Veteran actress Ramya Krishnan will host the fifth season of the popular television reality show ‘Bigg Boss Tamil’ until the time the show’s original host Kamal Haasan recovers from Covid and returns to take over.

Kamal Haasan, who tested positive for Covid-19, is currently undergoing treatment in a private hospital in Chennai.

On Saturday, the makers of the reality show put out a promo that showed Kamal Haasan speaking from the hospital. The actor introduced actress Ramya Krishnan as a friend who had offered to help him conduct the show without a break.

Interestingly, the promo, in which Ramya Krishnan was introduced, had the music of ‘Baahubali’ as its background score. The south Indian actress is known across the country for her stellar role as Sivagaami in the blockbuster.

Soon after news broke out that Kamal had tested positive for Covid, there was widespread speculation on social media as to who would host the show in the actor’s absence. Rumour mills suggested that actress Shruthi Haasan had been approached by the makers of the show to host the weekend episodes in Kamal Haasan’s absence. There were also rumours that Ramya Krishnan and Vijay Sethupathi had been approached for the same purpose.

On Saturday, the speculation came to an end with the promo showing that it would be Ramya Krishnan who would be hosting it.

Ravi Teja, who was last seen in ‘Krack’, will soon be seen playing a double role in his upcoming film ‘Khiladi’.

With an intent to explore the existing craze for Telugu movies in Hindi, the makers of ‘Khiladi’ are eyeing to release the movie in Hindi as well.

A report says that the producers of ‘Khiladi’ have sold the Hindi-dubbed version rights to Pen Studios. Since the Allu Arjun starrer ‘Pushpa’ has become a big hit in the Hindi market, ‘Khiladi’ might make a good impression as well.

The movie’s Hindi-dubbed release rights have reportedly been bought by Pen Marudhar. Pen Studios, who has previously been associated with several Bollywood movies, is currently producing the Alia Bhatt starrer ‘Gangubai Kathiawadi’.

As there aren’t any notable Hindi movies releasing in the near future, the Ravi Teja starrer might be received well, the makers believe.

‘Khiladi’ will head to theatres on February 11. Starring Meenakshi Chaudhary and Dimple Hayathi, Ravi Teja will be seen in a dual role in ‘Khiladi. Helmed by Ravi Shankar, the movie is said to be a commercial action drama.

After ‘Khiladi’, Ravi Teja will be seen in ‘Ramarao On Duty’ followed by ‘Dhamaka’, ‘Ravanasura’ and ‘Tiger Nageshwarao’.

Ravi Teja is the only actor with back-to-back movies in his kitty even during the pandemic.

As the ‘Bigg Boss 15’ finale is just around the corner, the contestants were given one last task ‘BB Hotel’, where Tejasswi Prakash and Shamita Shetty got into a heated fight.

In the upcoming task, Tejaswwi and Shamita were the hotel staff. Other contestants were hotel guests. A live audience was also seen entering the ‘Bigg Boss 15’ and are supposed to vote out one member from the show in the new episode.

During the task, Tejasswi was supposed to give a massage to co-contestant and beau Karan Kundrra, who was not impressed by her skills and said: “Aesi kaunsi hotel staff hoti hai Yeh bakwaas massage kar rahi hai (Which hotel staff does this. This is such a bad massage she is giving me).”

Moments later, Shamita is seen giving Karan and Tejasswi pulls her by her leg.

Tejaswwi gets insecure and says: It’s Karan Kundrra and not Raqesh Bapat. Isse pahele aapne apne task ko kabhi nahi liya tha (You have never taken any task seriously.)”

Shamita defends herself by saying it’s just a massage. She later is seen giving a back massage to Prateik Sahajpal.

An angry Tejasswi, said: “That aunty is on top of this one too.”

This bothers Shamita, who retaliates saying: “There is an audience here, we are doing it for them — respect the audience.”

“It’s a task and you have no business calling me an aunty (Pointing at Karan) You should be ashamed that you did not take up for me.”

“She is crossing her lines and because of you I keep my mouth shut.. Karan, she has pulled me — Something in the outer world I would have handled very differently . How Dare she touch me and pull me,” Shamita said on the Colors show.
