Producers of Bigg Boss have moved the Bombay High Court seeking quashing of the complaint filed against them for obscenity on the show.
Endemol India Pvt Ltd moved the court after Sunil Ahire, president of Mumbai Pradesh Youth Congress Committee, filed a complaint against the producer, director, the channel and participants Rahul Mahajan, Payal Rohatgi and Sambhavana Seth.
The court on Monday has asked the producers to amend the petition and also to make the participants party to the petition.
Endemol, in its application, said there was no evidence in the complaint to even remotely suspect that it was guilty of the charges.
It has pointed out that it was not co-incidental that Sanjay Nirupam, who was the first to be eliminated from the show, also belonged to the party to which the complainant belongs.
Endemol also said Ahire was playing a political game as the show also included Rahul Mahajan, son of late BJP leader Pramod Mahajan. “It is all hype created by the competitors of the channel,” the application said adding that they (competitors) are trying to “influence” the minds of the public.
