Chennai:

A petition has been filed in the Madras High Court to immediately stop reality TV show Bigg Boss Tamil, hosted by actor Kamal Haasan, reports said on Saturday.

In the PIL, Saravanan alias cine Saravanan has alleged that Bigg Boss Tamil has been hurting the sentiments of oppressed people. He has also alleged that the women contestants in the show were portrayed in vulgar and obscene manner and it plays with emotions and behaviours of female participants, reports said. 

Bigg Boss Tamil, which began more than a month ago, shows 15 male and female contestants were asked to live in a secluded home without cellphone and connection with the outside world. The rating of the show is said to be soaring but critics have been protesting against it, saying that the show is demeaning Tamil culture and women. 

Film actor Oviya, who is one of the participants, has become popular and her eviction has made her supporters jittery. “The dress code and behaviour of female contestants are very obscene and it makes my family members and myself uncomfortable to watch it,” Saravanan said.

Saravanan has said in his petition that the show must be subject to censorship before its telecast. “The show plays with mental emotions of 15 contestants and it must be restricted as soon as possible. He said according to the channel over three crore people were watching the programme and this is absolutely false.”

The PIL is expected to be taken up for hearing on Monday.
