Bigg Boss Kannada 6 Sudeep Bigg Boss Kannada 6: The opening episode that lasted for four hours introduced 18 contestants.

The sixth season of Bigg Boss Kannada went on air on Sunday. Traditionally, the show is launched on the grand stage inside the studio. However, this time, it was different. 

Bigg Boss Kannada host Sudeep was directly dropped inside the compound of the newly constructed house with the help of a crane. He made an entry with the title track from his new film The Villain blaring in the background.

“Every year the show is normally launched on the stage. But, today, we will begin the season from the garden area of the house. There is a reason,” said Sudeep, while explaining the departure from the usual practice. “When the Bigg Boss house was gutted in a fire, we realized how much we were attached to it.”

About eight months ago, the Bigg Boss Kannada house located at the Innovative Film City in Bidadi, about 40 km from Bangalore was destroyed in a major fire accident. Sudeep said the Bigg Boss house now stands as a symbol of great human spirit. “It has risen from the ashes,” he expressed. “So, let us being from here.”

Sudeep noted only two things survived the fire accident: an idol of a goddess and a manual water pump. He began the tour of the newly constructed house designed using a wide range of colors. This time, the showrunners have also included a prison area in the new design. And there is also a sperate bedroom for the captain of the house. A new captain is selected at the end of every week either by allowing the housemates to choose one or based on the results of tasks for the captaincy. The showrunners have also thrown in a beauty parlor in the new set up. “The house is beautiful but it becomes more colourful when we send in the contestants,” said Sudeep.

The opening episode that lasted for four hours introduced 18 contestants. It was a mixed bag of celebrities and civilians from different walks of life.
