"The task that made fun of mentally challenged people was not in a good taste. And I'm actually angry about it. We all have social responsibilities. I request them (Bigg Boss team) not to repeat such activities on the show hereafter," Kamal said. The actor also said that if such an act is repeated again he wouldn't consider coming back to host the show. Taking an example from his career, the actor said that he doesn't show a mentally challenged person in his films for comic relief and even if he does, that character is the lead.
