The show will launch on the OTT platform ahead of its television premiere. The first six weeks of the six-month run of Bigg Boss 15 is called BB OTT. The second phase would be hosted, as it famously is, by Salman Khan.

The new format comes perfectly in time as OTT begins to gain traction in the country. The dual format ensures that the original audience is not left out, although it does proclaim a coming change in ways.
