The rumours of Kamal Haasan hosting the Tamil version of ‘Bigg Boss’ have finally been confirmed, according to recent reports.
In a recent interview Haasan said, “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.”
‘Bigg Boss’ is one of the most popular reality TV shows in India and has been hosted by a number of Bollywood stars such as Arshad Warsi, Amitabh Bachchan and Sanjay Dutt, with Salman Khan hosting most of the seasons, reports DNA India.
Other than completing the comedy ‘Shabash Naidu’ (2016) and the post production of ‘Vishwaroopam II,’ he has yet another show on his list. The interview further quoted him as saying, “Oh yes! As you know, 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 Vishwaroopam II. The Bigg Boss schedules have been worked into my other commitments. Let’s see how it goes.”
Haasan then went on to discuss his thoughts on ‘Bigg Boss’ himself. “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,” referring to the original British reality show Big Brother on which Bigg Boss is modelled. He also adds, “Salman genuinely bonds with the contestants on Bigg Boss. There is no pretension or patronising in his attitude. Being friendly comes naturally to him. And he gives advice as a friend, not as a mentor. There is none of the I-know-better superiority in his attitude. I’d also like to bond genuinely with the contestants, though how it goes will depend entirely on how they perceive me, as a friend or as a mentor.”
He finished off by adding, “I’ve a fairly comprehensive gasp on human nature. Yeah, I think I’m qualified to give advice. Let’s see how it goes. Stepping into a new territory is always exciting.”
