Actor Kamal Hassan was drawn into yet another controversy due to his remarks on the Hindu epic Mahabharat. Recently in his interview to a news channel, Kamal Hassan when posed with the question of the increasing crime against women quoted Mahabharat as a book where a woman is objectified and the country till date sanctifies the book.

Hindu People’s Party filed a complaint against him in Chennai Police Commissioner’s office. Another complaint has been lodged by a person named Aadhinaadhasundharam in Valliyur Criminal court to take necessary action on the actor.
