Big Boss Most Touching Scenes Ever
MUMBAI: Uber popular reality TV show ‘Bigg Boss’, hosted by the ‘Dabangg’ Salman Khan, has landed in a hot soup.
The channel, which went on air on 15 September, has been issued a show cause notice by the Information and Broadcasting (I&B) Ministry. The notice was issued because the ministry felt that some of the content on the show was unsuitable for “unrestricted public exhibition.”
Reportedly, complaints were received by the ministry, against the widespread TV show, where celebrities are locked up in a house for several months at end. After receiving such complaints, the ministry studied two episodes to examine the alleged objectionable content.
A ministry official revealed: “There had been concern about the language used by some contestants in a conversation that was aired on the reality show Bigg Boss 7. In one of the episodes of the show, a contestant is shown sitting on an electric chair and being given electric shocks.”
‘Bigg Boss’ is a show created by Endemol, and adapted from the original international format called ‘Big Brother’. This season, the theme is ‘Heaven and Hell’.
“It was felt that the content exhibited was not suitable for unrestricted public exhibition and prima facie it is violative of the programming code under the Cable TV Act so the ministry has issued a show cause notice and asked the channel to explain,” the source added.
