Bollywood superstar and Bigg Boss presenter Salman Khan has revealed that Bigg Boss OTT will premiere on Voot on August 8. The makers released a promo of the special edition on Wednesday, calling it Salman’s Eid gift.
In the promo, we see Salman telling fans that Bigg Boss OTT will definitely be banned from TV. That’s because, according to him, “Iss baar ka Bigg Boss hai itna crazy, itna over the top, TV par toh ban ho jaayega (The Bigg Boss this time is so crazy, it will definitely get banned on TV).”

Bigg Boss OTT will be a six-week series streaming on Voot before the television release. While Salman Khan will not be hosting the OTT edition of the show, his appearance in the promo has certainly thrilled fans.
About Bigg Boss OTT, Salman said: “It’s great that this season of Bigg Boss will be the first digital with Bigg Boss OTT, six weeks ahead of television. The platform will see unparalleled interactivity where audiences are not only entertained, but also participate, engage, assign tasks and more – it’s real for the people and by the people. My advice to all participants is to be active, entertaining and well behaved in BB.”
A source had previously shared with indianexpress.com that Bigg Boss OTT will have a mix of influencers, social media stars and celebrities as participants. Aside from the usual one-hour episode, viewers can watch their journey live on Voot 24X7. Like the TV show, Endemol India will also fund the digital edition.
