Actor Suriya opt out from Vijay TV’s Neengalum Vellalam Oru Kodi!

January 01, 2013

It’s official now: actor Suriya has opted out of the popular game show he had been hosting for Vijay TV. Titled Neengalum Vellalam Oru Kodi , the show was on air for a few months and was suddenly wrapped up a couple of months ago, prior to the release of Suriya’s latest film Maatraan, which had him playing conjoined twins. Neither Suriya’s acting nor could the bubbly Kajal Aggarwal’s presence save the film from courting disaster at the box-office.

Prakashraj, the actor-par-excellence has stepped in as Suriya’s replacement to host the show. The talk in the industry is that there can’t be a better replacement. The reason given by Suriya for opting out from hosting NVOK was that he had call-sheet problems. However, some ‘research’ into the reasons revealed something else.

Neengalum Vellalam Oru Kodi was watched by record audiences this year but also faced criticism for the relatively easy questions it had on offer for the contestants. When the show was wrapped up, it was said that its second ‘season’ would commence soon and now it dawns that it would be Prakashraj and not Suriya who would be hosting the show.

It is said that successive mediocre’s at the box-office has forced Suriya to rethink about hosting the show. Though Suriya cites lack of ‘dates’ to shoot the show, the reason for his opting out of the show is that he was wary of getting ‘far too familiar’ to the viewers and to his fans. After his last two films, Suriya is said to have been ‘advised’ by his close relatives and friends to stay off from the public eye for some time so that there would be a craving among fans to watch him on big-screen!
