The promo was to be shot in June itself but things couldn’t get materialised. Bigg Boss 14 expected to hit the screens in the first week of October. The show has been delayed than its original release date because the channel still has many episodes of Khatron Ke Khiladi left to be telecast. When the lockdown was announced, the channel had stopped airing the rest of the episodes of the adventurous reality show. Whenever the channel starts functioning back now, it will first air the episodes of KKK that would take around two months.
