It looks like a not-so-upbeat scenario for reality show Bigg Boss. After series of complaints against the show for propagating vulgarity, sources close to the Ministry Of Information & Broadcasting say that the show is being carefully scrutinised.
“Our investigation has found the show to cross the line (of decency). They are now seriously exploring the possibility of banning the show, as it encourages negative competition among the contestants,” says the source from the government. Another source close to the I&B Ministry says, “Bigg Boss is toxic and addictive. The male-female contestants clearly play against each other in a sexually charged atmosphere. This is not an ordinary reality-show about a bunch of semi-celebrities being locked up together. It is an invitation to get seriously close in ways that are really not acceptable to our culture.”
