‘Bigg Boss 15’ has proven a hit with TV ratings and was extended by two weeks until 31st January. However, the latest rumours suggest it will be on air now until the end of February as its received another extension.
Pinkvilla reports a source stating, “Bigg Boss 15 was to be held till January 16 but the makers, going by the show’s popularity, extended it to January 31. Now, apparently, they will extend this season till the end of February. Apart from the high TRP’s and excellent viewership the show holds across India, the ongoing pandemic is also a reason that the show has been given an extension. The BB set at Film City has the contestants living in a bio bubble and with utmost safety precautions taken for Salman and the rest of the team. Right now, introducing a new show when they have a hugely successful one already running with spiralling TRP’s, does not make sense”.
Interestingly, it’s thought host Salman Khan is available for these extra few weeks. The trade source added, “Salman also has no shoot going on currently as his Tiger 3 Delhi shoot has been postponed so he has given extra dates for the extension. Hence, Bigg Boss 15 will now apparently, get extended till the last week of February. Vishal (Kotian) tested positive a few days earlier but he can still re-enter after a few weeks, if he tests negative and gets well soon”.
Khan is known to juggle many projects at once and is thought to have a shoot scheduled in Hyderabad with Chiranjeevi in the first week of February.
