The shooting to Indian reality TV show Big Boss 4 likely to be ban, as Indian extremist party Shiv Sena’s aggressive agitation against the show continues.
Officials with the district administration said the collector would ask the channel to present its viewpoint within 48 hours. “A notice will be sent to channel’s Mumbai office and will also be stuck at the Lonavla bungalow gate,” the source said.
Miscreants of the party Shiv Sena started their protests outside the bungalow after chief Bal Thackeray objected to the inclusion of two Pakistani actors Veena Malik and Ali Saleem aka Begum Nawazish Ali in the show.
On Friday, the fourth day of the stir, two Lok Sabha members Adhalrao-Patil and Babar from Pune, were allowed to enter the bungalow, where they spoke to Channel representatives, who said they did not have the authority to call off the shooting.
The duo left after a telephone conversation with Gaikwad. “He has assured me that he will take necessary and appropriate steps immediately,” Adhalrao-Patil said.
If shooting is banned in Lonavla, the channel can run the show for a day or two more, depending on the day from when shooting is discontinued. If it gets banned on a Friday, only quarter to a half-day footage will be left.
