In 2017, when Bigg Boss Telugu season 1 first premiered, the show also marked the television debut of actor Jr. NTR. According to reports, the Temper actor was paid a whopping amount of Rs. 35 lakh per episode, making him the highest paid actor in the history of Telugu television, surpassing veterans like Akkineni Nagarjuna and Chiranjeevi.
However, recent reports suggest that the Yamadonga actor is gearing up to make his comeback as the host of the show once again and this time, he will be paid Rs. 20 crore to host the show.
While the actor has already given a heads up to the project, the team are still trying to adjust the show between SS Rajamouli’s RRR, which also stars Ram Charan in the titular role.
Some reports suggest that Jr. NTR might have to give up Bigg Boss as spending more time on Rajamouli’s film would make sense for his career. Also, he has already allotted 200 days for Rajamouli’s project.
If this happens, Nani might be approached to host the season again as he has already hosted the second season of the show and made quite an impression in his new avatar.
On a related note, Bigg Boss Telugu was the most expensive show to ever be created in Telugu television history. It had one of the largest sets, with more than 10,000 square feet area and nearly 750 people worked on the project at any given point of time.
