Kannada star Yash will be hosting the Kannadada Kotyadhipathi show instead of Puneeth Rajkumar this time around.

The first two seasons of this show were host by the Power Star of Sandalwood, Puneeth Rajkumar, but this time around, he has opted out following his film assignments and other TV programmes that he has agreed to host.

The Kannadada Kotyadhipathi is a popular reality show telecast on Star Suvarna with high TRPs. With Yash taking over the mantle from Puneeth Rajkumar, fans are eager to see him hosting the reality show.

Yash, incidentally, started out his career by acting in TV serials before making it big in the film industry. Though it is the first time he is hosting a reality show, he has acted in TV serials such as Uttarayana, Nanda Gokula, Preethi Illada Mele, Male Billu and Shiva before foraying into the film industry. In 2007, he made his debut by playing a supporting role in Jambada Hudugi and the next year he went on to win the Filmfare Award For Best Supporting Actor – Male for the film Moggina Manasu.

Since then, Yash has acted in a number of films including Drama, Chandra, Googly, Gajakesari, and Santhu Straight Forward. He is currently busy with KGF, which is written and directed by Prashanth Neel. The film is being bankrolled by Vijay Kiragandur under the banner Hombale Films on a budget of Rs, 50 crores.

The star cast of KGF includes Srinidhi Ramesh Shetty as the female lead with Achyuth Kumar, Nassar, Malavika Avinash, Anant Nag and Vasishta N. Simha playing supporting roles. Ravi Basrur is the music composer for this film. According to reports, KGF will be released in different languages including Tamil, Telugu, Hindi, Malayalam and Kannada. Well, Yash’s fans are now gearing up to see him in a new avatar!
