Bigg Boss OTT launched with a Big Bang! Host Karan Johar welcomes 12 contestants

India’s most popular reality show,  Bigg Boss OTT, streams on Voot for the first time. The show was a super hit as the premiere episode consisted of performances by host Karan Johar, Malaika Arora, Arjun Bijlani, Karan Wahi and the spectacular contestants. It set the ball rolling. In keeping with the over-the-top nature of the show, the launch was no less extravagant. The ace filmmaker and host of Bigg Boss OTT made his entry to the beats of dhol-taasha and shaking a leg to hits like ‘It’s The Time to Disco’, ‘Radha’ and ‘Shawa Shawa’ from his productions. He also gave a house tour in true ‘Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhie Bahu Thi’ style.

After the OTT (Over The Top) performance, the sassy and witty host Karan Johar introduced the 6 desi boys to the audience. True to his reputation of being a bathrobe sensation, Zeeshan Khan sauntered in, no prizes for guessing — a bathrobe. When KJo asked if he would enter the Bigg Boss OTT House in a bathrobe, Zeeshan just removed it and tossed it off. When the star-maker host commented on his Ranveer Singh-inspired fashion sense, he replied in the positive. 

Prateek Sehajpal made his entry announcing “Mera doosra naam hai Karma and I’m soon gonna be launched in Dharma,” insinuating that KJo’s production house will back his debut. The host quipped in the same rhyming note, “Wah wah wah wah .. He is a poet, and he does not know it.” 

Malaika Arora literally set the stage ablaze with her sizzling moves to the racy Param Sundari number. Later, the gorgeous actress also turned mentor for the male contestants and guided them in diverse activities from yoga to dance and also taught them to be ‘sarva gunn sampann’.
