Legendary actor cum Bigg Boss host Kamal Haasan made a shocking announcement during the latest episode of Bigg Boss Ultimate, the OTT version of Bigg Boss Tamil which runs 24-hours on India's Disney + Hotstar platform. The actor revealed that he will be quitting from the ongoing reality show and released a press statement explaining the same.

The actor clarified that the production and post-production works of his upcoming movie 'Vikram' is clashing with the shooting schedule of Bigg Boss Ultimate, even though both schedules were meticulously planned initially. But due to the lockdown and restrictions that were imposed, it has become practically impossible to reschedule the dates and manage both projects simultaneously. Check out his press statement here:

The actor, however, will only be walking out of the OTT version of the show and will be returning to host the Bigg Boss Tamil S6 which will go on the floors on the third quarter of this year.

Previously, when the actor was infected with Covid-19, he was temporarily replaced by actress Ramya Krishnan. Now it is rumoured that the actress might return as the replacement for Kamal Haasan, and fans can expect a clash between Ramya and Vanitha if that happens.
