Star plans to rope in Rajnikant for Tamil KBC

News Television India, after the resounding success of Kaun Banega Crorepati, is now planning to rope in Rajnikant to launch a Tamil version of the game show. Sources close to Star TV said that negotiations with Rajnikant had begun but are yet to be sealed.

Star TV’s move is being seen as being aimed at taking on the Sun TV-produced Kodeeswaran, the game show hosted by another South Indian actor, Sharath Kumar, which has pushed Sun TV to the top of the charts among the regional channels. It could not, however, be ascertained, that through which channel, News Television was planning to launch the game show. It does not have any regional channel, but has a 12 per cent stake in UTV, which in turn, owns the Tamil channel, Vijay TV.
