Kamal Haasan is currently dealing with a fringe Hindu group – Hindu Makkal Katchi’s complaint about Bigg Boss Tamil and how the show is destroying the Tamil Hindu culture. The actor who was a part of a press conference regarding this issue, also spoke about the recent Malayalam actress abduction case, the investigation of which has resulted in the arrest of actor Dileep. Even the victim had reacted to Dileep’s arrest recently and mentioned that the two had no business dealings.
As per Deccan Chronicle, Kamal said, “Why is it the safety of women in the film industry alone? A female’s presence in the crowd is important to me and I will not let anything happen to her. It’s our duty to see if you are safe. It is not just about actresses. We are not supporting her (Kamal mentioned the name here, because she is an actress).” Many present at the conference pointed out that he shouldn’t be naming the victim, to which the actor replied, “It doesn’t matter if I have used the name. The media itself have used her name. Do not hide the name as there is nothing wrong with it. If you want to call her Draupadi, call her that. Don’t refer to her as ‘a female’.”
