While the Hindi version of Bigg Boss is helmed by Salman Khan, the Tamil version is being helmed for the first time by superstar Kamal Haasan. It’s a known fact that the Tamil version of the popular reality show is being hosted by superstar Kamal Haasan. Since the first promo of the show was unveiled, the excitement among the fans was different altogether.
Now, finally, the much-awaited details about the show are out. The first episode of Bigg Boss Tamil was premiered on 25 June during the prime time slot on Vijay Television (Star Vijay). The show will air at 9 pm on weekdays and 8.30 pm on weekends.
The 15 participants of the show include actors Sri, Anuya, Vyapuri, Gayatri Raghuram, Bharani, Raiza Wilson, Snehan, Oviya, Harathi, Aarav, Ganja Karupu, Ganesh Venkatraman, Shakti Vasu and Namitha. Julie, a girl who rose to fame during the Jallikattu row, is the only non-actor in the group.
The house has been created on a grander level. Bigg Boss Tamil house consists of treadmills, a smoking room, a pool, kitchen, dining table, big sofa, big confession room and lots of lavish things to accommodate 15 participants together.
During one of the interviews, Kamal Haasan had shared that he is going to follow Salman Khan’s footsteps by being a mentor to the contestants and not as a host. The South superstar wants to be as quirky as he can and genuine to the contestants as well as to the show.
