Star to host Tamil version of Bigg Boss
Venturing into television for the first time, Kamal Hassan said he is looking forward to taking part in the reality show
Good news for lovers of reality TV: a Bigg Boss-like show is coming to Tamil television. But the best part is that popular actor Kamal Haasan will be hosting it.
After donning the caps of actor, producer and director, the star is now trying his hand at television as host of a Tamil version of the mega-hit Indian reality show Bigg Boss, which has the same general format as Big Brother.
“Yes, I am doing Bigg Boss in Tamil. I’ve tried many different roles in various capacities as an entertainer but never as a host on a television show. Reality television is so far not a reality in my career. I want to see what it feels like,” Haasan was quoted as saying.
As per reports, the program will more or less follow the same template as the original but will cater to a Tamil audience.
The popular reality show is a spin-off of Big Brother, in which participants live in a specially constructed house without television or phones, and are constantly monitored via cameras and microphones.
The show will be aired on Star Vijay.
