Colors Marathi announces fourth season of ‘Bigg Boss’

The show will make its grand premiere at 7 p.m. on 2 October.

Mumbai: Colors Marathi is all set to roll out the fourth season of Bigg Boss Marathi, hosted by versatile actor-director-producer Mahesh Manjrekar.

Bigg Boss Marathi 4, powered by Airtel and special partners A23 & Finolex Pipes, will make a grand debut at 7 p.m. on 2 October with an exciting mix of 16 celebrity housemates, making the season an entertainment extravaganza!

The show will be subsequently aired on Colors Marathi at 10 p.m. from Monday to Friday and at 9:30 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. This season promises its viewers non-stop entertainment, exclusive cuts, round-the-clock content drops, and a 24-hour live feed from the house, exclusively on Voot.

Speaking about the fourth edition of the entertainment reality show, Colors Marathi business head Aniket Joshi said, "Bigg Boss Marathi is the audience's favourite reality show. There are countless reasons why the viewership grows every season, and the audience connects with the show on multiple levels; be it the members' relationships with each other or their journeys; their feuds; their friendships; or the fast-paced format of the show. Timed with the festive season, the show is a favourite of the advertisers as well, because of its tremendous reach."

Adding to it, Colors Marathi head of programming Viraj Raje said, "Hearing the name Bigg Boss Marathi, the first thing that everyone remembers is fights, friction, fractions, and arguments. But like in any family, difficulties only bring us closer. Differences are meant to be celebrated, distances to be bridged, and at the end of the day, all is forgiven and all is well. Bigg Boss Marathi is an unscripted reality show that gives you a feeling of gratitude for everything that we take for granted and presents life and interpersonal relationships in their myriad hues and shades. Locked in a house without any contact with the outside world, time stands still, and one’s focus is inward, not outward. This change in perspective of seeing oneself through the eyes of others forces one to better themselves. And this journey of self-discovery and self-betterment is what entices, enthrals, and entertains viewers because they see themselves in the contestants."

Upcoming Bigg Boss Marathi 4 host and actor Mahesh Manjrekar commented, "Bigg Boss Marathi is very close to my heart. This year's season is going to be special for everyone because there will be no glass wall between the contestants and me, as well as the guests. The new season waits for some spectacular surprises. I'm going to a ‘different kind of school.’ The audience will soon know exactly what it will be like. Bigg Boss is a show with unpredictable twists and turns where the emotions and patience of the members are tested. A lot changes this time with the theme "All Is Well." Just like the audience, I am also waiting to see the drama unfold. Let's see how the house members make this happen. The whole of Maharashtra is waiting with bated breath for the unexpected twists that this season will bring with it."

Expressing his excitement, Endemol Shine India CEO Rishi Negi said, "Exciting, entertaining, and engrossing—that's the best way to describe season four of Bigg Boss Marathi! For us at Endemol Shine India, the enjoyment of our audience is paramount, and to this end, we are continuously innovating and experimenting with the format to ensure that the contestants and our viewers are constantly engaged! Every week, expect the unexpected as host Mahesh Manjrekar takes our diverse contestants on a roller coaster ride with ups and downs, many surprises and sudden twists and turns... so, stay tuned!"
