Rakhi Sawant

The government has said that Bigg Boss 4 and Rakhi Sawant's Rakhi Ka Insaaf are not fit for universal viewing and hence cannot be aired before 11pm.

Bigg Boss will now be aired at 11pm on Colors channel.

The shows will have to carry a band saying it is not suitable for children. No news channels can show excerpts of the show.

Good move by the Government.

Its hightime that Authorities should intervene any all TV shows and programs and moderate wherever its applicable.
There are a lot of programs and 100s of Tv channels these days and airing many programs which is not suitable for family viewing, that too they showing at prime times.
Channels should be more ethical and morally responsible to the community, than just looking for their TRP and income.
I was watching a tv channel this moring, a live dial-in/song program and some schools kids were calling in the program for dedicating some songs; and the song they aired for them, was some vulgar song and not suitable for kids/families.. Sad

Anywyas, thanks for the udpate Nair.
Today is the tomorrow you worried about yesterday.. for tomorrow never comes.. live today!!!

Mumbai: The channel on which Bigg Boss airs has taken the government to court and has won a reprieve - the show will not have to move to 11 pm for now.

Viacom 18, which owns Colors, challenged the government's decision, announced yesterday, to restrict the airing of "adult shows" like Bigg boss and Raakhi Ka Insaaf (which airs on Imagine) between the hours of 11 pm and 5 am. The Ministry of Information and Broadcasting said it had received many complaints from viewers about abusive and vulgar language. (Forum: Is Govt right to move 'adult' shows to later time?)

News channels have been told they cannot show any excerpts from these shows. (Read: Govt order on Bigg Boss)

Last night, Colors did not delay the airing of Bigg Boss which has US celebrity Pamela Anderson participating on the show for three days.

Colors moved the Bombay High Court this morning. It said, "No date has been mentioned as to when the show was against good taste and decency." The channel also said that its content cannot be described as obscene.

"The show has been on for one and a half months, what is the urgency suddenly?" asked Colors in court.

The channel accepted that while the government has the power to force a schedule change, "in this case our advertisement commitment and content has to change."

Govt plays Big Boss: No ‘adult’ shows on TV before 11 pm


With the I&B ministry pushing back from telecast of reality shows like Bigg Boss-4 on Colors and Rakhi Ka Insaaf on Imagine from prime time band to post 11pm, the broadcasters stand to take 30% dip in revenues generated from advertising.

Under pressure from the civil society for taking action against broadcasters airing adult and abusive content, the information and broadcasting (I&B) ministry cracked the whip on Wednesday. The I&B ministry has ordered shows like Bigg Boss-4 (Colors) and Rakhi Ka Insaaf (Imagine) to air only after 11pm.

Also, the notice from the I&B ministry states that such shows can not have any repeat telecast between 5am and 11pm. Moreover, the clippings of these reality shows can not be aired on news channels between 5am and 11pm. The channels like Colors and Imagine on their part will have to ensure that no clippings of the programme are provided to any other news or non-news channels for telecast at anytime during the restricted time bands.

This is why govt and audience raised the question as this getting more and more either its vulgarity or its abuse and false language.

So definitely this should be shifted to 11pm or after show

Bigg Boss to continue its telecast at 9pm
November 18, 2010 16:59 IST

The Colors channel challenged the government's decision to restrict the airing of adult shows like Bigg Boss between 11 pm and 5 am.

The government on Wednesday directed Colors and Imagine TV (for their show Rakhi Ka Insaaf) to change the broadcast timings of their shows to a late night slot following complaints of vulgarity.

Now, the latest update is that Colors can telecast Bigg Boss at its usual hour as the High Court has put a stay order.

The High Court will also issue a notice to the Ministry scheduling the next hearing for November 22. So the show can be aired during the prime time till then.

A channel spokesperson confirmed, "We have got a stay order from the Bombay High Court which means the show will be aired at 9 pm."

Bigg Boss gets stay to show at 9 pm

Pamela Anderson, the 43-year old buxom babe best known for her role in Baywatch series, will continue to appear at 9 pm as Bigg Boss gets a reprieve from the Bombay High Court to continue telecasting in its old time slot till Monday.

The court has stayed a government order directing Hindi general entertainment Colors to change the broadcast timings of Bigg Boss.

“Bigg Boss will continue to be telecast in the prime time slot of 9 pm. The next hearing is on Monday,” says a company spokesperson.

The government had on Wednesday directed Colors and Imagine TV
to shift the telecast timings of Bigg Boss and Rakhi Ka Insaaf to adult hours between 11 pm and 5 am.

Viacom 18, which owns and operates Colors, moved the Bombay High Court challenging the government's directive.

Colors continued to air Big Boss at 9 pm yesterday as Anderson, who will be participating on the show for four days, made her maiden appearance.

Colors contended in the court that no date has been mentioned as to when the show was against good taste and decency. The show has been on for one and a half months and the content can’t be classified as obscene, Colors said.

Adult Hour On TV? Or Remote Controlled?

Last night the topic of conversation in most of the Indian households and discussion on news channels was the crackdown of Ministry of Information and broadcasting on Big Boss and Rakhi Ka Insaaf. The government finally decided to sanitize the TV by asking Colors and Imagine TV to air Big Boss 4 and Rakhi Ka Insaaf after 11 PM and that too with a warning for children.

This strict action from the government against the explicit content on TV has created the buzz in the industry whether Indian TV requires an adult hour or not. The TV channels aired their flagships show at their respected time slots as they didn’t receive any notice from the Ministry.

The decision garnered mixed reaction from the industry people. Mohit Joshi – Executive Director North MPG said, “i think this is an important step in favor of the viewers. In a race for tvrs, channels have somewhere marginalized the ethics of family programming. It will create a much required self regulation in the viewership space.”

Anita Nayyar, CEO Havas Media India and South Asia had totally different views on the issue. Speaking to Bestmediainfo.com, she said.”When roadies and splitsvila and emotional attyacharb can run at normal time why stop BB n rakhi? People who want to watch will do so any which way.”

Sudha Natrajan, COO & President, Lintas Media Group said that self regulation is the best mechanism.

“The I&B ministry has been talking about content regulation, and putting together a committee to do that, for a while. The industry’s stand has been that self regulation is the best way. We have to be conscious of viewership at homes, which in India are primarily single TV homes, which during prime time includes the whole household. The current content that has been appearing has been stretching the envelope so to speak. Airing specific content at specific time, keeping in mind the demographics of the viewership pattern, is a responsible act,” said Sudha Natrajan.

KV Sridhar, National Creative Director, Leo Burnett India while sharing his views said, “I don’t watch Big Boss but my family does and I don’t think anything wrong happened on that show as the feedback from my family is not bad. The shows like Big Boss 4 are totally fine for our audience as the viewers know what’s good for them. I believe it’s the explicit content of Rakhi ka Sawant which irked the Government and Big Boss also faced the consequences as it was also in news.”

“You know how bizarre it is when a person like Rakhi decides family disputes on TV.” added Pops.

A marketing head of a leading Hindi news Channel said, “It is unfortunate that government has to intervene here. The behavior of GECs has been very irresponsible.”

The ministry’s action will be significant in deciding the future course of Indian TV as the ministry has shown that it has zero tolerance against the explicit content. And this also gives fuel to the question whether we need an adult hour on TV or not?
