Bigg boss Kamal’s views
Actor Kamal Hassan who hosted the Bigg Boss 1 Tamil and continues with the second part marvelled how this takes his real personality closer to people and his views on the show. He had a word of caution that life is full of perspectives and enunciated it with a video of a man trying to save a child and on the way unintentionally pushes a woman down. He spoke further on the slogan of the season 2, ‘whose good? Who’s bad?’ and on watching the housemates to find the answer. Eventually, it all comes down to bigg boss tamil vote in determining the good and bad person in the end of the show and stay tuned to take part in voting.
