With TV liberally showcasing the reality of people onscreen, we begin to wonder if there are boundaries to be considered. A remark on similar lines was made by Shoojit Sircar, the director of popular Bollywood film Piku starring Deepika Padukone and Amitabh Bachchan.
In a twitter post, the director aired his opinion about the effects on children who are exposed to the glare of cameras at a tender age.

Humble request to authorities to urgently ban all reality shows involving children.it’s actually destroying them emotionally & their purity.
He wrote an open request to authorities urging them to place a ban on TV reality shows that involve children.
Sa Re Ga ma Pa Li’l Champs 2017, Sabse Bada Kalakar, India’s Best Dramebaaz and Super Dancer are a few reality shows that gained quite a bit of popularity with viewers. We wonder if the director is pointing out to any current shows.
