzad Palia, Head of Voot Select says: “At Voot, experiences and innovation around content are at the forefront of our strategy. ‘Bigg Boss’ has witnessed tremendous success over seasons and grown to become India’s biggest entertainment property. The launch of Bigg Boss OTT on Voot is another step towards solidifying our ‘Digital First’ approach as an organisation. We are confident that our loyal fans and subscribers will enjoy a truly world class experience through our 24 hour Live feeds, interactivity and gaming offerings.”
Celebrities who have had memorable and even career-altering stints on the show are also excited about this all-new format of Bigg Boss 15. Shweta Tiwari said, “I’m extremely excited to know that my favourite reality show is arriving early this year. For me, Bigg Boss was a life-changing experience. Not only did it let the audience know me beyond my persona as an actor, but ended up teaching me to be more patient, tolerant and yet assertive. It also gave me friends like family. I watch Bigg Boss every year, but I think that as an audience member, I am going to have more power than ever before to be the real judge of the show. That makes this OTT launch absolutely thrilling.”

Nikki Tamboli who finished as the second runner-up on ‘Bigg Boss 15’ said, “In a show full of drama, I was happy to be the uncrowned drama queen! Bigg Boss was quite an interesting experience for me, and my life changed for the better. With so many people with different mindsets, ideologies, opinions, and ways locked in a house, there is bound to be some friction. But what’s life without dollops of drama and some unexpected challenges, isn’t it? In its digital first avatar, I am expecting the show to offer its fans some unlimited mazza, and I am honestly looking forward to knowing really how over-the-top the drama gets with BIGG BOSS OTT!”
Meanwhile, Rahul Vaidya, who is all set to tie the knot on July 16 with TV actor Disha Parmar said, “I have been a product of reality shows. If a reality show gave me a chance to show the world my talent as a singer, Bigg Boss has helped me cement my space in the industry. But like they say, distance makes the heart grow fonder… I can truly say that it is one show that makes you realize the value of your loved ones and brings you closer to them. In a way, I feel BIGG BOSS OTT will drive the audiences closer to the contestants, and they should get ready for all the drama, twists, turns and suspense since Bigg Boss OTT ka Mazza is only possible on VOOT! I can’t wait to witness the all-new avatar of the show.”
