Kamal Haasan says he will apologize

At a press conference, the actor spoke about the Malayalam actress' abduction case, the investigation of which has lead to the arrest of famous actor Dileep.

In his second tweet, the actor then hinted about one woman, whom he didn't name, for perhaps launching campaign against him. Two days ago fundamentalists were screaming for his arrest for allegedly denigrating Hindu culture on Bigg Boss. After the actor's statement National Commission for Women chairperson Lalitha Kumaramangalam has sent a notice to Kamal demanding an apology for publicly naming the victim.

"For me, not just the safety of actress but every single person is important. U r penalizing the lawyer and missing criminals (sic)".

The HMK protestors while protesting near Hassan's residence on Friday demanded "A" (Adult) certification like films for television programmes such as Tamil version of Bigg Boss to protect the interests of the general public, children and students. The name of that popular actress is "feelings"(the meaning of her name as I can't violate section 228A) and this fact is not hidden from anybody. Social media users are also concerned about the unparliamentary language used in the show.

As Wimbledon glory beckons, Federer muses on life after tennis
It's such a high-stress situation at any time, but in the opening set of a Wimbledon semi-final the stakes can't be any greater. Cilic is the second Croat to reach the Wimbledon final, following Goran Ivanisevic's victory in 2001.

"If he has made a mistake it won't make him small to say that "I am sorry". Name her after my mother or my daughter.

When asked to not name her, Haasan said, "It doesn't matter if I have used the name".

Now Kamal has reacted to the notice in a series of tweets.

Hindu Makkal Katchi, a fringe group, had on Thursday filed a complaint against the actor regarding Bigg Boss Tamil and how it was destroying the Tamil Hindu culture.
