Colors Marathi to launch 'Bigg Boss Marathi' S3 on 19 Sept

The show’s sponsors include Brooke Bond Red Label, TRESemme, A23 and Haier.

Mumbai: Colors Marathi will air the third season of “Bigg Boss Marathi” starting from 19 September. The show will have a four-hour launch episode starting from 7 p.m and will be subsequently aired every Monday to Sunday at 9:30 p.m.

Produced by Endemol Shine India, Viacom18 has roped in Brooke Bond Red Label as ‘presenting sponsor’ and TRESemme, A23 and Haier as ‘special partners’ for this edition of the show.

“Bigg Boss Marathi proved to be one of the topmost viewed shows in the Marathi general entertainment space for both the seasons, attracting not only television viewers but also a massive number of digital viewers on Voot," said Viacom18 business head of regional entertainment (Kannada and Marathi) Ravish Kumar. "The show provides various opportunities for brands to reach out to their target audience as is evinced by the number of sponsors on board."

Actor-director-producer Mahesh Manjrekar returns as the show host alongside 15 new celebrity housemates, who will be quarantined in the 'Bigg Boss' house for 100 days. “As we get used to the new normal, I’m glad to be back with Bigg Boss and entertain every one of you," remarked Manjrekar.

There are more than 60 cameras in the house that are accessible to Voot users giving digital audiences 24*7 live access. These audiences can not only vote for their favourite contestants but also ask them questions, send them messages and share their views on what’s going on via digital innovations introduced on the OTT platform.

“From a format perspective, we have tried to make this season different, innovative and made sure that we have the right kind of contestants and housemates. The audience will also get to see Marathi flavour be it in the tasks or routine," said Colors Marathi business head Aniket Joshi.

“Our overall approach with Bigg Boss Marathi season three is to celebrate the Marathipan by displaying the various cultural nuances of Maharashtra," said Colors Marathi head of programming Viraj Raje. "Be it the design elements inside the house, the tasks, and even naming Weekend ka Daav as Chavadi, we have tried to bring in the true essence to Maharashtra’s rich culture into the show," he added.

“We at Endemol Shine India have gone the extra mile to ensure that the housemates are kept on their toes throughout this new season," said Endemol Shine India CEO Abhishek Rege.
