The Hindu Makkal Katchi on Wednesday demanded ban on the Tamil version of reality show “Bigg Boss” and wanted its host actor-filmmaker Kamal Haasan to be arrested for tarnishing Tamil culture.
According to the fringe group, the show is against Tamil culture. The group has filed the complaint with the Chennai Police Commissioner and they demanded that the contestants of the show – such as Oviya, Namitha, Ganja Karuppu and Harathi among others -be arrested as well.
“The participants are mouthing obscene statements and are acting 75% nude. It is also derogative of Tamil culture and hurts the sentiments of seven crore Tamilians,” read the statement.
The actor had said, “In Mahabharata, Panchali was used as a pawn while the men gambled. She was used as a collateral and India is a country that respects and honours a book that revolves around men using a woman to gamble away as if she was a mere object.”
