The last 15 minutes of Sunday's Bigg Boss Tamil show were probably one of the best moments in the second season of the show as Kamal Haasan became the voice of the public. The host not only came to Ponnambalam's rescue, but he sent a message to the contestants that they all look "fake."
Kamal Haasan started the last segment of the weekend show by saying that whistling when someone is being punished is unacceptable. Ramya intervened and told the host that she could not forget Ponnambalam's offensive language against Aishwarya.
The Bigg Boss Tamil host reminded her that Ponnambalam had already apologised for the two-week old episode, but Ramya was not convinced for which the host reacted, "We have all seen him asking apology,"
It seemed like Ramya and many other inmates were clueless about Ponnambalam's apology and neither Aishwarya nor Yashika had bothered to inform the contestants about it.
Kamal Haasan compared Ananth's behaviour like a grandfather protecting their grandchildren, while Ponnambalam acting like a father when they are going out of track. He told the inmates that the eliminated contestant would not have taken Ponnambalam's name had he known about the apology.
Kamal Haasan claimed that Ponnambalam was being punished for the mistake for which he had already apologised. He did not entertain to hear the further views about the incident indicating that the issue is over.
The host reminded all the inmates that they all look "fake" as they are trying to control their emotions in order to look good in front of the camera. "The show has entered the third week and none of them have impressed the viewers yet," he said.
The manner in which Ponnambalam was defended, while also justifying Ananth's decision to suggest name has been highly praised.

Ponnabalam sir don't worry many of us support you! you said what the majority of the audience were thinking
Why Ananth sent Ponnambalam to jail?
Ananth sent Ponnambalam to jail in the Bigg Boss house, using his special power before he left the show. He had his objections over the latter's views about his advice to the inmates to behave well as the show is being watched by all age groups and it might affect their own lives.
The musician apparently misunderstood Ponnambalam's comments and it seemed like Ananth took the actor's name for using foul language during a conversation with Aishwarya and Yashika without knowing about the apology.
