About Bigg Boss Kannada Show
It is the Kannada version of the famous reality television show which is broadcast mainly across India. The show is currently being produced by Endemol which is also the owner of the international Big Brother format. So far, Bigg Boss Kannada has successfully completed four seasons.
The season one of the shows which started back in 2013 became such a huge hit that it emerged as the most viewed show in South India during that particular year. When the season 2 started, the show even became bigger and more famous and went on to fetch some huge profits for the producers of the show as well as the channel.
By the time the fourth season started, the show had already gained such huge popularity that several film producers from South Indian film industry lodged a protest to ban the show. This protest was organised because in the view of producers’, the show was literally taking away the performances of the South Indian movies on box office.
The protest though did not have any negative effects on the TRP of the show and season 4 was ended with a grand success. [Also, read about khatron ke khiladi 8 contestants]
