MIB issues showcause notice to Colors for ‘Bigg Boss – 3’

The Ministry of Information & Broadcasting (MIB) on October 26, 2009 issued a showcause notice to Hindi GEC Colors, taking exception to the content being telecast in reality show ‘Bigg Boss Season 3’. MIB has given Colors five days to reply to the notice.

In its notice, the Ministry said that the show had “telecast and re-telecast certain parts, which offended good taste and decency and were not suitable for unrestricted public exhibition”.

It asked the channel not to carry any content that constituted a violation of the programme code as enshrined in the Cable TV Networks (Regulation) Act 1995.

The notice further said that the “language used by some participants is vulgar and abusive and the show contains visuals, which appear to be obscene and violative of Programme Code”.

It may be recalled that recently Kamal Khan, one of the Bigg Boss house inmates, had been evicted for showing unnecessary aggression towards other house inmates as well as his language.
