Recently, Tollywood actor Samantha Akkineni surprised TV audiences by hosting the Dasara episode of Big Boss Telugu 4, as Nagarjuna, the original host and her father-in-law, was in Manali to shoot for his upcoming film Wild Dog. On getting the opportunity to host the show, Samantha wrote on Instagram, “An experience to remember... Never thought I’d be on the Big Boss stage as host! Only because I was given this responsibility by my Mamagaru.. I could find the strength to overcome my fears ... the fear that I had no experience hosting, the fear of Telugu .. I had never even watched an episode befor.. (ended up doing a marathon 3 days before the show ). Thankyou mama for helping me overcome my fears and trusting me with this. And I really need to thank all of you for all the love I received after the episode... I was jumping with joy (sic).”

Later, it was revealed that Samantha will be hosting a celebrity talk show, titled Sam Jam, on the OTT platform Aha. The first four episodes have been shot already, and the first episode will air on November 13, just in time for the festive season of Deepavali.
