Bigg Boss is the Indian version of international series Big Brother. The Hindi version of the show, which concluded in January, was hosted by Salman Khan. Also, the Telugu version has been taken up by Junior NTR.
Bigg Boss Tamil will be Kamal Haasan's debut television show. "When Vijay TV approached me to play host, I funnily quipped, who better than me right. All my life I have been under constant watch and I 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," Best Media Info quoted the 62-year-old actor as saying.
Last month, the trailer of the show was released by Kamal Haasan on social media 'with love.'
