Actor Siddharth who stole away the hearts of movie lovers by his strong performance in the youth based film Rang De Basanti is very much against the youth-based reality shows. According to his shows like "Roadies" and "Dadagiri" are offensive and should be banned. He feels that until and unless these shows are not banned, ragging in the colleges in India will never cease.
Siddharth who is a well known face in the Southern cinema posted on his twitter page, “Following conversations with friends I checked out 'Roadies' on MTV & 'Dadagiri' on Bindaas. If these two offensive shows are not banned immediately, ragging in Indian colleges will never end. If these self-proclaimed bhais think they can verbally and physically assault swayed mindless youngsters, and they are allowed to (do so) by the govt and by the censor board, then it is a shame."
The actor continued, "The army has boot camps for a reason. The ends fortunately or unfortunately justify the means. These psychos are getting away with behaviour that qualifies as criminal. Do we as a young country have it in us to stop this? "
The actor says he is "seriously disturbed. Thank god I grew up before this time."
He added: "If nothing else, can we at least have a parental advisory before these shows? or a minimum age requirement? or a late night telecast? Not prime time! Is this too much to ask?"
