It is not the first time for even Telugu Television to welcome a celebrity to host one of the highly popular game shows on TV. Before Jr. NTR, Megastar Chiranjeevi and Akkineni Nagarjuna did foray into the hosting business and they have become equally successful as well. As both the actors became the top paid anchors during their stints, now Jr. NTR has replaced them with his new show Bigg Boss that is supposed to start telecast from July.
According to the sources, the actor charged high amount for the show per episode as he is one of the most popular stars of Telugu Cinema today, the channel agreed to pay the amount. As per the source the amount is double to that off what Nag and Chiru got for their hosting stints for Meelo Evaru Koteeswarudu. The highly in-demand anchors like Pradeep Machiraju, Ravi do not receive such huge amounts and they’re shocked to hear the figure as per the sources.
Well, Jr. NTR is highly excited about his new avatar and he is waiting to launch this new game show as soon as possible. Also, he will be shooting every day for the show and during the time, he will also be shooting for his movie, Jai Lava Kusa. While his fans expressed doubt, if the movie will be delayed due to this game show, the sources close to the actor revealed everything has been planned according to the actor’s schedule and there will be no delay in the release of the movie under any circumstances.
