The highly successful and equally controversial-Bigg Boss, you may like it, you may dislike it, but you just cannot ignore it. The drama, the fun, hormonal conflicts, the celebrations, the tears, the ecstasy, the confrontation, the repulsion, the attraction, the betrayal, the loyalty,the dropping names, the dirty games, the pressure, the pleasure-it is all there in Bigg Boss.
In the past seasons, we have seen so many romances, so many fights, so much tears shed, so much happiness that some people are perplexed. Bigg Boss is scripted, they say. Well, the participants themselves have said that everything is impromptu and nothing is scripted in Bigg Boss. KRK, Tanaaz, Kashmira Shah, Monica Bedi, Vindu, Shweta Tiwari etc, have all said that they are put in circumstances where their real selves emerge, the pressure is there to such an extent; that even if it was scripted or an acted show, it would be tough to carry the act for 2 months.
Kashmera Shah on Bigg Boss scripted or not
“I don’t think Bigg Boss is rigged because Rahul Roy won Season One by default. Actually, there was some confusion about voting. People voted for Rahul thinking that they were voting to evict him. So he got more votes and won. Otherwise, why would anyone want to spend money and vote for Rahul?
Situations and fights cannot be scripted. When you are without television, newspapers and clocks, and eat bad food, you get irritated and tend to fight.
I stood up for myself and for people who were being bullied. I did what I felt was right.”
Samir Soni on Bigg Boss scripted or not?
“I really cannot say whether it’s rigged or not. But it can be manipulated. For example, only my fights were shown on television last week.
Voting cannot be manipulated because you cannot stop people from voting. But I guess there are favourites. I never had the elimination protection by becoming the captain of the house. When it was my turn, they refused to have a captain in the house and said it was creative decision. I don’t know whether it’s a coincidence or not. The other housemates have been saved from eviction in the past.
Veena Malik and Sara Khan had special powers when they left the house to save Ashmit Patel whereas the other evictees were given power only to nominate a housemate. Ashmit was protected every time and it worked out in such a manner that he reaches the finale.”
Ketaki Dave on Bigg Boss rigged or not
“The situations and fights cannot be created, everything is real. People can be fake for a few days but their true colours will come out when they get frustrated. They forget that the camera is on them 24/7, and tend to fight. For instance, Dolly (Bindra) was just being herself. She was not fake but honest.
This season, Shweta Tiwari conducted herself very well. She deserves to win. I can see myself in her. The only difference is that I didn’t last for so long. I was missing my family and started crying, and requested the audience to vote for me.”
Rupali Ganguly on Bigg Boss rigged or not?
“Nothing was scripted in the first season. After a few days in Bigg Boss, you lose your mind because you are disconnected from everything. I don’t know how the voting system works but I am sure they don’t manipulate it.
I don’t think getting Dolly Bindra back to the house was scripted in this season. I liked Dolly because she was entertaining. After she was thrown out after the fights, I called some people from the production house and asked them to get her back. I am sure there were many people like me who liked her and voted for her.
I found it a little cheap when Ali Merchant and Sara Khan decided to get married on the show. Their wedding looked manipulated for the TRPs though I think a show like Bigg Boss doesn’t need that.”
Debojit Saha on Bigg Boss scripted or not?
“The situations are created because of the various tasks given by Bigg Boss in the house. But the fights are real.
We are neither briefed nor given any instructions before entering the house. We are just asked to be ourselves. If the housemates have watched the earlier seasons, they would know that without any masala, there are chances of getting evicted within a few weeks. So to save themselves, some of them try to spice up things with their antics for footage.
Officially, we don’t have any concrete proof to say whether the votes are manipulated or not. If the channel feels the housemate is not providing much footage for the show and decides to evict them, I think it’s fine.
I don’t know whether the Ali-Sara wedding was for the TRPs or not. But I don’t think there is anything wrong even if they did do it for the TRPs. At the end of the day, they are also doing business and need to keep up the curiosity for the show.”
Viewers may recall that when Jade Goody had to leave Bigg Boss(Season 2) house due to her cancer treatment in a matter of 2 days, cynics said that it was all scripted, a move to increase the TRPS. But the truth is there for all to see. Also, Bigg Boss is an Indianized version of Celebrity Big Brother, which Shilpa Shetty won, a moment of pride for us? So does that mean, all the racial insinuations that Jade had put on Shilpa was scripted and was her win a scripted one as well? So let us know if Bigg Boss is scripted or not?
