Mumbai: For the first time in the history of reality television, a participant has been thrown out for violent behaviour. It is learnt that the producers of Bigg Boss took the decision after all the participants threatened to walk out of the house if actor-director Kamal R Khan of Deshdrohi fame was not thrown out.


The show’s producer, Ashvini Yardi, confirmed, “Yes, Kamal R Khan has been ousted from Bigg Boss Season 3.” She added, “His behaviour was not acceptable at all. We don’t advocate the use of violence to settle differences. What Kamal did was completely out of line and against the rules of the Bigg Boss house. So he asked to leave the house.”


A source said, “Khan has been misbehaving with all the participants. What’s appeared on television is only about one-third of his bad behaviour. The last straw was when he threw a bottle at a participant. What began as a verbal spat between Khan and Rohit Verma took an ugly turn when Khan threw a bottle of water at Rohit. Rohit ducked, but Shamita Shetty wasn’t as lucky—the bottle hit her hand. Khan also got into a fist fight with Raju Srivastav.”


In the original version of the show, Big Brother, in Australia, two participants were temporarily removed for allegedly sexually assaulting another participant in 2006. In 2007, UK Big Brother participant Jade Goody was thrown out for racist remarks against Shilpa Shetty.


Indian reality shows too are no strangers to dramatic exits. TV actor Shweta Tiwari walked out of Iss Jungle Se Mujhe Bachao saying she couldn’t cope with jungle life and her co-participants. Politician-actor Rahul Mahajan walked out of Bigg Boss after being asked to apologise for running out of the house. TV actor Chetan Hansraj got into a fist fight with a participant on Bollywood Ka Ticket. Trade pundits say much of the high drama on reality shows is scripted.


Reality show writer Mamoj Munteshir, shocked at the latest episode, said, “I don’t see this as a good sign for India’s global image. With due respect to Khan, I ask if he’s proud of his behaviour in the Big Boss house.” He added that channels and production houses had to be accountable while selecting contestants for reality shows.
