Reportedly Tollywood star Jr NTR had hosted the
popular reality show Bigg Boss Telugu
season one in the year 2017 and it turned out to be an instant hit. Meanwhile the
TRPs of this show had skyrocketed breaking some records as well and the star
could not take up season two as he was busy with his acting assignments. The
offer then went to Nani who successfully hosted it.
Presently with season three on cards, there were
expectations on who would be hosting the show and reports are that Jr NTR is
back. The star has agreed to be back on Bigg Boss for this season and has been paid a whopping Rs 2
crore for it. Furthermore when he hosted season one, Jr NTR made an astounding
Rs 35 lakh per episode which was much higher than what his seniors like
Chiranjeevi and Nagarjuna were paid for hosting television shows.
Presently Jr NTR is busy with the Telugu multi
starrer RRR, which is being
directed by SS Rajamouli. The shooting of this film commenced a couple of months
ago and is under progress and it will go on for the next few months and is
slated to hit the silver screens for Sankaranthi next year. Reportedly RRR is being made on a budget of
Rs 300 crore, and veteran musician MM Keeravani will be composing the tunes for
this magnum opus.
