With merely five days for the grand finale, Bigg Boss Malayalam 3, hosted by Mohanlal, was suspended temporarily, after the set erected in Chennai was sealed for violating lockdown roles. Later, the organizers revealed that they will select the winners of the show by asking the public to vote for them. Though the voting lines to select the winner of Bigg Boss Malayalam 3 are closed, the team hasn't announced when they will announce. This has given birth to rumours that the grand finale might get postponed due to the second wave of the Covid-19 pandemic.
There is an existing lockdown in Kerala and Tamil Nadu, which has come as a hindrance to the shooting of the grand finale. Reportedly, the makers were planning to shoot it this weekend, but they were forced to cancel it because of the extension of lockdown in Kerala. The organizers will announce the grand finale telecast date only after they complete the shooting. According to reports, Manikuttan is in the running to win the third season of Bigg Boss 3. Sai Vishnu, DImpal Bhal and Rithu Manthra are the other contestants who could be crowned as the show's winner.
