Salman Khan's Bigg Boss 14 To Have 30-Minute Episodes: Report
The popular reality show Bigg Boss is coming back with its fourteenth season, which will air from October 3. According to latest reports, the show hosted by Salman Khan will only hair for half an hour instead of the usual hour-long telecast.
A source quoted in Pinkvilla said, “The makers have chosen a shorter format this time because of the ongoing IPL season. Unlike other years, the COVID outbreak caused a postponement in the IPL dates and with the tournament being played out right now, the TRPs won't be as high as they expect it to be. But this is just for a month. After around a month, they will get back to the old 1-hour slot.”
