Actor Kamal Haasan has returned to Bigg Boss Tamil’s season 5 sets after recovering from Covid-19. The actor was seen on the sets of the reality show on Saturday as he shot for the weekend special episodes. He joined work right after getting discharged from Sri Ramachandra Medical Centre where he was admitted on November 22 after being tested positive for Covid-19.
The makers of Bigg Boss Tamil shared a video on YouTube in which Kamal Haasan addressed the viewers and thanked them for their love and wishes. In the promo, the veteran actor said, “I, who have recovered only because of your love, am back with you all again today. This season, from what I have observed from the outside, I think people are playing as individuals. Each one has their own plans and strategy. Let’s watch the outcomes of their strategies tonight.” In his absence, Ramya Krishnan took over as the host of the show.

முன்னெச்சரிக்கைகள் முடிந்தவரை காக்கும். அவற்றையும் மீறி சுகம் கெட்டால், நாம் எடுத்த நடவடிக்கைகளே நம்மை விரைவில் குணப்படுத்தவும் கூடும். தொற்றுத் தாக்கியும் விரைந்து மீண்டிருக்கிறேன். எத்தனை உள்ளங்கள் என்னலம் சிந்தித்தன என்றெண்ணியெண்ணி மகிழ்ந்து இருக்கிறேன். pic.twitter.com/IScdLsBjOL

He also thanked a host of other celebrities from the film world for their best wishes, including his ‘dear friend’ Rajinikanth and ‘dear brother’ Ilaiyaraaja. In the note, he stated that director Lokesh and his Vikram unit efficiently handled his absence. And lastly, he wholeheartedly thanked “Tamil people, who, considering me as one of their own, shed tears for me and kept me in their prayers. I do not know if prayers yield results. But I do know the power of your love.”
