In this paper, we study bigravity theory in a very specific limit in which we focused only on 1 degree of freedom generated by the massive graviton. We analyze the model in the context of cosmology and demonstrate that the model can give rise to late-time cosmic acceleration as an attractor of the dynamical system. However, the observational constraints due to tensor perturbations are stringent, giving rise to large fine-tuning.
