Reality shows, super sensationalized AV's on participants, dramatic overkills and walkouts all go hand in hand. It gets very hard to say when an incident is scripted and when not! The shoot for this week's episode saw a shocking incident on the sets of SVOI which made one of the judges - Pritam Chakraborty, stage a walk out in protest. Telly Buzz decided to catch up with Pritam to get to know all about the incident..
When we inquired as to what exactly had happened, Pritam explained, "What happened was very bad. Suddenly this girl from the audience comes down and kisses Emraan Hashmi. The worst part was that, Emraan was my guest. He had come for the promotion of my album. Even he was bit shaken with the incident and that's very natural too."
But how could the girl breach the security, reach Emraan and indulge in such a bold act is the biggest question Pritam wants to ask the Production house. And on asking if the whole fiasco was scripted he firmly states, "I don't want to get into that, but if this whole act was scripted, then it was a far worse situation and totally disgusting. I cannot fathom why such dramas would be required to promote a talent hunt show." He was quite vocal about his displeasure on the whole fiasco. "This is a show for kids and such things should not have been allowed to happen. When Mika Singh goes and kisses Raakhi, I am least bothered. But when there are kids around, some basic aesthetics and decorum needs to be maintained," is what the Music Director and Judge of the show had to convey to all.
He justified his walkout saying, "Yes I made a walk out because I was very annoyed. That girl after all this goes and sits down as if nothing had happened. I told the show producers to throw her out and only after that, I joined again". But with all this, he is also quite miffed with the production house for promoting this incident. "The whole incident is finally a disgrace to the show. Why advertise such a thing? It's more disgusting this way," says an annoyed Pritam.
Yes, indeed it is sad that a kid's show had to witness such a shocking incident. Whether all this was staged or was an impulsive act by a crazy fan, only the show producer and his crew can tell.
