According to a leading daily, popular Telugu star Jr NTR has decided against hosting the second and latest season of Bigg Boss Telugu because of his packed-schedule and some personal commitments. Talking about this, a source said that Tarak will begin shooting for his film with Trivikam Srinivas soon, thereafter; he will begin work on his film with SS Rajamouli. Hence, according to the source, he will not be able to do the show.
“The actor is committed to two films — one with Trivikram and the other with SS Rajamouli. Both start one after another without a gap. He also has a few family commitments, so he has no time to do the reality show, and hence opted out,” added the source.
Well, this is an unexpected situation and we will have to wait for an official statement from the ‘Young Tiger’.
In case you did not know, in 2017, Jr NTR hosted the first season of Bigg Boss Telugu and added a new dimension to his career. The show became a success and helped Tarak showcase a new side of his personality. Talking the experience of hosting Bigg Boss Telugu, he had called the show a ‘game-changer’.
“In films, I’m playing someone else and I’m expected to fill in someone else’s shoes. Bigg Boss is one place where I could be myself. I didn’t have to pretend to be someone else. Bigg Boss reflects my true self. It helped me to open up. Television is one of the biggest mediums for entertainment. When I was approached to host Bigg Boss, the biggest ever show on Telugu Television, I was intrigued by the challenge. I believe that the show will be a game changer,” he had added.
It will be worth watching who steps into NTR Jr’s shoes if this report turns out to be true.
