After the success of Rakhi Ka Swayamvar, NDTV Imagine is coming up with yet another unique show called Pati Patni Aur Woh. The show is being produced by BBC and is a desi version of international show Baby Borrowers. This show will isolate unique celebrity couples from their glamorous lives, and thrust them into the real world, where they will become parents.
Taking on parenting challenge are Debina Bonnerjee and Gurmeet Choudhary, the idol jodi of Ram Sita. On the other hand there is another couple from the TV world who is happily married since years, Shilpa and Apoorva Agnihotri. Then the show also has recently engaged couple, who got hitched on television, Rakhi Sawant and Elesh Parujanwala. There is newly wedded couple, the favorite bahu and beta of television, Juhi and Sachin Shroff. Last but not the least we have Gaurav Chopra and Mouni Roy.
In this show, the couple will go through the challenging, frustrating but rewarding experience of parenthood from infancy to adolescence. The couple will be spending an entire month in a closed environment, monitored by cameras 24X7, which will capture their journey on new life discovery as first time parents. Their journey will be divided in stages.
Pregnancy: Women will be made to wear empathy bellies similar to that of an 8 months pregnant woman, and will have to attend pre-natal classes.
Infants: A new born baby will be handed to them and they have to take care of their each and every need.
Toddlers: They come in next with their own sets of demand and tantrums.
Pre-teens and Teenagers: These are the rebellious years when parents need to learn how to discipline them.
The Elderly: Here the couple will need to show the maturity and understanding in dealing with them. The show is of 30 days and will be aired by the end of Diwali. There are no winners and eliminations during the show, or the public sms voting.
My take on this: I feel that the reality shows should have a reality check on. It’s true that people are glued to these, but they need to have some kind of a limit on what is to be made as a theme for reality sake. And Rakhi Sawant, doesn’t she have better things to do in life other than doing these crappy things. Rakhi Ka Swayamvar!! Big Boss… and what not, and again she is in this one too. God give us a break….and my salute to the parents who left their toddlers with these celebrities for the sake of fame and money.Dr.Pranoy Roy are you so bothered about TRP’s? ……I hate such crap…
