During a recent interaction with the media, a member of the Puthiya Tamizhagam said that he would file a defamation case against actor Kamal if does not apologise for the cuss words used on ‘Bigg Boss’. He went on to add that the ‘Ulaga Nayagan’ had made a big mistake by refusing to condemn the use of the derogatory word ‘Cheri’ (slum-dweller) on the show.
“The actor did not even condemn it or talk about this in the show despite many people raising this issue. So we demanded that he and the channel owners publicly apologise for it. We waited for two days and they have not even considered our request. So we have decided to go ahead with a 100 crore defamation case against the actor and the channel,” he added.
Well, we must say that this a sensitive situation and it will be worth watching what happens next.
Interestingly, this comes just days after, an activist group called for a ban on ‘Bigg Boss’ and asked the authorities to arrest Haasan and the participants. Explaining these demands, the group had claimed that ‘Bigg Boss’ was an insult to Tamil culture.
On a related note, Haasan also found himself in the midst of an ugly controversy when, during a press conference, he ended up revealing the name of an actress who was assaulted earlier this year. Following this, the NCW sent him a notice and asked him to apologise for his actions. All in all, this a difficult time for Haasan at a personal and professional level.
