One More Case Filed Against Kamal Haasan For Hosting Bigg Boss

A criminal defamation complaint has been filed against actor Kamal Haasan alleging that the actor has insulted a Tamil community on the July 14 episode of Bigg Boss Tamil which he hosts.

According to the complaint filed at the metropolitan magistrate court in Chennai, the ‘Nadaswaram’ — a musical instrument that is treated like ‘God’ by the Isai Vellalar community — was used in a ‘cavalier manner’.

The community’s president, KR Kuhesh, alleged that former contestant Shakthi P Vasu could be seen throwing the instrument from one hand to another. He also said that the ‘Nadaswaram’ was kept on the dining table where the participants ate, an action that insulted and damaged the ‘mindset of the Isai Vellalar community’.

The show is being telecast on Vijay TV since June 24. Kuhesh believes that this was done in an attempt to garner more viewers and TRPs. Alleging that the insult was intentional, Kuhesh said that he was forced to take the legal route as Vijay TV (the channel that hosts Bigg Boss), Bigg Boss producers Endemol India, and Kamal Haasan had not made any apology. The case will be heard by the court onSeptember 1.

 Meanwhile, in the latest episode of the show, host Kamal Haasan had surprisingly asked the audience to question Gayathri, the evicted contestant. Until now, Kamal would engage the contestant in a customary chat questioning, critiquing and appreciating the contestant about their journey as when and needed. But the veteran actor also explained why he chose to make this deviation. “There were comments that I have been partial to Gayathri as she was from my caste. I had to quell this notion and hence, this direct conversation,” clarified Kamal.
