Veteran actor Kamal Haasan, the host of the Tamil version of reality show Bigg Boss slammed critics who objected to the reality programme claiming that the show was demeaning Tamil culture and depicting absence content.

The Hindu Makkal Katchi group filed a complaint with the commissioner of police seeking arrest of Haasan along with the arrest of the 14 contestants on the show, alleging that Bigg Boss was airing 'demeaning Tamil culture'.

Claiming that the allegations were being made by people who have too much time on their hands, Haasan said, "What is so objectionable about the content in Bigg Boss that is against Tamil culture?"

Social media users had also expressed concerns about the language used on the show, however, the reality show received the most ire after non-Tamil speaking contestants fumbled with the words of the regional anthem Tamil Thai Vaazhtu and the content was aired on a private TV channel.

Haasan defended the episode, saying that it was an attempt to learn the language by non-native speakers.

"How many of us would have uttered the words in the national anthem incorrectly? Did we ever consider that as an act of disrepute to the national anthem?" he said.

"If these allegations had any rationale to it, I would have apologised, " Haasan added.

The group that filed the complaint has targeted the actor in the past as well, and in March alleged that Haasan made 'derogatory' remarks on the Mahabharata.

Following the complaint, Haasan expressed confidence in the judiciary and said that he believed it would protect him.
