Actor Nagarjuna, the host of the most awaited reality show ‘Bigg Boss-Season 4’ on Sunday kickstarted the season revealing all 16 contestants in a premiere opening episode. The show which usually starts by mid-June, this time hit the televisions with 3 month-delay due to the pandemic.
While the show promised 15 weeks of entertainment with celebrities from Tollywood, television and various other platforms, looks like this time’s premiere episode fizzled out many of the fans with almost half of less familiar contestants.
Though contestants like anchor Lasya, actor Karate Kalyani, dance master Amma Rajasekhar, news reporter Devi Nagavalli and singer Noel are familiar faces, majority of the audiences remained clueless with the other constants.
However, YouTubers Alekhya Harika, Mehaboob and ‘My Village Show’ fame Gangavva who are social media sensations are familiar with the youth that constantly follows YouTube and TikTok.
The other contestants like Monal Gajjar acted as heroine in Allari Naresh’s ‘Sudigadu’ and four other low budget films while director Surya Kiran is known as the director of Sumanth’s ‘Satyam’ movie.
Shekhar Kammula’s ‘Life is Beautiful’ movie lead Abijeet is one of the contestants along with ‘Jordaar’ Sujatha who rose to fame with her show ‘Jordan News’. As a twist in the tale, Television star iSmart Shohail and anchor Ariyana Glory were sent to another secret house who will be sent into the house a while later.
Actress Divi and Akhil Sarthak who stood as runner up in the ‘Most desirable men’ contest in Hyderabad are the two other contestants. While the show is known to gain pace slowly, one has to wait and see if the less familiar faces will turn a setback for the show.
