Ranjini has asked her fans to stop following reality shows like Nijangal. Ranjini shared a still from Nijangal and highlighted what happens in the television world in the name of counselling. The show, which is airs on different channels and in different languages, has massive TRPs. Is this counseling? In fact, this succumbs to bullying, abuse, assault, battery, sexual discrimination, exploitation and public nuisance…..please people don’t fall prey to such shows, it is not helping you at all instead it degrades your entire family in public and the TV channels are making money out of you.” To guide them, there’s a panel of a counsellor, a lawyer and of course, the host – who tries to bring out the couple’s problems. However, often it is seen that the panelists lose their cool on the show and even physically abuse the contestants. A well known face of Malayalam and Tamil film industry, Ranjini seems to be miffed with the kind of reality shows that are finding audiences these days. I have taken these clips from Nijangal being telecasted on Sun TV, where Actress Khusboo grabs the contestant’s shirt and shouts. According to the show’s format, an estranged couple or married couple seeks advice on their relationship.
