Chennai: Tamil superstar Surya is all set to don the hat of quizmaster for the Tamil version of ‘Kaun Banega Crorepati’. Titled as ‘Neengalum Vellalam Oru Kodi’, the show will go on air from mid Januray 2012.
According to sources, the show will kick start around Pongal and questions for the qualifying rounds will start airing soon. The Hindi version of the show had catapulted Amitabh Bachchan to a superstar status and had given him a new lease in his professional front.
Ever since the first season, the show has been adapted on different regional channels. Shah Rukh Khan had hosted the second season while Saurav Ganguly and Shatrughan Sinha hosted the Bengali and Bhojpuri versions respectively.
Surya, who has an immense fan following down south, will be making his debut on small screen with the new show.
