Generally, star heroes don’t show much interest in hosting TV shows. King Nagarjuna broke the trend by making small screen debut with the reality game show Meelo Evaru Koteeswarudu. The actor successfully hosted MEK for few seasons and megastar Chiranjeevi took the responsibility to anchor the last episode of the game show. However, Chiru failed to impress audiences.
In fact, MEK show helped Nagarjuna to gain admirers in all the areas in the Telugu states. Even, people in rural area loved the show and Nagarjuna’s hosting skills. The reason for Soggade Chinni Nayana becoming a huge hit and Oopiri getting massive openings is Nagarjuna was hosting MEK then.
When Star Maa announced young tiger Jr NTR to host Bigg Boss Show, many criticized the actor for accepting the controversial show and few doubted whether he can pull off it productively or not. Proving them wrong, NTR made Bigg Boss Show interesting with his entertaining anchoring capabilities. Many have become fans for NTR’s spontaneity and the way he treated all the contestants in the show.
When his elder brother Kalyan Ram and Jai Lava Kusa heroines Raashi Khanna and Nivetha Thomas visited Bigg Boss, NTR too entered the house. After JLK team went out of the house, NTR specially cooked mutton biryani for contestants. Many tried the recipe in homes.
During Bigg Boss finale, NTR told all the contestants to call him for get-to-gether party. This showed how close he became with the contestants.
NTR’s mission has been accomplished with Bigg Boss show which has made him close to everyone in Telugu states. Though viewers may have missed weekend episodes, they anticipated eagerly for weekend episodes for NTR.
Overall, Bigg Boss show assisted NTR’s recent outing Jai Lava Kusa raking massive openings at box office, despite getting mixed talk.
