Chotte Ustad Team
The kids music reality show ‘Chhote Usatd’ on Star Plus invited participation from India and Pakistan both, but now Raj Thackeray opposes the mixed participation. His party Navnirman Sena has threatened the channel to respect their concern; else they will explain to them in a different language.
The Raj Thackeray party has sent a letter to the channel to re-think over the issue else they have other ways of making people understand.
The issue came up when the party came to know about the participation of ten Pakistani kids and the presence of a Pakistani mentor in the show. They do not have issues with such kind of programs, but also add that Star Plus is doing such things only to increase the TRP’s.
The channel says that they want to promote peace through such shows and music is the best medium to do such things.
The party adds that the channel has forgotten incidents like 26/11 attacks and the people behind the attacks are still roaming free. Raj Thackeray adds that India and Pakistan do not share good diplomatic relations and such shows shouldn’t be encouraged.
