Television reality shows have finally been prohibited by the Andhra Pradesh State Human Rights Commission. ‘Aata’, a dance reality show on Zee Telugu channel, had been for long facing a petition filed by some NGOs. The Commission at last pronounced its verdict with urgent effect and directed the police to take action against such shows on other channels.
As children in such channels were being portrayed in an “objectionable manner”, which was violation of human rights, Commission Chairman Justice Subhashan Reddy said that the panel, therefore, felt a need to check such shows.
