Lucknow: A case was filed Friday in an Uttar Pradesh court against Bollywood actor Salman Khan, who is also the host of the ‘Bigg Boss 4’ show, the producer and director of the reality show and some of the contestants over its vulgar content, an official said.
The case was filed in a court in Aligarh district under multiple sections of the Indian Penal Code (IPC), including 293 (sale of obscene objects), 294 (obscene acts and songs), and 120 B (criminal conspiracy).
It was filed in the chief judicial magistrate`s (CJM) court on an application filed by an Aligarh-based lawyer Anoop Kaushik.
Kaushik Friday moved the complaint application against airing of the reality TV show ‘Bigg Boss 4’.
"Besides Salman Khan, who hosts ‘Bigg Boss’, and five contestants of the reality show, the case has also been filed against MD of the channel, and the director and producer of the show," Kaushik told reporters in Aligarh, some 350 km from Lucknow.
"The five contestants against whom the case has been registered include Sara Khan, her husband Ali Merchant, Dolly Bindra, Shweta Tiwari and Sameer Soni," he added.
The court has fixed Nov 24 as the next date of hearing the case.
‘Bigg Boss 4’ has celebrity participants locked up inside an isolated house, without any link to the outside world. They are required to stay in the house under 24-hour camera surveillance.
