Default Bigg Boss creating negative buzz for Colors

Censor Board objected to six scenes

Bigg Boss is a show that's creating a buzz alright, often for not so right reasons though on Colors channel. A recent FIR lodged by the Mumbai Youth Congress Committee has alleged that reality show Bigg Boss "bred vulgarity, indecency and indecent representation of women."

An FIR was also registered against three of the show's participants - Rahul Mahajan, Payal Rohatgi and Sambhavna Seth, who have been accused of behaving in an obscene manner, under Sections 294/34 of the IPC. However, the Bombay High Court has cleared the show of any obscenity charge.

It's an open world today with reality interesting everybody. That's the reason why reality shows on TV are doing well. So, while a comment filled with expletives may make many squirm, but it surely helps the TRPs of a show and make it extremely popular.

Says Sandiip Sickand, former creative director, Sony, who was the man behind the successful run of the first season of the reality show, Bigg Boss, "This show has a great format. We must also remember that the show is run by the inmates of the house. So, if there is anything objectionable, then it just reflects on the inmates of the house. It should not be construed that there is something wrong with the show."

Agrees Sambhavna Seth, a former house mate. Ask her if she felt that there was anything obscene on the show, and the voted out inmate says, "There are a lot of things that happen on a show in the heat of the moment. So, a reality show does not become obscene deliberately. I think it is up to the parents to ensure whether a show is fit for the viewing of kids."

While contestants and show producers may feel that a show per se is not responsible, there are others who feel that there are many programmes on TV, based on crime and occult, which are not exactly meant for family viewing.

Explains actor Ronit Roy, "In my view, some cartoon films are the most violent ones. It's not right to blame TV shows all the time. I have kids, and I have always believed that it is for the parents to lead by example. If we set the right example, then it's impossible for kids to watch shows not meant for them."

Given this scenario, are there any set of rules that constitute a family show? Says T N Vasanti, director, Centre for Media Studies, "There are a lot of guidelines, which have been framed by the Information and Broadcasting Ministry, to which the media has not responded as yet. The ball is in their court."

"If these guidelines are adhered to, I guess many problems will be solved. That said, I feel the greater responsibility lies with parents. They have to decide what kids should watch and which show may contain stuff that isn't suitable for them." Vasanti says.
