Ganesh Venkatraman to host Crime Patrol in Tamil
India's longest-running reality crime television series, Crime Patrol is getting a Tamil version that will star Ganesh Venkatraman as the anchor
India's longest-running reality crime television series, Crime Patrol, which has been on the air for over 16 years, is getting a Tamil version that will star Ganesh Venkatraman as the anchor. The web series is set to be launched on the digital streaming platform SonyLIV. Interestingly, the original Crime Patrol is part of Sony Entertainment Television India.
Ganesh, who is known for films such as Abhiyum Naanum and Unnaipol Oruvan, and for being a finalist on Bigg Boss Tamil Season 1, will step into the shoes of Anup Soni, who has been the anchor of the Hindi version of the series for years.
In a statement, Ganesh said, “Creating awareness about crimes is a serious job and I am happy to work with a very passionate team of technicians for the same. I truly believe Crime Patrol is not just a format-breaking series but a path-breaking one for the Tamil audiences. My grandfather was a police officer and my father is a lawyer, so naturally, law and order runs in my blood. My tough cop roles have been always appreciated by Tamil audiences, so I am super excited to don a new avatar piecing together these crimes for them. Shooting for the series is turning out to be a fantastic experience. My best wishes to SonyLIV for a successful launch in Tamil.”
Crime Patrol Tamil will go live shortly on SonyLIV.
