The Confederation of All India Traders (CAIT) requested the Information and Broadcasting Minister, Prakash Javadekar to shut down Salman Khan’s Bigg Boss 13 because the content is ‘too vulgar’ for prime time.
Like every other year, Salman Khan’s popular reality TV show Bigg Boss 13 has been a constant ‘House of Controversy’. After a couple of episodes, Bigg Boss boils down to catfights, name-calling, abusive behavior and mental torture amongst the contestants. Sometimes the contestants stoop ‘too low’ to pull each other down to mud which leads to national controversies.
This time around the Information and Broadcasting Minister of India, Prakash Javadekar has been requested to take down the show because of its ‘inappropriate content’. Yes, the Confederation of All Indian Traders (CAIT) has reported the Bigg Boss 13’s content to be ‘too vulgar and obscene’ for the family audience.
The members of the association aren’t too happy about the way the show is censored as it tarnishes the traditional and cultural values of the country. As per them, the makers of the show are ‘lusting over TRPs’ only. They are strictly against the ‘Bed Friend Forever’ concept because it does not match with the values of Indian culture.
The CAIT request seems genuine since Bigg Boss 13 is aired during the Television prime time. The show can have a harmful impact on children. The show commenced on 29 September 2019 with Salman Khan hosting the ‘Weekend Ka War’ episodes.
Unlike the last couple of season, this time around the makers have only included celebrities in the house and no commoners. The BB House has also been built in Mumbai, not Lonavala.
Let us see what the members of the Information and Broadcasting Ministry of India decide. Will BB13 will have to end midway or the makers will negotiate a better deal with the authorities? What are your thoughts?
