Originally, the event was supposed to be shot in June. Once the lockdown came into effect, the channel had planned to shoot it in July-August. Since Kamal Haasan is committed to projects like Indian 2 and Thalaivan Irukkiran, there were doubts of the actor hosting the fourth season. Now, a latest report has tried to put an end to the confusions.
