"I have kissed in my films more than a decade ago. Are they seeking my arrest belatedly?" the outspoken actor told reporters.
He rubbished claims that the show denigrated Tamil culture, wondering how the reality show would adversely impact Tamil culture that wasn't affected by his intimate romantic scenes in movies such as the 1978 movie "Sattam En Kaiyil" (Law is in my hands) in which he played the lead role.
Apart from the actor, the group, Hindu Makkal Katchi also wanted the contestants in the reality show to be arrested for their "obscene statements" in the reality show hosted by Mr Haasan, his debut television performance. The fringe pro-Hindu group also claimed that the show being aired from June 25 was "hurting Tamil culture".
The celebrated actor called the Tamil version of Bigg Boss a social experiment on co-existence and said he wouldn't have hesitated to apologise if he was in the 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.
