Kamal Hassan….! According to the latest industry rumours, actor-filmmaker Kamal Haasan is set to return as the host of Bigg Boss Tamil 5. An official confirmation, on the other hand, is still awaited. The new season will begin in the coming months.
Kamal has been the popular reality show’s face since its inception in 2017. According to reports, Kamal has a five-year contract with the showrunners.
Kamal benefited from Bigg Boss’ success because he was going through a difficult period both personally and professionally at the time.
He had suffered multiple fractures in his leg, forcing him to postpone his ambitious project Sabash Naidu, a spin-off based on the popular character Balram Naidu from Dasavatharam.
He had also broken up with her. Bigg Boss not only helped him recover, but it also gave him a platform to promote his political beliefs and his political party, Makkal Needhi Maiam.
He was also unapologetic about using his time on the weekend episodes to campaign for his political party. Meanwhile, Kamal is juggling multiple projects.
His much-anticipated film Indian 2, the sequel to the 1996 blockbuster, is embroiled in legal wrangling due to disagreements between the film’s director Shankar and production company Lyca Productions.
The film was delayed due to a freak accident that killed three of Shankar’s assistants. While Shankar wishes to move on to another project, Lyca has taken the matter to court.
Meanwhile, with Lokesh Kanagaraj, Kamal also signed a film. With a fascinating and elegant teaser, the film, titled Vikram, has already caused great excitement among movie enthusiasts.
