As Bigg Boss Telugu returns for its third season, Jr NTR is all set to reprise his role as its host.

Bigg Boss Telugu’s first season turned out to be a big hit due to the electrifying presence of its host Jr NTR. Since Jr NTR was busy with his acting assignments, he could not resume his role in the season 2 of the franchise. The role eventually went to actor Nani. The second season of Bigg Boss Telugu ended on September 30, with Kaushal Manda winning the title. 

Reports are rife that the producers of Bigg Boss Telugu are looking to begin the third season and that Jr NTR may be back on it as its host. The star is currently busy with SS Rajamouli’s directorial venture RRR which is expected to extend well into 2019 and slotted to be a 2020-Sankaranthi release. Sources also say that Jr NTR is bound by the contract not to act in any other film until RRR is wrapped up and hence he may go back to host Big Boss Telugu. An official word on this soon expected.

RRR has two of Tollywood’s top stars Ram Charan Teja and Jr NTR in the lead roles. The shooting of this flick commenced last year and reports say that the director had begun with an action sequence featuring both the heroes. While Jr NTR will be sporting a bulky look with a beard, Ram Charan will be seen donning a completely different look styled by a top hairstylist. While the lead ladies are yet to be finalised, massive and extravagant sets have been erected for shooting the fight scene.

While DVV Dhanayya will produce the movie under his banner DVV Entertainments on a massive budget of Rs 300 crore, MM Keeravani is tasked with composing music for this magnum opus.
