It's been 71 days since Bigg Boss Kannada 8 had begun airing on television. But unfortunately, the makers of Bigg Boss Kannada have decided to cancel the ongoing season due to the surge in Covid-19 cases. The decision was taken after the Karnataka government on Friday decided to impose a 14-day statewide lockdown from May 10-24.
Parameshwar Gundkal, Cluster Business Head of Colors Kannada, announced the news on Facebook saying that the contestants inside the house would be brought out and taken to their homes safely.
“Today is the 71st day since Bigg Boss (season 8) began. I feel emotionally overwhelmed looking at 11 contestants in the house through these cameras. Everyone inside this house is happy as they are unaware of problems that are happening on the outside. They are also safe since they are all isolated. Everybody will be informed about what’s going on on the outside, and they will be brought out. All of the housemates and crew members will be safely taken to their homes, and the arrangement for the same is underway. The dream and effort of hundreds of people have been cut short. Even though it was a very difficult decision to make, we are satisfied with it. Our hearts feel heavy. Not because the show was cancelled but on the account of an invisible virus that is causing all the tragedy,” Parameshwar wrote in Kannada on his Facebook post.
Host Kiccha Sudeep, who had distanced himself from shooting Bigg Boss Kannada 8 episodes as safety measures, had earlier tweeted that he hopes to be back soon with his weekend episodes as the show comes to a sudden end. "Cancelled coz even if its few members gathering ,,,it isn't supporting th current situation.. I understand viewers disappointments ,,but I'm sure we all agree tat we need to support the rules laid. Let's hope fo the best n hopefully we can be bk wth weekend episodes asap," he wrote.
Meanwhile, Sudeepa's next, Vikrant Rona, has been scheduled to release on August 19. The multilingual action adventure is set to release in 14 languages across 55 countries. As per the film's team, Vikrant Rona has planned for a 3D release. Besides Kiccha Sudeepa, the film also stars Nirup Bhandari and Neetha Ashok in pivotal roles.
