Arshad Warsi had hosted the first ever season of Bigg Boss and the actor is seriously disappointed with the way the show has progressed over the years.
The show is in its eleventh season and it has been a part of numerous controversies that has disgraced its image.
Arshad Warsi is currently promoting ‘Golmaal Again’ releasing this Diwali and it may surprise you a bit that he refused to promote the film on ‘Bigg Boss’.
Well, his reasons are quite valid. He spoke to a news agency to justify his absence,
People on the show, I hear, are tacky. I haven’t seen this season, but I’ve heard about it. The channel is attempting to boost the ratings by showcasing the things that sell. And thus, morality is taking a backseat.
He said that the show is serving regressive content,
People enjoy watching crass, and the channel is merely serving it. The content showcased on Indian television is regressive. The day people change their taste, the narrative of the shows will also change. If the world wants to see sensible people in the house, the channel will oblige. The audience wants to see dramatic people, those who fight, hit and abuse.
Back in 2006, he believes that the concept was authentic and now, only nutcases are invited,
The concept back then was to understand the psyche of people and notice the developments that occur when they are made to reside in a house, isolated from the world. No one wanted to cause any trouble. There was no nudity or violence demanded in the clause. When you meet new individuals, you can be cordial for a week. Then, you discover their traits. When good behaviour wears out, the dynamics change. It takes time for people to reach that stage. But, now the channel wants immediate TRP success, so they are consciously sending nutcases into the house.
