Bigg Boss 5 will see 'Ulaganayagan' Kamal Haasan returning as the host for the fifth consecutive time, with the show also set to air on Vijay Television and stream on DisneyPlus Hotstar. As the showrunners have remained tight-lipped about the list of contestants for the new season, blockbuster Tamil film director Venkat Prabhu, best known for his Chennai 6000028 films, Saroja, Goa and Mankatha, dropped a hint that strongly confirms popular YouTuber, VJ and actor Abishek Raaja's entry in Bigg Boss Tamil season 5. 

Venkat Prabhu, who is currently awaiting the release of his Maanaadu this Diwali in November and starring Silambarasan TR, extended his birthday wishes to Abishek Raaja on Saturday on Twitter and conveyed his regards for the next 100 days; suggesting his participation on Bigg Boss Tamil season 5. Abishek Raaja's name has been in the fray for sometime as one of the contestants in Bigg Boss 5 and Venkat Prabhu's latest tweet has also seen many fans commenting on the same. The Maanaadu director wrote, "Happy bday da  @cinemapayyan god bless!! Next 100 days unna nerla paakama irrukka vaazhrhukal!! Kalakku". Check out the tweet below:
