Kamal Haasan To Host The Tamil Version Of ‘Bigg Boss’

Kamal Haasan will host the Tamil edition of the television reality show Bigg Boss. Haasan is already shooting for Sabhaash Naidu and Vishwaroopam 2, and admits that the new project could prove to be a handful given his hectic schedule.

In an interview with The Quint, Haasan said he had tried different roles as an entertainer, but never as a host for a television show. “Reality television is so far not a reality in my career. I want to see what it feels like,” he said.


He said, “I am running behind schedule because for eight months I wasn’t running at all, thanks to my fractured foot. I am now working simultaneously on completing the comedy Shabash Naidu and the post-production of Vishwaroop 2. The Bigg Boss schedules have been worked into my other commitments. Let’s see how it goes.”

The Hindi version of the show is being hosted by Bollywood star Salman Khan and is in its tenth season. Haasan was full of praise for Khan, and said, “I think Salman Khan is doing a wonderful job of connecting with the contestants on Bigg Boss. He has brought the ‘Brother’ Back into Bigg Boss.” The show follows the Big Brother format, originally created by John de Mol, and broadcast in the Netherlands.
