Rains and quarantine rules had delayed 'BB 14'
Notably, Bigg Boss 14 was earlier set to premiere in September.
However, it was postponed as heavy rains last month in Mumbai had obstructed repair works on the sets, reports said.
The fact that all contestants shall remain in quarantine for a few days before entering the Bigg Boss house was also cited as a reason behind the delay.
