The district administration is preparing to ban the shooting of Bigg Boss in Lonawala, under pressure from the Shiv Sena’s protests against the fourth edition of the reality show telecasting Pakistani artistes.
Sena workers continued its protest on the fourth day on Friday. A group of activists, led by Lok Sabha members Shivajirao Adhalrao-Patil and Gajanan Babar, crossed the barricades outside the bungalow.
Adhalrao-Patil and Babar were allowed to enter the bungalow. They talked with officials of the channel, who expressed their inability to take any decision on the continuation of shooting.
Adhalrao-Patil and Babar also spoke to district collector R.K. Gaikwad. Adhalrao-Patil told HT that Gaikwad assured him he would take steps immediately.
More than 50 Sena workers were detained and released.
Gaikwad told HT he had received a police report. “We are checking legal aspects on how the shooting can be stopped to maintain law and order. A decision (on serving a notice) will be taken soon.”
The Colors channel spokesperson declined to comment.
