The Bigg Boss is known as the Indian description of international set-up Big Brother as it is one of the engrossing reality television show ever before. The Endemol possessed set-up Big-brother had about 10 blockbuster seasons in Hindi version which was hosted by famous personality Salman Khan.

When the production house roped in Kamal Haasan to host the Tamil version of Bigg Boss, the expectation was that a senior actor in Tollywood would similarly do the honours in the Telugu space. After all, the likes of Nagarjuna and Chiranjeevi had already made their foray into television in Telugu. But in a strategic move, Star Maa has gone in for N T Rama Rao, known as Tarak or Junior NTR. The grandson of N T Rama Rao, the legendary actor and former Andhra chief minister, Tarak is one of the top notch young actors in Telugu cinema.

For a fan association-driven film industry, this is a significant casting coup, as NTR is a huge crowd-puller. Tarak's fans see this as a landmark moment for Telugu television, as no young hero in the top league has attempted an appearce on the small screen. NTR himself believes that "the show will be a game changer" in Telugu television.

"Star Maa was looking for someone with spontaneity and energy, and these two aspects define Tarak," says Mahesh Koneru, trade analyst who closely tracks the Telugu film space. "Since the show does not have a fixed script, it will work for Tarak, who has a sense of humour," he added. And lest it be missed, the name NTR still works like magic in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana.

In terms of remuneration, the g****vine has it that NTR, who is also a trained Kuchipudi dancer and playback singer, has been offered the highest ever remuneration offered ever to a Telugu actor to host a TV show.

Incidentally, like Kamal, Tarak also started off as a child actor. His first film, at the age of 13, saw him starring in the lead role in Ramayanam, which won the National Film Award for Best Children's film in 1996. He made his debut as a hero four years later with Ninnu Choodalani. Among the Telugu heroes, he has worked in the maximum number of movies with Baahubali director SS Rajamouli, delivering three hits with him in Student No 1, Simhadri and Yamadonga.

It is interesting that Tarak was chosen over several other actors in Tollywood. Nagarjuna was a hit with Meelo Evaru Koteeswarudu, the Telugu version of Kaun Banega Crorepati and helped the channel move ahead in TRPs, but his successor Chiranjeevi proved to be a flop. Sources say this is what may have prompted the producers of Bigg Boss to go in for a younger hero.

From NTR's point of view, it is also a smart career move. Though he had two releases in 2016 in Nannaku Prematho and Janatha Garage, he will have only one release in Jai Lava Kusa towards the end of the year. Staying connected with the audience through another medium therefore will ensure he is not out of sight, out of mind.

What kind of an impact is this likely to have on NTR's film career? "How a show on TV does makes little impact on the love and affection the audience shows for the star on the big screen,'' points out D Suresh Babu, producer and distributor, adding, "Salman Khan's fan following has not been adversely affected by his appearance on Bigg Boss. Similarly, though Chiranjeevi's show did not do well, it does not mean his next film will not get a good opening. At the same time, the TV shows that some actresses host do not help their film career.''

Interestingly in recent months, NTR has also been posting pictures of playing with son Abhay Ram on social media, projecting a very familial image. That will also help convey the gravitas needed for his role as the host of the show apart, from relating to a family audience watching Bigg Boss.

In the past, thanks to his family's connect with the Telugu Desam — NTR founded the party in 1982 and became chief minister the following year, at the same time that NTR Junior was born — Tarak campaigned for the party during election time in 2009. That led to comparisons being drawn between him and Nara Lokesh, Chandrababu Naidu's son. But now with Lokesh's entry as a minister in the Andhra cabinet, NTR has decided to be the Bigg Boss in the film and TV world, without getting into any competition in the political space.

The late NTR was a trendsetter in the manner in which he excelled in mythological roles of Lord Rama and Lord Krishna on the big screen. Junior NTR will hope to be a similar trailblazer on the small screen. The grandfather was the big boss of Telugu cinema and the Andhra political landscape for nearly half a century, and the grandson has makes it a case of 'NTR Returns'.

Bigg Boss Telugu contestants' list: Posani Krishna Murali, DhanRaj and Srimukhi are rumoured to be on the Jr NTR hosted reality TV show which will be aired on Star Maa.

Posani Krishna Murali

The Telugu TV audiences are eagerly waiting to know the contestants' list of Star Maa's reality TV show Bigg Boss Telugu. The buzz is that Posani Krishna Murali, Dhanraj and Srimukhi will be among the 14 participants on the Jr NTR's show.

Several speculations are being made about the 14 contestants of Bigg Boss Telugu. If we are to go by the buzz on the social media, Posani Krishna Murali has been roped in as one of the participants on the show and he is said to be charging Rs 10 lakh per day as his remuneration. It is said to be the highest amount for a contestant on the Telugu version of Bigg Boss.

Haricharan Pudipeddi‏, a noted journalist from down south, opines that Posani Krishna Murali is a great choice and his presence will assure entertainment to the audience. Haricharan tweeted: "Actor Posani Krishna Murali will be one of the contestants on #BiggBossTelugu ft #NTR. Great choice. Entertainment guaranteed ."

The buzz on the social media also claims that Dhanraj, who is one of the popular Telugu comedians, has been approached and the actor has apparently agreed to be one of the contestants on Bigg Boss Telugu. Another buzz is that Srimukhi, who is an actress-turned-TV anchor, has been approached by the makers of the show. The Adurs host is said to have given her nod to be a participant on the show.

The disheartening news is that actor Ravi Teja's brother, Bharath Raj, who was recently ****ed in a car accident, was rumoured to be one of the contestants on Bigg Boss Telugu. The news about his entry hit the internet soon after his death and created a lot of buzz on the social media.

However, Bigg Boss is one of the most popular reality TV shows in India. The Hindi version of this show, which is based on the original Dutch Big Brother format developed by John de Mol, has completed 10 seasons and is now gearing up for its 11th season. Following its success, the show was also adapted to Bengal and Kannada, which also went on to become a big hit with the audience in their respective languages.

Recently, Tamil edition of Bigg Boss, which is hosted by Kamal Haasan, went on air on June 25. Its Telugu edition is set to go on air on Star Maa very soon. The makers of the show are now busy with its promotion and have recently released a couple of teasers which generated a lot of curiosity about the reality show.
