Last year, Tollywood hero Nani added a new dimension to his career when he replaced Jr NTR as the host of Bigg Boss Telugu 2, much to the delight of his fans. Sadly, this stint on the show tuned out to be a big disappointment as he proved to be no match for the 'Young Tiger'. With the lacklustre season in the past, Bigg Boss Telugu 3 is set to kick off today (July 21, 2019) with actor Nagarjuna as the host. The show has created a great deal of buzz amongst fans, which is a positive development.
Here are the latest live updates about the opening episode of Bigg Boss Telugu 3.

- Nagarjuna's energy levels are impressive and proe that he is the right choice for the show.
- The show features interesting contestants such as Ali Reza, anchor Sreemukhi and Hema to name a few.
- The opening episode suggests that we are in for a ride.
Meanwhile, here is a look at some of the big talking points about Bigg Boss Telugu 3.
A few days ago, Bigg Boss Telugu 3 landed in a major controversy when Swetha Reddy claimed that he organisers of the show had ‘cheated' her after initially agreeing to include her as one of the participants.
"Let me ask Nagarjuna garu if he shouldn't take up the issue and address our concerns. There are women in his family. Samantha is an actress. Amala garu was an actress. I want to ask Nagarjuna garu if he would be silent if someone from his family were to be cheated in this way. I respect you and you have a lot of fans. But it's wrong for you to host a show like this," she had added.
Will Nagarjuna Address This Controversy?
Some time ago, Nagarjuna had criticised Bigg Boss Telugu 3 for being a ‘voyeuristic' show and indicated that he would never host it.
"Please don't ask me about Bigg Boss. I will talk bad about the show. I don't like the concept of Bigg Boss. It's voyeuristic and watching what other persons doing. I don't like these kinds of things," he had added.
Let us see whether he explains his change of heart during the opening episode or not.
A Big Opportunity
Nagarjuna is going through a lean phase on the work front. Last year, he delivered two consecutive flops (Officer and Devadas) and this left his fans in a state of shock. The buzz is that Bigg Boss Telugu 3 has the potential to help him get his career back on track.
Nagarjuna Vs Kamal Haasan
The Kamal Haasan-hosted Bigg Boss Tamil 3 has become a craze amongst fans, which has raised the stakes as far as the Telugu version is concerned. It remains to be seen if the show proves to be as popular as its Tamil counterpart.
