What fun is reality television if there’s no nautanki? Zilch!
The “nautanki and drama” factor seems to be the guiding factor behind all celebrity appearances in reality shows. Our TV and Bollywood celebrities have all learnt important lessons from the Reality TV Queen “Rakhi Sawant”. This became evident when Juhi & Schin, one of the celebrity couples in NDTV’s “Pati, Patni aur Woh”, threw a tantrum yesterday. Though all other couples (especially Rakhi-Elesh) are taking their parenthood seriously, Juhi-Sachin seem to be having problems.
Pati, Patni aur Woh is the desi version of Baby Borrowers, where celebrity couples are taken through a quick journey of parenthood. They are required to live with and take care of children of different ages, starting with 3-4 month old children. Presently, the couples are in the second stage and have been given 3-4 year old kids to handle. Juhi-Sachin have been given twin boys to take care of. This seems to have become very frustrating for Juhi. Her husband has been asked to prepare tiffin boxes for the working partners of other couples.
In yesterday’s episode, Juhi was asked to run a play school for all the kids and this did not go down well with Juhi. Juhi got so miffed that she started abusing right in front of all the kids and refused to take charge of any children. Sachin also refused to prepare the lunch boxes. The couple declared that they would not carry on with the show. Meanwhile, the real parents of all the children, who were watching the ongoings on a TV screen got very upset and started criticizing Juhi for her irresponsible behavior. They are also probably wondering (like us) if all this nautanki is for TRPs or just irritation at being given twins. Juhi dear, please don’t try to act like Rakhi. There cannot be two Rakhis in one show, you see!
Though Juhi claims that the producers are being partial towards them, we dare to disagree. When the ladies were asked to wear empathy bellies in the first week (pregnancy stage), Juhi was the most aggressive and irritated one. On the first day of the twins in her house, she did not even bother to feed them, forcing the real mom to visit! And what’s all this complaining about Sachin having to deliver lunch? Do real life parents of twins stop living? Don’t husbands go out to work, irrespective of how many little children they have? In fact, even moms go to work today and manage the house also. Juhi ji, wouldn’t it have been much simpler if you’d woken up at a decent hour and got ready at least by 10 AM? Your tantrum has proved that you are not ready to be real life parents yet. We shudder to think how real parents will hand over their precious ones to you!
