The News Minute writes Sipligunj is known for his unique sound that draws inspiration from Telangana folk music. He gained fame after starting off by sharing videos on YouTube. His most recent song is 'Ranga Ranga Rangasthalana' from Ram Charan-starrer Rangasthalam.

The first two seasons were hosted by Jr NTR, followed by Nani. Nagarjuna took over in the third season.

Bigg Boss Telugu was recently in the news as actress Gayathri Gupta and journalist Swetha Reddy had filed a complaint against the organisers, alleging that they harassed them. The two had appealed to the National Commission for Women (NCW), demanding a complete ban on the show. As per the two women's complaint, the organisers wanted them to 'compromise' despite the two noted personalities having signed a contract with the show.
