CHENNAI: Alleging that reality show Bigg Boss contained vulgar words and obscene and objectionable scenes, a PIL has been filed in the Madras High Court to ban its telecast.

M R Saravanan alias Cine Saravanan claimed he was filing the PIL to protect Tamil culture and tradition and in the interest and welfare of the general public.

The dress worn by the women participants and their behaviour are so vulgar and obscene that no one can watch the programme with family members.

The reference to  ‘cheri (slum) behaviour’, made by a participant greatly hurt the sentiments of the downtrodden people, petitioner said and added that he sent a representation to the makers of the show on July 29, but there was no response.
