Amita disappointed with producers of ‘Saas Vs Bahu’September 23rd, 2008 - 7:26 pm ICT by IANS
Mumbai, Sep 23 (IANS) Television actress Amita Chandekar is disappointed with the producers of the reality show “Saas Vs Bahu” for not giving her a wild card entry after she was excluded from the show on the basis of poor performance by her team.Amita, who was the highest individual scorer on the second week, was shown the gate along with her team mates Shilpa Saklani and Chhavi Mittal .
While Shilpa will be seen again on the show as she has been given a wild entry, Amita’s fate is still undecided.
“I have nothing against Shilpa, but I am surprised to know that Shilpa has been given a wild card entry while I am left out. But still there are two more wild card entries which I am looking forward to,” model turned actress Amita told IANS.
“I was the highest scorer from my team and, therefore, as per usual practice I should have got the first preference,” added Amita who played significant roles in serials like “Kasturi”, “Kasamh Se”, “Piya ka Ghar”, “Kahin To Milenge”, “Kya Hadsa Kya Haqeeqat” and “CID: Special Bureau”.
She thinks that the format of the show is very complicated and there are several areas where it can be manipulated.
“The format of the show is very confusing and complicated which leaves an ample scope for manipulation. There are many loop holes in the show which needs to be worked out,” said Amita who debuted with Balaji’s “Kutumb”.
Amita, who along with Karan Patel had made it to the semi-final in “Naach Baliye 3″, said the whole process of judging a participant in any reality show should be more transparent so that the allegations of them being rigged can be overcome.
“Whether it be judges or studio audience voting or for that matter even SMS voting, the whole process should be directly experienced by public in order to have a complete transparency.”
However, the producer of the show Siddharth Tewary told IANS that the decision to give a wild card entry to Shilpa was solely of the judges - Aroona Irani and Longinus Fernandes.
“It was their decision and we have nothing to say on it. The show is not about individual performance and the marks are not calculated individually. So Amita’s scoring high marks will not give her an advantage.”
As far as the format of the show is concerned, Tewary said: “The format of the show was made clear to all the participants before signing the show, so there is no point in complaining about it now.”
The show which started on Aug 25 comprises of 15 popular TV’s mothers-in-law and daughters-in-law competing with each other for the scheduled 55 episodes spread over 11 weeks.
Each team consists of three daughters-in-law competing with an equal number of mothers-in-law in a week. Based on the performance spread over a week from Monday to Friday, one team is eliminated at the end of every week.
