Rakhi Sawant tore Rahul Mahajan's dhoti on TV in the reality show, Bigg Boss 14. The housemates took major offence over the act. But let us admit, this won't be the first time when the makers of the show allowed the contestants to go a bit too far. There needs to be some onus on the showrunners to produce and show better content on national TV. Rakhi's same act in the real-life might have fetched legal case against her. But in the house, she might walk away scot-free. This won' be a first either.

When Aditi Govatrikar Pulled Down Raju Shrivastava's Pants
Back then, the reality show was being hosted by Amitabh Bachchan, who, by any degree, wouldn't have appreciated the content. In one of the episodes, during a pool party, ex Mrs India Aditi Govitrikar pulled down comedian Raju Shrivastava's shorts, exposing him to the camera. The makers even showed the scene on Indian TV, with Raju's rear blurred. But, it was enough to draw notice from broadcasting ministry, however, nothing happened beyond that.
In real life, this could have been charged as public indecency.
When Swami Om Threw Urine On Bani J
Swami Om is by far one of the worst contestants on Bigg Boss ever. The guru was often exposed as a fraud on the show as well as in the real world. You'd think that a man claiming to be the Godman would have more decency and ethics. In an episode, during a task, an irritable Swami threw his urine, after collecting it in a glass, on contestants Bani J and Rohan Mehra, both of whom retaliated by attacking him.
Akash Dadlani Forcibly Kissed Shilpa Shinde
In one of the episodes of Bigg Boss 11, controversial contestant Akash Dadlani forcibly kissed Shilpa Shinde on her cheek. She was shocked. Twitterati was left fuming after watching the moment on TV. "She used to spank me and hug me. So, I also hugged her back and kissed her a few times. But then it got a little extra and after that, she discussed it with Luv (Tyagi) which she should not have done. She could have told me if she was feeling awkward. I then apologised to her. In fact, I also apologised when I was leaving the house. She's 16 years elder to me and I'm 24, she's 40 so I only look at her as a big sister or mother figure," Akash tried to explain his behaviour after his eviction.
