STOP PRESS: ‘I&B needs a reality check’

“The Ministry of Information & Broadcasting (I&B) needs to either grow up or do a ‘reality check’. We are living in the 21st century; the time of true freedom; the time of the Internet; the time of Twitter and Facebook. Today’s kids and teens watch porn all over the net; see heroines in bikinis in movies; watch rape scenes or hear foul language in films like Omkara; get to hear many obnoxious insinuations in various advertisements on TV; hear almost detestable language in serials and daily soaps; witness the most stinging words from news readers and hosts of various news channels everyday. Sections of the media have even gone to the extent of frequently showing mutilated bodies from accidents and bomb blasts. If all this is cleared and passed, either in the name of news or entertainment on prime time, then why have double standards for ‘Bigg Boss’ or ‘Rakhi Ka Insaaf’? Just because the shows have the word ‘reality’ prefixed on them? That’s completely unfair.”

-Dale Bhagwagar, Bollywood publicist
