Kamal Haasan’s ‘Bigg Boss’ has been in the limelight for a variety of reasons. Now, a criminal defamation complaint was today filed in a Chennai court against actor Kamal Haasan alleging that he had degraded a particular community in the July 14 episode of TV show ‘Bigg Boss’, which he hosts.
As per reports on Deccan Chronicle, the complaint was filed in a magistrate court. The hearing for this case will be held on September 1st.
Stating that ‘Nadaswaram’, a musical instrument, which is treated like ‘god’ by the Isai Vellalar community, its president K R Kuhesh, submitted that in one of the episodes, actor Sakthi was seen throwing it from one hand to the other in a cavalier manner.
The petitioner also said that the contestants of the show had placed the musical instrument on the dining table. The president of the community claimed that Vijay TV, host Kamal Haasan, and Bigg Boss producers had done ‘this’ deliberately, and it was not right that host Kamal Haasan had not apologised for his actions.
Before this a Rs 100 crore defamation case was already filed against the actor for another controversy. Reportedly on one of the episodes, one of the contestant insulted another with a derogatory word and the host, Kamal Haasna did not take action. They gave him a two day ultimatum before they slapped a case at the actor. In fact, many Hindu groups have wanted to ban the show as it went against Tmail culture and tradition.
