Arshad Warsi is currently busy promoting Golmaal Again where he stars alongside Ajay Devgn,Parineeti Chopra among others. The movie is scheduled to release on November 20, 2017.
In an interview when Arshad was asked about Salman Khan hosted reality show Bigg Boss which is in its eleventh season, the actor said, “The show is down market.”
It must be noted that Arshad was the first host of the reality show which kickstarted in 2006. ”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 continued.
“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 [in content], 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,” he added.
He further explained how the actual reason behind such shows is lost amidst the controversies and quest for TRPs. ”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,” Arshad said while adding, “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.”
