Bigg Boss Tamil: PIL filed to ban reality show on grounds that it 'demeans women, downtrodden'

A PIL has been filed to stop popular Tamil reality show Bigg Boss in Madras High Court. Filed by Saravanan alias cine Saravanan. The PIL states that the show projects women in a pejorative manner and is hurtful towards the downtrodden, as per Deccan Chronicle. It also claims that the reality show, hosted by Kamal Haasan, denigrates women by playing with their emotions.

Saravanan told Deccan Chronicle that his family feels embarrassed while watching the show due to the obscene dress code followed by the women in the house.

Additionally, some remarks of the made by the inmates have also hurt the sentiments of the underprivileged, according to the complainant.

Inspired by american reality TV series Big Brother, Bigg Boss brings together celebrities under one roof. All channels of communication with the outside world are barred.

The mental and physical strength of the house members are tested in weekly tasks, which usually results in erratic behaviour and endless scuffles.

Although the show has been securing high TRPs ever since its premiere, critics have constantly slammed the show for depraving Tamil culture. Saravanan had initially sent a representation to the channel. However, he filed a litigation after not hearing from the channel. The matter will reportedly be taken up in Court on Monday, 7 August.
