“I’m very happy every time a new season comes out as the shooting of Bigg Boss happens in Bengaluru. Usually, the show in the other languages is shot in Lonavla but the Kannada version is shot in Bengaluru and it made me feel wanted,” said the star, while talking to the media recently.
“Anything I do, I’d love to do it from my heart. If I cannot feel connected to something, I will not do it,” he added, suggesting that the show was special to him. Sudeep has been hosting Bigg Boss Kannada ever since its first season aired in 2013.
