Bigg Boss 3 gets I&B min notice for vulgarity

Bigg Boss, the reality show hosted by Amitabh Bachchan, has landed in trouble yet again.

The Information & Broadcasting Ministry on Monday asked Colors entertainment channel to explain why it did not censor a scene where two participants — Aditi Gowitrikar and Tanaz Irani — pulled down the shorts of Raju Srivastava, another participant, and also provided the footage to news channels.

The I&B ministry notice states that the content is obscene and it has offended the sensibilities of many viewers who watch the prime time show with their families. It also added that obsene visuals were provided to the news channels by the producer for wider publicity. This has violated Section 5 of the Network Act which states that no programme which offends good taste and decency or contains anything obscene can be transmitted/re-transmitted on any cable service.

The ministry has asked the channel to reply by Friday or else face action, which includes suspension of the transmission or a ban for a certain period.

After the ministry’s intervention, news channels stopped showing the clip, which was repeatedly played on Sunday.

The ministry has the power to suspend transmission or ban a channel found violating the programme code, which lists dos and don’ts for the television industry. Colors has already been issued three notices and two advisories for violation of the code since it got approval on June 12, 2008.
