COLORS' reality show Bigg Boss which saw its first bout of violence coming from Kamal Rashid Khan last week has stooped to a new low this week, with the obscene semi-nude footage of Raju Srivastav that was aired across all channels over the weekend.
The Information and Broadcasting ministry has sent a show cause notice to the producers of the show after housemates Aditi Gowitrikar and Tanaaz Irani pulled down the shorts of co-contestant Raju Srivastav during the pool side party organized over the weekend in the Bigg Boss house. However, the scene in question was not aired in the Sunday's episode which showed the contestants enjoying the pool side party.
The ministry has demanded an explanation from the producers at the most by this Friday, or else they face action which includes suspension of transmission or ban for a certain period. It has also mentioned in its notice that this obscene content has offended the sensibilities of viewers, and that the production house in order to get more publicity even sent the semi-nude visuals to channels.
In their defense, COLORS officials have said, "We are yet to receive any notice. We have taken all measures to ensure our program Bigg Boss is in compliance with the program code and we very clearly beep out any abusive content used the contestants in the show".
