Chennai: Kamal Haasan will be the host of the Tamil version of BIGG BOSS to be aired on Vijay TV from mid June. This is Kamal Haasan’s
first foray into television and the excitement is palpable among his fans. Kamal Haasan's social commitment and his bold opinions on
social injustice, especially his recent  tenacious critique on state politics makes him an inimitable choice.
The International  format is being introduced for first time in the Tamil market and on Vijay TV, which has always had it good when it
comes to unique content offering in the Non Fiction Space. The show would see the coming together of 15 Celebrities in a posh
house with all the amenities but are completely cut off from technology and the outside world for 100 days.
When asked on choosing BIGG BOSS as his first foray into television, Kamal Haasan said, "When Vijay TV approached me to play
host , I funnily quipped , who better than me right -- all my life have been under a constant watch and  have been judged on whatever
I have done, public or private. But now roles are reversed as I would stand with the audiences and watch these celebrities in the
house survive this ordeal.”
The format BIG BROTHER which has had 10 successful seasons in Hindi as BIG BOSS with Salman playing host has also had  its
regional success in Kannada and Bengali. Bigg Boss, the show, attempts to provide a look into the behaviour of celebrities under
surveillance. Apart from enduring the Weekly Tasks,  the inmates  have the arduous task of nominating their colleagues for
elimination. Last man standing wins, in a format which is an emotional roller coaster ride for inmates and audiences.
“We are  keen to leverage the uniqueness of the format, the reality appetite of Tamil audiences and a great host like Kamal Haasan not
only to drive ratings but to put out cutting edge and innovative content," says Krishnan Kutty, GM, Vijay TV.
Bigg Boss will air on Prime time Monday to Sunday 9 p.m on weekdays and 8.30 p.m on weekends.
