BB OTT 2 was a huge success one must say. With a live-stream viewership of over 25 lakhs, the show now stands second at Jio Cinema viewer list, right after IPL.
Big Boss OTT 2 had its finale on Monday, which was hosted by Salman Khan. Approximately 25 lakh viewers watched the live stream of the show on Jio Cinema and witnessed the winner trophy to be handed over to YouTuber Elvish Yadav. He created history by becoming the first wild card entrant to lift the winner trophy at Big Boss.
In an interview he said that he has learnt all the things from this show and he is grateful to the show host and the management for their help. He also said to accept what’s right and wrong equally and to have control over anger.
According to a source a total of 25 crore votes were received in the 15 minutes that was provided to vote for one of the finalists Elvish and Abhishek Malhan. The source revealed that the number of votes they received were much higher than they had anticipated. The number of votes revealed the popularity of the reality show.
There was a rumour that since Big Boss is a television reality show, the audience will not accept it as OTT. Well, clearly the calculation is different now.
In a press conference, Jio Cinema stated that they have overall received about 245 crore of views and 540 crore votes in the span of 8 weeks. The show also has 3000 crore watchtime which acquired the show to hold the second place in the ranking list. They also added that Maharashtra, Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Bihar, Gujarat, West Bengal, and Madhya Pradesh, contributed significantly to the viewership of the show.

All of the participants except Superstar Puneet attended the show in Mumbai. The parents of the finalists also reached the venue to support their child.
Salman Khan has been hosting the show for ages in television , however he made his debut this year as a host of BB in OTT. Last year we saw Karan Johar as the host of the OTT big Boss on Voot, however he did not gain much appreciation. Salman Khan’s way of hosting the show, dealing with the participants and style is appreciated by all over the years.
