Salman Khan has been controversy’s favourite child for decades and not just his personal life, his professional ventures too becomes a part of the headlines for decades now. The latest in this is his TV show Bigg Boss that has landed in trouble for being accused of promoting 'vulgarity' , by outfits and politicians. The members of one of them, the Rajput Karni Sena reportedly landed at the Dabangg star’s apartment. The workers were detained by the police and the security has been beefed up at the actor’s residence.
22 workers of the Rajput Karni Sena were detained after they protested outside Galaxy Apartments in Bandra, Mumbai on Friday. Since then, the security has been increased at the venue, and a team of over 30 personnel has been deployed for the same. Deputy commissioner of police (DCP) Zone IX, Paramjit Singh Dahiya confirmed the news, as per reports.
This is not the first time that the Karni Sena protests have led to police intervention. Even during the release of Padmaavat, Deepika Padukone had got extra protection and also Kangana Ranaut’s security was increased when Manikarnika was up for release because of the oppostion of the fringe outfit.
As far as Bigg Boss is concerned, there have been opposition from multiple sides over the show. The Karni Sena protested against Indian culture being ‘ruined.’ Another outfit Akhil Bharatiya Akhara Parishad too expressed the same concern. The Brahmin Mahasabha also opposed it. The President of the Uttar Pradesh Nav Nirman Sena, claimed that he won’t eat food till the show goes off air.
The Confederation of All India Traders has written to Information and Broadcasting Minister Prakash Javadekar accusing the show of ‘tarnishing’ the country’s traditional and cultural values. BJP MLA from Ghaziabad, Nand Kishor Gurjar wrote to Minister Javadekar demanding the show be banned for promoting ‘vulgarity’.
One of the reasons for the outrage is a new concept ‘Bed Friend Forever’ wherein a male and female contestant have been seen sharing a bed. Even the communities that the contestants belong came into the picture in the allegations made in this and that the show had resulted in ‘Love Jihad’. A task where the contestants share objects through their mouths too attracted attention.
