In 2017, Haasan made his television debut with the first season of Bigg Boss.

After some fringe groups protested against the show, Haasan said in a media interaction that Bigg Boss is “as necessary as Cricket in India”.
“I’m not answerable to the people who filed the complaint. I’m not worried about the case. I have immense faith in law and in our government. I don’t think Bigg Boss is tarnishing Tamil culture. I have done kissing scenes in the past. Perhaps, they are seeking my arrest late,” he had said.
