Bindass' Big Switch earns ire of Shiv Sena
Advertisement
#1
MUMBAI: UTV’s youth entertainment channel Bindass has faced the heat from Charmadyog Kamgar Sena, a wing of Shiv Sena, for airing a “boot polish” task in its reality show Big Switch.

The channel, in 14 November’s episode, aired rich contestants taking on the task of boot polish, which as per the Charmadyog Kamgar Sena “did not project the profession in a good light” and has resulted in “hurting the sentiments of the people who polish shoes for a living”.

Thus the wing today conducted a protest rally and met the management of Bindass at UTV office.

After the meeting, the channel has agreed to carry a ticker from the next telecast emphasising that this is just an activity participants were asked to do on a reality show and is in no way depictive of the actual work or the people who do it.

Clarifying on the issue, Bindass channel head Heather Gupta said, “We at Bindass are providing people with entertainment. The task in the show is intended to showcase the inhabitants of poorer areas of Mumbai in a very positive light. However if it has still hurted the sentiments of any particular community, then we would like to clarify people at large that we are a very responsible channel and our intensions are never to hurt sentiments or feelings of any person or community in any manner.”
