Bengaluru : The Kannada version of the reality show Bigg Boss 2 which is being aired on Suvarna has always been in the thick of controversies for many reasons. While the show is progressing towards the final stage the current season of show has attracted criticism from viewers for too much of violence and vulgarity with contestants going overboard with extremely filthy languages that makes the show not being watchable by the family audience.
Not only the participants engage in verbal spats, but at times we see them resorting to violence. Audiences know it well that the makers of the show have designed Bigg Boss in such a way to showcase various emotions of their stars onscreen.
The reality show brings to light how our idols behave in their real life. But the kind of abusive language and violence shown on Bigg Boss is unpalatable for audiences. Even recently when RJ Rohith was eliminated from the show he accused several participants of behaving violently in the show.
Earlier, after elimination the film actor Adi Lokesh also slammed filmmaker Guruprasad accusing him of using a lot of foul language and very bad behaviour inside the Bigg Boss house.” After his entry in the show I was praying that I should be eliminated and I am happy that voters understood my pains and helped me a way out of the house,” Adi added.
Industry veterans commented that the current dose of vulgarity and violence in Bigg Boss Kannada is a never before scenario in Kannada Television programming history and it is not an apt content for the regional market like Karnataka.
Apparently, the performance of the programs also is matching with the talk of the industry as the show haven’t witnessed any kind of improvement in ratings and in fact got stagnated at one point and never been a market topper despite being launched in a prime GEC of Karnataka market.
However, it may be noted that the same show was delivering a chart topping ratings in its 1st season, even though it was launched on a comparatively inferior channel ETV Kannada.
