Big Boss is an Indian reality television game show based on the original Dutch Big Brother format developed by John de Mol. It is produced by Endemol Shine India. This show has been extended into seven different languages, namely Tamil, Hindi, Kannada, Malayalam, Marathi, Telugu and Bangla.
Big Boss involves locking down contestants in a house equipped with CCTV cameras. These contestants are called “housemates”. The elimination takes place weekly, and the contestant who fails to entertain the audience gets the least amount of vote and eventually gets eliminated. The contestants are given daily tasks to perform, at the end of which they can choose the group of people to be nominated for eviction. Housemates are kept in check by a mysterious person known as ‘Bigg Boss’. His only presence in the house is determined by his voice. When the show is at the verge of getting over, only three contestants are left and a finale is organized to announce the winner.
