Actor Siddharth feels ‘Roadies’, ‘Dadagiri’ should be banned

New Delhi, March 24 (Calcutta Tube) Actor 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 behaviour that qualifies as criminal. Do we as a young country have it in us to stop this? (sic)’

 

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?’
