The fourth season of Bigg Boss Tamil was a huge success and it turned out to be a great source of entertainment for the people of Tamil Nadu during the lockdown. Actor Aari Arujunan was declared as the title winner of the fourth season and his victory received an overwhelming reception. Aari earned a huge fan base through the show and it also gave a breakthrough for several other young talents. Following the success of Bigg Boss 4 Tamil, the makers of the show have initiated the works for the next edition - Season 5. The fifth season of Bigg Boss Tamil is expected to start around the second or third week of June, like how it usually happens.

The fourth season of Bigg Boss happened between October - January because of the Covid situation, but the fifth season is expected to happen as per the old tradition of June - October. The first round of speculated contestants list was revealed recently and the list had names like actor Nakkhul, Kani Thiru (Cook with Comali fame), Sunita Gogoi, Sam Vishal (Super Singer), Mansoor Ali Khan, and others. Among the rumoured list of contestants, actor Nakkhul has openly come out and denied the speculations. He clarified that he has not been approached by the makers of the show yet, and even if they approach, he wouldn't be interested to take part in the show.

Talking in a video, Nakkhul said, "Many people are sending me posts that say I am joining Bigg Boss 5. I hereby clarify that no one from the team has approached me yet. Even if they, how would I be able to go, when I have this gem (pointing at his newborn daughter) around me?". Through this video, Nakkhul has made it clear that he will not be a part of Bigg Boss, even if he gets an offer. Nakkhul and his wife were blessed with a baby girl recently and the couple named her Akira. Nakkhul seems to be having a beautiful time with his daughter and he is not ready to lose the smaller happiness of life. The other rumoured contestants of Bigg Boss 5 are yet to confirm or deny the news and we will wait for further updates.

Nakkhul, on his acting front, will next be seen in the film Eriyum Kannadi in which he will be paired opposite Sunainaa for the third time after Kadhalil Vizhunthen and Maasilamani.
