One of the biggest advantages is its ability to cut across people of all age groups. We are certain that we will be able to replicate the success and recreate the unpredictability of this format on the silver screen as well," Deepak Dhar, CEO, Endemol India, said in a statement.
Nitin Tej Ahuja, director, Select Media Holdings Pvt Ltd, feels ‘Bigg Boss’ has a great cinematic potential.
