Chennai: Just weeks after Tamil Bigg Boss contestant Saravanan courted controversy by confessing to molesting women on public transport, he has now been eliminated from the house.

The elimination came at the end of Monday’s (August 5) episode as Saravanan was called to the ‘confession room’ in the house by Bigg Boss.

“Since we had to pay attention to Meera-Cheran issue last week, it was not possible to consider to consider the comment you made on national television at that point in time,” Bigg Boss voice stated and added that the team would not accept any wrong approach when it comes to misbehaviour with women.

“Crores of families in Tamil Nadu and outside are watching this programme. The message we want to send across is that though the incidents happened in the past, we strictly condemn it. Hence it has been decided that you shall not continue in this show. Saravanan, you are evicted from the Bigg Boss house,” the voice added.

Just a few weeks ago, Saravanan had admitted to molesting and groping women on buses in an episode of Bigg Boss Tamil, while the show’s host and actor Kamal Hassan was discussing an issue between director Cheran and Meera Mithun.

Kamal was explaining various difficulties faced by women while traveling on buses as they get molested by men. Saravanan interrupted saying he has done it. "It was long back, when I was in college," Saravanan justified while Kamal laughed over the matter and the audience cheered.

In the following week, Kamal and the Bigg Boss production team were under fire for how the entire issue was handled.
