Actor-politician Kamal Haasan came up with the promo of Bigg Boss Tamil 5 a week ago, putting the speculation surrounding his unavailability for the show to rest. The 20-second promo teaser, which had him dressed in a stylish blazer and a denim jeans, began with Anirudh's music from his upcoming film Vikram playing in the background, leaving Kamal fans into a tizzy. 

The Ulaganayagan staring at the camera and asking Aarambikalama (the popular catch phrase from Vikram's teaser) was more than what fans could have asked for. The show, which will stream on Disney+ Hotstar, was initially supposed to begin its telecast in June, but was postponed owing to the second wave of COVID-19.          

A few days ago, he posted another video from his Twitter account, which was set against the backdrop of a wedding, hinting that the upcoming season of the reality show is going to be a roller-coaster ride. Fans of the show, who have followed all the four seasons religiously, started speculating names of the contestants for the fifth season on social media. Though it is expected that the team will make an announcement of the participants in the show which is likely to commence in October, a few names are said to have leaked from the team, and is going viral on social media.

Actress Shakeela's daughter Mila's name was the first to have did the rounds. A few other names in the tentative contestants list include Pradhayini, Pavani Reddy, Abhinay, Masoom Shankar, Suzane George, Cooku With Comali fame Kani, Aishwarya, Sunitha and GP Muthu. Meanwhile, actress-turned-filmmaker Lakshmy Ramakrishnan took to social media to clarify that she is not part of the show, contrary to rumours of her participation in it.  

She tweeted, "I am seeing my name in the bigboss contestant list, every season. I am not part of #BiggBossTamil5 pls remove my name from the list, I am clarifying this once for all (sic)."
