Bigg Boss is an Indian TV show developed by Endemol Shine India through Star India and Viacom 18. It is inspired by the Dutch show Big Brother, produced in the Netherlands by John de Mol Jr. In this reality game show, several celebrity contestants are separated from the outside world for about ninety days in a custom-built house. These celebrity contestants are called housemates. One of the housemates is expelled by the public’s vote every week. Hence, the housemate left at the end is the winner. The first series of Bigg Boss was in the Hindi language. But later on, this show was extended into seven languages, including Kannada, Bengali, Marathi, Telugu, Tamil, and Malayalam.
