Actress Raadhika Sarathkumar who was last seen in Mr Local essaying actor Sivakarthikeyan‘s mother will now be hosting Kodeeswari, an all-women game show on Colors Tamil. The show is based on the famous ‘Who Wants To Be A Millionaire’ only with the exception that this will see only women on the ‘Hot Seat’. It is noteworthy that her spouse Sarathkumar was the host of a similar show Kodeeswaran which aired on Sun TV on weekends, a few years back.
The Tamil version of Who Wants To Be A Millionaire, Neengalum Vellalaam Oru Kodi, which aired on Vijay TV for three seasons saw three men hosting the show – actors Suriya Sivakumar, Prakash Raj, and Aravind Swami respectively. The show has now adopted a new format and will air on Colors TV with a woman hosting it for the first time.

“Women are an important part of human society, acting as the binding force. Amidst the cacophony to empower women, that has become a cliché across geographies and communities, I think, the need to simply acknowledge her for who she is and what she stands for has been lost. Kodeeswari shall be a platform where every contestant on the ‘Hot Seat’ shall be celebrated for who she is and her journey amidst all her personal challenges,” said actress Raadhika Sarathkumar.
Anup Chandrasekharan, Business Head at Colors Tamil said, “Shows like Enga Veetu Mapillai, Dance Vs. Dance, Singing Stars in the non-fiction space have generated tremendous buzz for the channel and we hope to maintain the same with our latest endeavour, Kodeeswari. We thank Radikaa for joining hands with us in this incredible journey.”
The selection process for the contestants began yesterday (October 28) and ends on November 2. Those who want to participate have to answer a question by SMS or Interactive Voice Response Service (IVRS) or by logging in to the Voot App.
