Colors hearing deferred to Dec 3; ‘Bigg Boss’ to continue to air at 9 pm, for now

Colors’ show ‘Bigg Boss’ has got some relief as the Bombay High Court has postponed to December 3, 2010 the hearing in the case of Ministry of Information & Broadcasting’s (MIB) order to air the reality show between 11 pm and 5 am. ‘Bigg Boss’ will continue to air in its usual time of 9 pm till further proceedings take place.

It may be recalled that in its order dated November 16, 2010 when the MIB issued a notice to Colors and Imagine, classifying the content on ‘Bigg Boss’ and ‘Rakhi Ka Insaaf’, respectively, as ‘unsuitable for unrestricted public exhibition’ and ordered these channels to revise the time slot to between 11 pm and 5 am. The Ministry had also called for modification in the content in accordance with the Programme Code with effect from November 17, 2010.

The following day, Colors filed an appeal in the Bombay High Court and was awarded a stay order, which allowed it to continue the telecast of ‘Bigg Boss’ in the 9 pm slot. The hearing, which was scheduled for November 22, 2010, has now been postponed to December 3, 2010.

While ‘Bigg Boss’ continues to air during prime time at the 9 pm slot, Imagine’s show ‘Rakhi ka Insaaf’, which fell under the same scrutiny of the Ministry, has started airing in its revised time slot of 11 pm since the notice was issued.
