The second season of Bigg Boss Telugu is receiving a mixed response from the viewers as very few people are happy with the selection of contestants. Everyone expected that the makers will rope in some big-name celebrities to rise up the expectations and keep the audience glued to the screens day in day out. However, the show does not feature any star celebrity, making it a dull affair.

The first season opener, featuring NTR scored a staggering TRP rating of 16.5 while the second season opener with Nani as the host managed to grab 15.1 TRP ratings. The interesting point is that MAA’s PR team is claiming that the second season helped the channel in attaining 850 GRP’s, the highest till date, making it the numero uno TV channel in Telugu.

Well, NTR had a lot of things going his way as the excitement factor around the first-of-its-kind reality show in Telugu managed to grab good attention. Also, NTR’s larger-than-life image and mass following paired with his blistering screen presence worked wonders for the show. Nani still has a long way to go and we cannot draw conclusions now.
