Siddharth, of Rang De Basanti fame, says youth-based reality shows Roadies and Dadagiri are offensive. He feels if these shows are not banned, ragging in Indian colleges will never end.
Siddharth, a big name in southern cinema, expressed concern through his post on Twitter. “Following conversations with friends I checked out Roadies on MTV & Dadagiri on Bindaas.
If these two offensive shows are not banned immediately, ragging in Indian colleges will never end.
If these self-proclaimed bhais think they can verbally and physically assault swayed mindless youngsters, and they are allowed to (do so) by the govt and by the censor board, then it is a shame.”
The army has boot camps for a reason. The ends fortunately or unfortunately justify the means.
These psychos are getting away with behavior that qualifies as criminal. Do we as a young country have it in us to stop this? The actor says he is “seriously disturbed”.
Thank god I grew up before this time.” He added: “If nothing else, can we at least have a parental advisory before these shows? or a minimum age requirement? or a late night telecast? Not prime time! Is this too much to ask?
