CHENNAI: The Hindu Makkal Katchi on Wednesday demanded ban on the Tamil version of reality show "Bigg Boss" and wanted its host actor-filmmaker Kamal Haasan to be arrested for tarnishing Tamil culture.

In its police complaint, the nationalist Hindu party demanded that the contestants of the show, such as Oviya, Namitha, Ganja Karuppu and Harathi among others, be arrested as well. 

They claim the show is obscene. 

"The participants are mouthing obscene statements and are acting 75 per cent nude. It is also derogative of Tamil culture and hurts the sentiments of seven crore Tamilians," read the statement. 

"They should be arrested under law because they are hurting Tamil culture and the programme should be banned," the statement added.

The show, which went on air June 25 on Star Vijay, marks the television debut of Kamal Haasan.
