Bengaluru: Former Minister and BJP MLC A.H. Vishwanath, who has been barred by the Supreme Court from being made a Minister unless he becomes an elected member said that he is interested in entering Bigg Boss Kannada.


Vishwanath, who was elected as a legislator from Hunsur on JD(S) ticket, switched to the BJP and resigned from his legislator’s seat. He was among 17 Congress and JD(S) legislators who resigned, resulting in the collapse of the H.D. Kumaraswamy-led coalition government in July 2019.

“If given an opportunity I will definitely go into Bigg Boss Kannada’s house, by doing so I can educate people about Karnataka politics,” said Vishwanath.

He further added, “Parameshwar Gundkal, Cluster Business Head of Colors Kannada had invited me to participate in Season 6 of Bigg Boss Kannada, but I refused because of my health condition.

Bigg Boss Kannada Season 8 will had its grand premiere on Colors TV Kannada on February 28. Kichcha Sudeep, who has been the host of all seasons, took over the show as the anchor yet again.


Keeping the Covid-19 restrictions in mind, the contestants, crew members, and the Bigg Boss team have been following social distancing rules inside and outside the house.

This season of Bigg Boss Kannada began on March 1 and will go on for 100 days. The show is featuring celebrities hailing from different backgrounds.
