Sudeep has announced that he will not host Bigg Boss till Huchcha Venkat is punished. Last year's contestant Huchcha Venkat had been invited to the Bigg Boss house for a day and he ended up physically assaulting contestant Pratham. Sudeep has said that he watched the episode and what Venkat has done is inexcusable.
"Just saw th episode and this act by Huccha Venkat is inexcusable. I shall stand by what needs to be done. I do host the show, but If he thinks he can walk in, physically abuse a contestant and walk out then he's wrong. He should and shall be punished. This is my promise to my viewers and the contestants that I shall only appear again to host only after justice is done."
