Mumbai: Days before Bigg Boss OTT debuts exclusively on Voot, the streaming platform has successfully onboarded food delivery platform Swiggy and cryptocurrency exchange platform CoinDCX as co-powered by sponsors for the reality show.

The OTT special edition will be hosted by Karan Johar for the first six weeks following which it will be aired on Colors TV. The deal will allow the two brands to engage with consumers through industry-first innovations, said the platform on Tuesday.

Swiggy is among the earliest digital-first companies in India and will use this occasion to celebrate its seventh birthday with both viewers and contestants. Swiggy will deliver one of the most special IPs of Bigg Boss OTT that will enable fans to digitally interact with their favourite contestants once a week, it said.

While CoinDCX is looking to build trust through education to foster awareness and credibility with respect to the cryptocurrency industry. They have chosen to partner with Bigg Boss OTT with a host of innovative content integrations and digital interactivity that will build awareness and educate users about cryptocurrency. A trivia quiz “Hazaaron Jeetenge Karodo Inaam" has been specially designed for Bigg Boss fans on Voot along with CoinDCX's Learn team, giving viewers a chance to play and win multiple prizes as they watch their favourite reality show.

Apart from the digital interactivity, CoinDCX is also set to garner deep brand exposure and visibility through an exclusively designed branded zone in the house, where CoinDCX will share a screen with the entertaining contestants of the house, setting up space for some juicy conversations, arguments, and fights amongst them.

Viacom18 digital ventures, head - AVOD (Voot), Chanpreet Arora said, “Bigg Boss OTT is a pioneering step that blends entertainment and technology seamlessly.  Given the all-digital play, Bigg Boss OTT is designed to empower the viewer with one-of-a-kind interactive features brought to life through polls, quizzes, voting, and a lot more, thus changing the narrative of reality shows and bringing in a whole new paradigm of engagement. Bigg Boss OTT, power-packed with gamification and engagement, has successfully garnered patronage of cutting-edge brands and we are excited to welcome Swiggy and CoinDCX as our 'co-powered by' sponsors. We are driven to explore newer ways to keep our viewers engaged while partnering with top-notch brands for India’s biggest reality show!”

Elaborating on the partnership, Swiggy, director-marketing, Umesh Krishna K said, “Bigg Boss has been a marque property in Indian entertainment for more than a decade. When we started our partnership with Voot for Bigg Boss in 2018, we were taken aback by the scale of viewership on VOD. Bigg Boss helps us connect with our core audience through advertising and meaningful integrations, and we hope that the engagement will be far-reaching this year around.”

Talking about the collaboration, CoinDCX, head of marketing and communications, Ramalingam Subramanian said, “I believe the audience that CoinDCX appeals to is well-aligned with Voot. The OTT platform already has a large share of the audience that falls under the same category which we focus on. This makes it a perfect fit for us. CoinDCX has been a pioneering player in the crypto space in India with a vision to make crypto accessible to Indians. Our association with Voot for Big Boss OTT should further help CoinDCX in creating awareness and educating retail investors about cryptocurrency as an asset class.

The show will start streaming on Voot from 8 August.
