Kamal Haasan is all set to make his television debut with Bigg Boss Tamil. The actor will host the first edition of the popular show in the Tamil language. In an exclusive interaction with CNN-News18, the actor revealed why it took him so long to make an appearance on the small screen. "Television came late into my life. I didn't grow up with a TV set and thus was vary of the medium until now," he said.

On being asked about the voyeurism that a show like Bigg Boss promotes, Haasan quipped, "Gossip is what drives us and then the next is the myth. Here we'd like to believe both." The promo released by Haasan for the show talks about societal issues. "With me this happens. I won't say it's my style, it's my anguish," he said.

Bigg Boss Hindi version has been hosted by Salman Khan for nearly seven seasons now. Now the makers want to grow their base in the south. Hence, roped in Haasan who wishes to bond genuinely with the contestants.
