The television reality show, Big Boss 2 is certainly one of the most controversial shows being aired right now. While the Big Boss Tamil season one had its share of controversies when it was aired last year, this year the show has run into trouble within a week of its airing.
The Film Employees Federation of South India (FEFSI) has objected to this show being aired as over 90 percent of the workers employed do not belong to the union. As per the rules and regulations, at least 50 percent of the employees working on a project must belong to the union and this is not the case with Bigg Boss 2, we hear. Following this, the FEFSI has demanded the show be stopped from this weekend onwards.
In a report it is said Angamuthu Shanmugam, the general secretary of FEFSI, has been quoted as saying, “It came to our notice that around 90 percent of the production crew are from Mumbai, which is against the terms and conditions of the FEFSI. It was the same thing last year as well, but after discussing with Kamal Haasan, we ensured that 50 percent of the crew were from our association.”
News 18 Tamil, has quoted director R K Selvamani, the president of the FEFSI, saying, “Along with 100 workers, we are going hold talks with the Bigg Boss team. If they don’t cooperate, we will go on strike at the venue.”
With this being the scenario, Big Boss season 2 has already gone into trouble. It needs to be seen how the makers would resolve this issue so as continue with the show. The show, which is being hosted by Kamal Haasan, began with 16 original housemates. The guest for the first week was Oviya who was a contestant in season one.
