Kamal Hassan on late Friday night took to Twitter to clear his stand on the row on Tamil version of Bigg Boss, which is under fire of a Hindu outfit for diminishing Tamil culture. They are throwing darts at me but it won't work.

Reportedly, Kamal took the name of the heroine, who was the victim of "sexual assault" and said that media should not hide her name especially after she had come out in open and filed a case against her wrongdoers. "U r penalizing the lawyer and missing criminals (sic)". Yeh hai Mahabharath katha. His series of tweets said, "Apologize say women, while I love & fight 4them".

"Cant name her? Name her after my mother or my daughter". Jago My lady bharath. If you want to call her Draupadi, then call her.

I think I'm here because I've been working not only the last few days, but longer time, getting ready for this kind of moment. Since then, her form has been patchy.

Haasan was addressing the media regarding a complaint raised by a fringe Hindu Group over the ongoing Tamil reality TV show, 'Bigg Boss, ' which he hosts. "It is very arrogant to say that somebody else has said it so I will say it too", she said, adding that the letter would be sent soon. In fact, he doesn't even need to use the word "sorry" - he could just say, "I didn't mean to say it".

Kumaramangalam, who conceded that she felt "strongly" about public figures being "insensitive", had issued a notice to actor Salman Khan for "trivialising rape" in a press meet in Mumbai last July.

Kamal's action is expected to land him in trouble as the Women's Commission in Kerala had recently filed a complaint against Malayalam actors Dileep Salim Kumar and Aju Varghese for naming or commenting bad about the actress, who was kidnapped and molested by Pulsar Suni and his gang in a moving auto near Athani in Angamaly on February 17.
