Surya’s ‘Neengalum Vellalam Oru Kodi’ has got the TRP’s running at an all time high. Becoming a household name, the show has the star actor quizzing contestants on a variety of topics to win the prized ‘Oru Kodi’ cheque. Leaving aside all that money, it’s the actor’s charisma that has become the talk of town.
In a quizmaster role, Surya is seen welcoming eager contestants to make it through a round of 15 life saving questions. The first week saw candidates take home some and loose some. Those who made it to the hot seat were more than content to sit face to face with the star actor, as they chit chatted on national television. The actor cites Bollywood veteran Amitabh Bachchan as his sole inspiration. Taking up this small screen role, he personally visited Amitabh’s KBC sets in Mumbai, which is now into its fifth season. Spending a full day interacting with the Bollywood hero, it turned out to be a rewarding learning session for the actor. Infact Amitabh himself wanted the actor to take up the Tamil version of KBC as he encouraged Surya, to “rock on the show”. Fans can catch Surya’s Neengalum Vellalam Oru Kodi at 8 P.M in Star Vijay TV, every Monday to Thursday.
A rocking first week it has been, as the show rolls into the month of March.
