What matters is how real reality shows are - Aditi Shirwaikar.May 11th, 2009 - 2:47 pm ICT by Sampurn Wire
After Nach Balliye, Aditi Shirwaikar is all set to co-anchor a wedding reality show called Star Vivaah on Star Plus along with Monish Behl. However this cute bubly girl refused to say anything about the format, “I will let you know everything officially in a few days time.”
According to our source, this BAG films production, which will come on air in late May is a purely positive reality show. It will give a big platform to prospective grooms and brides to find their ideal matches. It is just like any other matrimonial service albeit on a larger scale. However the source add that unlike Rakhi Ka Swayamar, Vivah will not arrange the wedding, if the boy and the girl like each other , their respective families will have to take the matter forward themselves.
Asked to comment on Reality shows per se, Aditi says “They are here to stay. What matters is how real they are. Here I can only speak for myself. We (Mohit and Me) never faked our emotions in Nach Balliye 4. The problem with this format as in real life you really don’t know whether the other person is faking it or not.” She did not feel that Indians will be coy about talking marriage on national television, “Times have changed and our audiences are now ready to accept western norm of behaviors. Similar formats like Bachelor are already a big hit abroad”. -Sampurn Media
