Neeti Mohan is an amazing singer and a very beautiful lady. Neeti Mohan will be seen together with Diljit Dosanjh and Shankar Mahadevan on Colour TV’s Rising Star. The new Reality Show was going just fine. Later on the show, two contestants came, a singing duo and the things heated a bit. The duo went on praising Neeti Mohan and they took things way too far when they said Neeti Mohan was looking “Kadak and Rapchik in a red saree”.
Neeti Mohan was offended after hearing this and not just her but the other judges were offended by the comment as well. Neeti then lashed out on the contestants saying she is representing women on the panel and she won’t let anyone use such derogatory language for any women on the show. She then stood up and started leaving, Diljit Dosanjh, on the other hand, tried controlling the situation and called the contestants for the audition some other time. But moments later, all the three judges started laughing and said that they were joking.
There were well-known people from the country, one of them a woman but all of them found the comment on Neeti Mohan to be a ‘Joke’. They later said that they were playing a prank on them by slamming them. To have a manner to talk to people and have language control on a National Television, is it too much to ask from people? Acceptance of such language and later declaring the slamming a ‘Joke’ is the problem here. Such a comment on a Female Body should never be acceptable, they should have just asked the two men to return to their respective homes. It is sad that three of the judges could not see what was wrong with that language and with the two of the boys. Calling a women ‘Rapchik’ is equivalent to calling her ‘Maal’ or’ Tota’. Even in the era of #Metoo it is difficult for them to actually judge the character with the language used on a National Television for a woman.
