The hunt for the contestants is on. Parameshwar Gundkal, head of Colors Kannada, had that the show this time will have only celebrities and commoners will not be part of Sudeep-hosted show. This came as disappointing news to a section of fans as they love to see common man in the reality show. 

On the other hand, the organisers have approached quite a lot of celebrities. Sources in the film industry had initially hesitant to accept the offer due to Covid-19. This situation was in August when the film-related activities had not returned to normalcy due to the lockdown.

Situations Change
However, in the last couple of months, the situations have improved especially since the format has been successfully organised in Hindi, Telugu and Tamil languages. With the Covid-19 cases on the decline, many celebrities are keen to participate in the eighth season of Bigg Boss Kannada.
