Bigg Boss Malayalam hosted by the legendary actor Mohanlal has been suspended temporarily and has been fined ₹1 lakhs on the grounds of flouting Covid and lockdown norms.
Bigg Boss Malayalam season 3 was being shot at EVP film City in Chembarambakkam, Chennai, despite a complete ban on shoots of television & films under Tamil Nadu’s lockdown norms. Hence, the set was sealed on May 19 by the officials.
We got the information that food was being taken inside the film city. So we inspected the place yesterday evening. There were seven contestants and 10 technicians inside filming Bigg Boss Malayalam. All of them were evicted and the film city was sealed around 8 pm on Wednesday” said Preethi Parkavi, Revenue divisional officer.
Although, no one among the cast and crew has tested positive for covid but 6 crew members had tested positive around a month back.
