Citing date issues, actor Kamal Haasan has apologized for hosting the remaining episodes of the hit reality show “Bigg Boss Ultimate.”
Earlier, Kamal Haasan said in a statement: “The pandemic and the resulting lockdowns and restrictions rightly imposed by the government have caused chaos and forced us to reschedule the production and post-production of our upcoming film ‘Vikram’. .
“We had meticulously planned up to this point to ensure that the production schedule of ‘Vikram’ does not affect my obligations to Bigg Boss, a show that is very close to my heart. So much so, I didn’t allow any personal discomfort I would have had after personally having Covid,” he said.
The actor went on to say: “The reshuffling of production activities for Vikram which has been forced due to lockdowns and restrictions imposed has inevitably led to an overlap of dates to be allocated for Bigg Boss Ultimate.
“Given that there are still several days of shooting to complete the scenes with the combination of some of the film industry’s most prominent stars and technicians, it has become practically impossible to compare both ‘Vikram’ and ‘Bigg Boss’. ‘ to manage. ‘ together. It would be unfair to keep such eminent stars and technicians waiting for me, given their schedules and other obligations. As a result, I am now forced to unsubscribe from this season of Bigg Boss Ultimate after February 20.”
