He has lodged a complaint for exploiting babies. “For the sake of making a serial, the makers cannot exploit and harass the children," Tirath said when told that some NGOs have complained to the ministry about the reality show. Even though the children"s parents are watching what is happening, the makers cannot separate them from their biological parents."
