Actor Saravanan, who bragged about having sexually harassed women on buses during an episode of Bigg Boss Tamil last week.
Saravanan was eliminated from the show allegedly for his controversial comments.
Trade analysts Ramesh Bala and Kaushik LM tweeted Monday evening that the actor was ousted from the show as consequence of his remarks, which were originally criticised by the Internet, including celebrities such as Chinmayi Sripada but more on that later.
Ramesh Bala tweeted, “Saravanan eliminated from Bigg Boss Tamil season 3 for saying he has inappropriately behaved with women in bus travel during his youth.”
Last week, during a weekend special episode with host Kamal Hassan, Saravanan boasted about taking buses in college with the sole purpose of groping female passengers.
When Kamal Hassan elaborated saying people don’t get into crowded buses with the purpose of groping women, Saravanan raised claimed he did exactly that as a college student.
Saravanan was ostracised on social media for his distasteful and flippant remarks.
Singer Chinmayi Sirpada, who named leading poet-lyricist Vairamuthu in her #MeToo account last year, tweeted about the Incident.
