‘Bigg Boss’ Still In Prime Time Slots
‘Bigg Boss’ is trapped in controversy from the very first day, previously because of the Pakistani participants and now because of timings of the show. The Bombay High Court has though extended the stay on the prime time slots telecast of the program. The protestors want the show to be telecast on different timings.
The court had previously come up with notice that ‘Bigg Boss’ would be telecast after the prime time hours, but Viacom 18 Media Pvt Ltd challenged it in court, asking it to reschedule as per the previous slab.
An official from Viacom says, “No particular dates have been mentioned as to when the show was against good taste and decency. The show has been on for one and a half months, what is the urgency suddenly?"
The NGO’s demanded to re-schedule programs like ‘Bigg Boss’ and ‘Rakhi Ka Insaaf’, as they do not comply with good taste and decency. The court consisting of judges D K Deshmukh and N D Deshpande will give the final decision on December 3.
