Bigg Boss Tamil, the reality TV show that caught the attention of everyone last year, is back on Vijay TV from Sunday.

Season-2 is hosted by Kamal Haasan again. In the premiere last night, he introduced 16 contestants, who entered the house to try their luck in the show.

The participants this year are actress Yashika Aanand of Iruttu Arayil Murattu Kuthu fame, villain actor Ponnambalam, Mahath Raghavendra of Mangatha and Jilla-fame, comedians Daniel Annie Pope and Senrayan, granddaughter of Tamil writer Saavi, RJ Vaishnavi, actress Janani Iyer, Super Singer-fame Ananth Vaidyanathan, playback singer Ramya NSK, actress Riythvika of Madras fame, actress Mumtaz, VJ Balaji, his wife Nithya, anchor Mamathi Chari, Shariq Haasan, son of celebrity couple Riyaz Khan and Uma Riyaz, actress Aishwarya Dutta.

In the last season, participants included Julie, choreographer and actress Gayathri, lyricist Snehan, actresses Oviya, Namitha, Bindhu Madhavi, models Raiza and Aarav. After almost 100 days of stay inside the house, Aarav emerged winner.

The inmates are not permitted to talk in any language other than Tamil. They are not supposed to tamper with any of the electronic equipment or any other thing in the house. They cannot leave the house premises at any time except when permitted to. They cannot discuss the nomination process with anyone. They cannot sleep during the day.

Sometimes, the housemates may be nominated for other reasons, such as by a person who has achieved special privileges (via tasks or other things), for breaking rules or something else. If something is very serious, a contestant may be evicted directly.


Actress Oviya, who garnered a lot of attention last year and won a huge fan base, is appearing as a guest this time around. She entered the house last in the premiere show yesterday.
