A source had earlier told a media portal, “Karan enjoys the format of Bigg Boss and given the web version will have a younger audience, he was excited to come on board. Also, unlike the TV show, this is a shorter commitment, making it more feasible for him, as he is also set to start filming for Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani.

Johar, too, opened up about hosting Bigg Boss OTT and told a news portal, “My mom and I are huge Bigg Boss fans and wouldn’t miss it for a day. As a viewer, it keeps me hugely entertained with dollops of drama. For decades now, I have always enjoyed hosting shows, and now with Bigg Boss OTT… it will surely be Over the Top. It’s my mother’s dream come true.”

KJo affirmed that Bigg Boss OTT will be lot more “sensational and dramatic.” He went on te say, “I hope I can live up to the audience’s and my friends’ expectations, make Weekend Ka Vaar with the contestants an enjoyable affair in my own style and up the ante on the entertainment quotient.”
