Kamal Haasan may make his television debut very soon. If sources in the tinsel town are to be believed, a private satellite television channel has approached the Ulaga Nayagan to host the Big Boss showâ€™s Tamil version. The reality show, which is highly popular in Hindi and Kannada, is soon to be made in Tamil as well. While the Hindi version has been hosted by the Bollywood stars Amitabh Bachchan, Salman Khan, Sanjay Dutt and Arshad Warsi, Sudeep has been hosting the Kannada version since its inception in 2013. Talks are on with Kamal and an official word on it is expected to be out soon.
Kamal has been facing a series of unfortunate incidents in the recent past such as a leg fracture, death in the family and break-up with his live-in partner Gauthami. Reports also suggest that Kamal has temporarily stalled the making of Sabaash Naidu, a film based on the character Balram Naidu he had played in Dasavatharam. Incidentally, the actorâ€™s Vishwaroopam 2, which is said to have been completed, is also facing issues over its release.
Recently, Rajinikanth had said that he is worried about Kamalâ€™s financial position and didnâ€™t know how he was going to make money. To this, Kamal had replied, "Rajini is also like my elder brother. I will ask him for ideas. I have many people who support me, enlightened people, those who are blessed in the arts...Rajini is among them."
Sabaash Naidu, which commenced in the US amidst a lot of fanfare, got into trouble when its director TK Rajeev Kumar fell ill. Immediately after, Kamal Haasan, who plays the RAW officer in the film, took over the reins as the director. The team completed shooting in the US and reached India to begin the second schedule when Kamal had fallen off the staircase at his residence which resulted in a leg fracture.
While reports are rife that the star may go on to revive his 20-year-old dream project Marudhanayagam, the buzz that he is all set to make his television debut has his fans excited. An official word about Kamalâ€™s small screen debut is still awaited.
