After successfully winding up two seasons of the popular reality show Bigg Boss Telugu, now season 3 is on the cards and there are a lot of guesses making rounds about who would host the show.
According to the latest reports, the makers have now approached Nagarjuna Akkineni to host the new season. Nagarjuna made his television debut hosting Meelo Evaru Koteeswarudu, the Telugu version of Kaun Banega Crorepati, on Maa TV.
However, an official confirmation is still awaited on whether he is hosting Bigg Boss Telugu.
The first season of the reality show, which was launched in 2017, was hosted by Tollywood star Jr NTR and had turned out to be a huge hit. The TRPs of the show skyrocketed, breaking some records as well. However, the star could not take up Season 2 as he was busy with his acting assignments. The offer then went to Nani, who hosted it successfully.
The makers for the third season as well approached Jr NTR, reportedly the star also agreed to come back but then, the latest we hear is that Jr NTR has backed out as he is busy with RRR, under SS Rajamouli’s direction.
While Nagarjuna is busy with his current movie assignments, the reality show is shot in the premises of his Annapurna Studios, which can also be convenient for the actor.
On the film front, Nagarjuna’s next will be Manmadhudu 2, to be directed by Rahul Ravindran of Chi La Sow fame. The film will be bankrolled by Nagarjuna under his banner.
