The popular reality show Bigg Boss Telugu is gearing up for the fifth season. The sources claim that the new season will begin next month. Meanwhile, the ongoing COVID-19 protocols and the fear of the third wave are now worrying the makers.
Bigg Boss season four was pulled off well by the team amidst the coronavirus scare. But that is not the case with the other language versions. The other versions have faced various hurdles and even got canceled midway due to the COVID-19 crisis.
Contestants of Bigg Boss Kannada were sent home midway during the show when the authorities terminated the permission for the makers, to conduct the show. Later, they were called back and the show was continued after getting the permission.
The same is the case with Bigg Boss Malayalam, which got canceled a couple of times due to floods and COVID-19. Now, there is a scare of the third wave across the country. Thus, it will be a challenge for the makers to continue the Telugu show following all the necessary protocols.
It is being heard that the makers of Bigg Boss Telugu are planning to sketch tasks that do not involve any outside activities. The tasks will be designed following the necessary precautions.
The official premiere date of Bigg Boss season 5 will be announced soon.
