Urgently ban reality shows involving children: Shoojit Sircar requests authorities

Mumbai: Director Shoojit Sircar, in a tweet, has asked authorities to ban reality TV shows that have children as participants.

Sircar said not only such shows are destroying the kids emotionally and physically but also taking away their innocence from them in early ages.

"Mounting pressure on the kids to perform, has become a stark reality of every urban child's growing up years. And I firmly believe our primary responsibility as a conscientious parent, as citizens and as makers of this film, is to not only raise this issue but also to raise it in a manner keeping in mind the sensitivity of the matter for the kids that face it," Sircar had told PTI.
