Responding to the right wing group, Hindu Makkal Katchi’s call for the ban of reality show Bigg Boss Tamil and the arrest of host Kamal Haasan, on alleged ‘obscenity’ during the show, Kamal Haasan on Wednesday cleared that he would not be rattled by the attack which he called "rabble rousing”. In a clear but sharp retort he said that his critics were late in demanding an arrest on him as he had done intimate scenes in many movies.
“I have kissed in my films more than a decade ago. Are they seeking my arrest belatedly?” the actor posed.
Apart from the actor being held, the Hindu Makkal Katchi activists also wanted the contestants to be arrested for ‘obscene comments’. The fringe group also claimed that the show was hurting ‘Tamil culture’.
He shunned the claims made by the group, by saying what difference the show would make if his 1978 movie, "Sattam En Kaiyil" (Law is in my hands) which had intimate, romantic scenes was welcomed by the people wholeheartedly without doing any harm to the culture.
Kamal Haasan added that he was not afraid of the group also adding that Indian "law and justice" would protect him.
“If they want to arrest me, let it happen,” he said at a Press conference hurriedly called on Wednesday to reply to the arrest demand.
SOuth Indian movie superstar, Kamal Haasan, called his debut television performance, the Tamil version of Bigg Boss, a social experiment on co-existence and also added that he would not hesitate to apologise if he was wrong. "If they have a rightful claim, I will apologise myself. But I will not this time, I believe in what I do," he said.
