MUMBAI: COLORS Tamil, the youngest Tamil general entertainment channel of India has announced the upcoming Tamil version of world famous game show Who Wants To Be A Millionaire as an all women edition. Titled Kodeeswari the show will be hosted by the iconic superstar of Tamil Cinema, Radikaa Sarathkumar. In a first ever, the show will see only women on the Hot Seat.

“Women have always put the dreams of their loved ones ahead of their own. Kodeeswari is a tribute to the unconditional love and selfless sacrifice made by millions of women every day and everywhere. It is a show that believes in giving back, in resurrecting modest ambitions, in giving dreams an opportunity to come true. Because hearts that beat for others should never skip a beat for themselves.” Said Viacom18  regional entertainment Ravish Kumar, Head adding, “COLORS Tamil proudly announces Kodeeswari - an all-women edition of the popular quiz show hosted by the highly accomplished and iconic Radhika Sarathkumar. In a first ever, the show will see only women on the hot seat. With the support and encouragement of their loved ones, women shall play for an opportunity to make their own dreams come true.”

Commenting on the launch of ‘Kodeeswari’, COLORS Tamil  business head Anup Chandrasekharan said: “At COLORS Tamil, we have always identified the pulse of the audience and presented to them offerings that are unique and coming of age. Shows like Enga Veetu Mapillai, Dance Vs. Dance, Singing Stars in the non-fiction space have generated tremendous buzz for the channel and we hope to maintain the same with our latest endeavour, ‘Kodeeswari’. As we begin our audition process, we urge all inspired and educated women of Tamil Nadu to participate in this once in a lifetime opportunity to take the Hot Seat with none other than Radikaa Sarathkumar. We thank Radikaa for joining hands with us in this incredible journey.”

“Women are an important part of human society, acting act as the binding force. Amidst the cacophony to empower women, that has become a cliché across geographies and communities, I think, the need to simply acknowledge her for who she is and what she stands for, has been lost. ‘Kodeeswari’ shall be a platform where every contestant on the Hot Seat shall be celebrated for who she is and her journey amidst all her personal challenges”, said Radikaa Sarathkumar, who will host Kodeeswari.

To be a part of this prestigious and women-exclusive game show, one needs to stay tuned to COLORS Tamil every day at 8PM starting October 28th (Monday) to November 3rd (Sunday). Each question will be active for 24-hours. Just one right answer from these seven questions can help one get a chance to participate in the show.
