Ponnambalam finally ran out of luck as he is finally eliminated from Bigg Boss Tamil 2 after being nominated for the seventh consecutive week in Vijay TV's show. He is the sixth contestant to be evicted from Kamal Haasan-hosted show after Shariq Hassan, Mamathi Chari, Ananth Vaidyanathan, Ramya NSK and Nithya Balaji.

The surprising part of the process is that Kamal Haasan had entered the house and the elimination was announced his his presence. Ponnambalam was visibly happy to leave the house.

"I am honoured to be eliminated from the house in the presence of 'Thalaivar' (Kamal)," he respectfully said to the host after coming out of the house. He also apologised immediately for using "unparliamentary" words in the Bigg Boss Tamil house.

The veteran  actor was shown the video clippings of the two incidents when he lost his cool. The first incident about scolding Aishwarya and the second is about locking her neck in his hands during 'Rani Maharani' task. 

In fact, he called a woman to the stage to give a small demo on how he held Aishwarya in the task, while proving that it was not a deadly lock as presumed by many.

Ponnambalam also took questions from the people. One asked him why he liked Riythvika, whereas he had different feeling towards Aishwarya and Yashika for which he said, "For me, every girl inside the house was same. But I admit I quite liked her because she used to listen to whatever I used to say and it is natural that people likes such people," he claimed while revealing that the name Riythvika sounded similar to his daughter Kruthika's name.

The former stunt man ended on the note that he now he has nothing against Yashika and Aishwarya
