Som Shekar is now a household name among the people of Tamil Nadu, thanks to his active participation in the ongoing season of Bigg Boss Tamil. Som is a model, budding actor, and also a MMA (Mixed Martial Arts) player. He participated in one of Vijay TV’s earlier shows, ‘Azhagiya Tamil Magan’, and he was one among the finalists. He has also done several ad commercials in the past. However, his film career did not shape up the way he wanted it to and he confessed in Bigg Boss that many of the movies that he was a part of, never got released. In the hope of restarting his career afresh to get bigger opportunities in the film industry, Som took part in Bigg Boss and he has managed to garner good attention with his interesting gameplay.

Som is someone who has not expressed or shown any kind of hatred towards anyone and his positive character impressed the masses. He is currently one of the eight contestants inside the Bigg Boss house, along with Rio Raj, Gabriella, Aajeedh, Aari, Balaji Murugadoss, Ramya Pandian, and Shivani. If he manages to play well and strike a good balance, he is surely going to be one of the finalists of this season, but let us see how he plays his game in the coming days.
