Saturday, November 13, 2010
BHOPAL - A civil court here has served notice to the chief executive officer (CEO) of Colors TV channel for showing vulgar content on reality show “Big Boss” and cheating the audience by organising the wedding of an already married couple.
“The court of class two judge Suresh Srivastava served notice to the CEO of Colors TV and told him to be present on November 19,” Yawar Khan, advocate of the petitioner said Saturday.
Shamshul Hasan, a local resident, filed the petition Friday, saying that apart from showing vulgar content, the channel cheated viewers by organising the wedding of participants Sara Khan and Ali Merchant, who are already married.
The wedding has been mired in controversy after the bride’s parents claimed that Sara and Ali had married two years back.
“The issue is over and we have nothing to say,” Sara’s mother Seema Khan told IANS when contacted Saturday.
