It has done wonders in every language that it has been adapted to. We believe that the Marathi viewers have worked up a great appetite for this kind of cutting edge content and this is just the right time to give them an experience that is at par with the National channels.”

Bigg Boss as a concept has borne excellent results for our Hindi, Bangla and Kannada counterparts. The show is an emotional roller coaster ride for the inmates as well the audiences. The format offers tremendous viewer engagement, and who better to present it than maverick actor-filmmaker Mahesh Manjrekar.
