One show that has enchanted fans around the country ever since its inception is the hit reality program Bigg Boss, which has received stellar feedback from fans everywhere in all the versions it has been telecast. Likewise, Bigg Boss in Tamil is currently in its fifth season and has witnessed a phenomenal viewership so far in line with its previous editions and is being hosted by actor-politician 'Ulaganayagan' Kamal Haasan. As Bigg Boss Tamil season 5 is nearing its end, with the show's grand finale expected to take place around mid-January 2022, there is now a strong buzz on social media that the show will be getting an exclusive OTT version and will reportedly be premiering exclusively on the DisneyPlus Hotstar streaming platform. 

Bigg Boss Tamil OTT will not be like its parent version that is also being telecast on Vijay Television. The news is doing the rounds after Bigg Boss OTT in Hindi hosted by blockbuster Bollywood filmmaker Karan Johar turned out to be an astounding success. Bigg Boss OTT in Hindi had begun streaming in August on VOOT for over a period of six weeks and was bankrolled by Endemol India. With speculations surrounding Bigg Boss Tamil OTT rife on social media, there is also a talk among fans about who will be hosting the show and how many contestants will be coming on board. Considering it is being suggested that Bigg Boss OTT might be launched soon, fans are wondering if Kamal Haasan will host the show as he has been the face of Bigg Boss Tamil on Vijay TV since it began in 2017. It is also rumored that contestants from Bigg Boss Tamil season 1 to 4 might be appearing as contestants on the OTT version of the show and an official statement is now awaited for a clear picture.
