The showrunners of Bigg Boss Ultimate, the OTT version of Bigg Boss Tamil, have reportedly hired Silambarasan to host the weekend episodes, according to industry reports. However, an official confirmation is still pending.
The show’s original host Kamal Haasan opted out of the reality show to fulfil his shooting commitments for his next film Vikram, necessitating the search for a new host for Bigg Boss Ultimate.
“Because of the lock down and constraints imposed, we were compelled to rearrange the production operations for Vikram, which has inevitably resulted in overlap of dates required to be granted for Bigg Boss Ultimate.” Given that there are still a few days left to shoot the scenes, which feature a cast of some of the industry’s most well-known actors and technicians, it has become nearly difficult to manage both Vikram and Bigg Boss at the same time. It would be inequitable to make such illustrious actors and technicians wait for me, given their busy schedules and other obligations. As a result, I am now compelled to withdraw from this season of Bigg Boss,” Kamal remarked in an interview.
In a day or two, the showrunners are anticipated to reveal the new host of Bigg Boss Ultimate. The first Bigg Boss Ultimate edition was released at the end of January. On Disney Plus Hotstar, viewers may watch the show 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
