I don’t watch Bigg Boss. I would rather use the time to punish myself in other ways. Like whipping myself with a thorn whip. But when I heard about Rakhi Sawant’s latest antics on the show I was horrified. The drama queen is actually seen pulling the strings of her Bigg Boss 14 housemate Abhinav Shukla’s shorts.
This cannot be seen as a playful gesture. It’s not two boys in a swimming pool locker room. It’s a grownup woman tugging at a man’s shorts on camera with millions watching. Ms Sawant obviously wants something, and she’s most welcome to it. And it’s not just publicity.
But what happened to her newly-married husband? Wasn’t she supposed to introduce him to the public on Bigg Boss? Leave aside that. Why is a recently married woman pulling at a married man’s shorts in full view of his wife? Is this decent behaviour? We don’t need an answer to that. But we do need an answer as to why Bigg Boss, the channel Colors and Endemol who produce this silly sleazy show, allow such a lewd attempt at sexual harassment?
Think of what hell would have been raised if the roles were reversed and it was a woman who was subjected to this obnoxious behaviour?
Vindoo Dara Singh, former Bigg Boss winner, laughs off Rakhi Sawant’s behaviour as an attention-seeking gimmick. “In real life, she’s very sorted. Once she’s on camera she will do anything for attention. No matter what it takes she will get publicity. And she’s all over Bigg Boss. It proves her presence works for the show. People love her antics. My sister is crazy about Rakhi. And Rakhi is happy to be the entertainer. She will do anything to entertain and to boost TRPs.”
According to sources Endemol, the producers of Bigg Boss have adopted a hands-off attitude to this season’s going on.
“The channel Colors is handling all the tamasha this time. Even Rakhi pulling strings on the show is all pre-planned" the source informs.
