Kamal Haasan, who has been one of the most vocal proponents of Jallikattu, is in trouble for his remarks on the Mahabharata.

Earlier this month, the ace actor commented on Draupadi and the Mahabharata during an interview with a Tamil channel.

“In Mahabharata, Panchali (Draupadi) was used as a pawn while the men gambled. She was used as a collateral and India is a country that respects and honors a book that revolves around men using a woman to gamble away as if she was a mere object.”

The comment did not go down well with a section of Hindus.

Today, Pranavananda Swami from Basaveshwara Mutt in Bengaluru filed a PIL against the actor.



 

A week ago, the Hindu Makkal Katchi (HMK) had filed a PIL against the multiple National Award winner in Tirunelveli District Court.

HMK members told the press that Haasan has been “repeatedly taking an anti-Hindu” stand. Haasan was criticized for being “anti anything that is good for Tamil Nadu and India”.

The group told the media that Haasan has “no guts to speak against the Quran and the Bible”.

This is not the first time the ace actor has landed on the wrong side of religious groups. In 2013 Muslim groups objected to his film ‘Vishwaroopam’ for allegedly portraying Muslims in poor light. Haasan was forced by the Muslim groups to mute seven scenes in the film.
