Bigg Boss OTT

Bigg Boss OTT or Bigg Boss: Over-The-Top, is this cool spin-off digital show in Hindi, kind of like the regular Bigg Boss and you can catch it on Voot and JioCinema. Hosting the digital fun is none other than Salman Khan and the show kicked off its first season party on 8 August 2021.

Concept

Now, just like the regular TV series, you’ve got this bunch of folks called Housemates stuck in the Bigg Boss House, with cameras and mics keeping tabs on their every move. The champ of Bigg Boss OTT pockets ₹25 lakh and nabs the “OTT edition” trophy.

This show is basically non-stop, 24/7 entertainment, with a sweet one-hour episode dropping daily on Voot (Season 1) and JioCinema (Season 2), just like the OG version.

Development

For the behind-the-scenes scoop, the spin-off’s first season got the official green light on 24 July 2021 and Voot got everyone hyped with a poster featuring Karan Johar as the digital season’s host. Then on 3 August, Voot spilled the beans about the season’s format in a third promo.

Fast forward to Season 2 announced by JioCinema on 26 May 2023 with Salman Khan back in the hosting chair. And on 13 June, just four days before the big premiere, they teased us with a sneak peek at the twelve housemates.

Broadcasts

Now, forget about flipping through channels because this edition doesn’t bother with TV. You can catch it all online on Voot for Season 1 and JioCinema for Season 2, 24/7 – no need to set your DVR.

House

As for the House, it’s still the happening spot at Film City, Mumbai, just like the OG series. There’s a chill living area, a big bedroom, kitchen, garden, bathroom, store room, smoking room and even an underground jail (strictly for timeouts, not real punishment). Oh and there’s a confession room where contestants can spill their private tea straight to Bigg Boss. Now that’s the scoop!
