CHENNAI: Actor-politician Kamal Haasan, who returned from hospital on Saturday after recovering from COVID, took over as anchor of the reality show 'Bigg Boss Tamil 5' from actress Ramya Krishnan who had stepped in for him for a week.
Confirming his return, the makers of the reality show released their first promo showing Kamal Haasan hosting the event. In the promo, Kamal said, "I, who have recovered only because of your love, am back with you all again today."
முன்னெச்சரிக்கைகள் முடிந்தவரை காக்கும். அவற்றையும் மீறி சுகம் கெட்டால், நாம் எடுத்த நடவடிக்கைகளே நம்மை விரைவில் குணப்படுத்தவும் கூடும். தொற்றுத் தாக்கியும் விரைந்து மீண்டிருக்கிறேன். எத்தனை உள்ளங்கள் என்னலம் சிந்தித்தன என்றெண்ணியெண்ணி மகிழ்ந்து இருக்கிறேன். pic.twitter.com/IScdLsBjOL— Kamal Haasan (@ikamalhaasan) December 4, 2021
"This season, from what I have observed from the outside, I think people are playing as individuals. Each one has their own plans and strategy. Let's watch the outcomes of their strategies tonight," the star said, much to the delight of the fans who were sorely missing him in action.
Ramya Krishnan had to step in to anchor the show in Kamal's place for a week, after Kamal Haasan tested positive for COVID-19. The actor isolated himself and underwent treatment at the Sri Ramachandar Medical Centre in Porur from where he was discharged on Saturday.
