Looks like Ilathalapathy Vijay is all set to make waves on TV for a reality show — not just any reality show but one on the lines of Kaun Banega Crorepati for a leading TV channel. According to reliable sources, the channel is planning for a reality show similar to the successful show Kaun Banega Crorepati. Though many leading actors names were under consideration, the channel has zeroed down on Vijay, as they believe, a mass hero like Vijay would bring a whiff of fresh air to the channel.
Reportedly the channel had given the actor a ‘blank cheque’ to get the consent of him to hosting the new show and Vijay was reluctant to accept the offer. However, the channel was insistent that the show to be hosted by Vijay. Known for being choosy about what commercials he wants to feature in, Vijay seems to have given it a go ahead because of the immense popularity it had brought to Amitabh Bachchan and Shah Rukh Khan who had hosted similar shows in Hindi. It may be mentioning that a similar show – branded ‘Kodeeswaran‘(‘millionaire’ in Tamil) aired on SUN TV, hosted by actor Sarath Kumar turned out to be a flop.
The title and format of the show has been kept under wraps and the official announcement is expected to be made soon.
Looks like our Ilayathalapathy is trying to pinch in some class with his mass image. Whatcha think people?
