Kiccha Sudeep has done it again. The actor seems to be unstoppable with his recent movies turning out to be money spinners, and now his television show Bigg Boss leading the TRP charts and becoming a most-watched Kannada television reality shows in the present year.
Talking about the success of Bigg Boss Kannada, Sudeep has refused to take credit for the success rather he has given it to the team, who worked hard to keep the audience glued through the content. The underlining point of the story is that the Kiccha-hosted show has surpassed the popularity of Puneet Rajkumar's Kannada Kotyadhipathi, which had highest TRPs last season.
"Without much content I don't think we can keep pulling the audience," says Sudeep. According to him, popularity can draw attention, but not for long. "It is doing well. It might be marginal, but I don't want to take the credit. The audience always has an option to swap between the channels. But the TRP is steady and that means content rolls out," he added.
He also does not believe in taking feed back from family or other close members on the show. "I don't take any feedback. I make it a compulsion that I don't. The first one who knows when you make a mistake will be yourself," said the actor.
Doesn't Take Feedback From Family/Friends
"As far as feedback is concerned, I don't like it as feedback comes to me from people close to me and you can't take it seriously. You will know from people's gestures and TRPs, and that is your feedback," he added.
Never Seen Salman's Show
The last three seasons of Hindi Bigg Boss had been hosted by Salman Khan, but Sudeep didn't watch the Bollywood superstar hosting the reality show.
"He is too huge for me to be standing and taking tips... The concept of the show attracted me. We have to take chance... I took my chance. Bigg Boss house belongs to the contestants and the stage belongs to me. I could speak to the audience and be myself," said Kiccha.
Not A TV Buff
Before he started, the actor did not have much idea about the concept of the show. "I had scene glimpses of it. I knew for sure that few people are put in the house. I didn't know the show at all as I am not a TV buff," he said.
Good Words About Contestants
Talking about the personalities in the house, he said, "They are all inside living through everything and they are all somebodies. They are all people who have their own name. They have given up a lot to be staying inside, which was an option. It is not right to be treating them as criminals."
Out of 15 contestants, Arun Sagar, Narendra Babu Sharma, Vijay Raghavendra and Nikita Thukral have made it to the grand finale, which is on June 29.
