Television reality shows have been making the headlines for all the wrong reasons. A few days back, these shows made news when I&B had issued an advisory asking private TV channels to “desist from showing children in a vulgar, indecent, suggestive and inappropriate manner on dance reality shows.” They had said that the children, who are seen performing dance moves, imitate grown-up actors or performers and as such which are inappropriate for kids.
Recently, during a conversation with Bombay Times, Terence Lewis said that he feels that these show for kids have a negative impact on children and he wouldn’t send his kids to any of the reality show. He said, “Children are impressionable, and television is a cut-throat professional place. To put them on a pedestal for a couple of months and suddenly take it all away when a new show starts, leaves a void within them. If I had a kid, I wouldn’t want him/her to participate in a reality show. It pushes the kid to an extreme level of ambition and desire.”
