Hello Mr Bhushan,
Your remarks in your recent interview inspired me to research on recent and past bigamy cases. And guess what, after thorough research I found no pending or past bigamy cases in India. You mentioned in your interview that you started this bigamy case very well knowing that it is a social crime because it happens in the indian society and ppl start accepting it in the long run. My question to you is on what basis and references have you come to the conclusion ? In my knowledge and experience with ppl I would not agree to your statement because no human being with an ounce of morality would accept any such bigamous relationship or illegal relationship.
There is'nt any such bigamy cases in India which can be referred to where a bigamous relationship has been accepted. On the contrary there was a case in Kashmir awhile back where a muslim (although in islam a man could marry more than , it is prohibited now) husband was charged with bigamy and sentenced to 10 years to omprisonment.
On what basis are you showing this disgraceful track on national television ? Indian society should walk on the steps of progressiveness and not go back and embrace prehistoric methods. There was a time when young girls and women would be burned alive on the death bed of their dead husband as an evil custom Sati. We do practice Sati anymore ?Do we? No. Then why BIGAMY ? Why disgracing the sanctity of Marraige ? Anyways ,ppl are already losing faith in marraige. The divorce rate is going up everywhere.
This bigamous relationship needs to end. There should be positive vibes and characters in your serial who inspire your audiences. We already know that the society comprises of evil . Now you need to show the consequences of evil ? Do not try to justify evil crimes,but redeem yourself by correcting them.
accepted by whom? the parties, or the judge?
A judge will hardly accept such a relationship - that's a given surely??
What is disgraceful to you is fictional entertainment, albeit far fetched and boring, for others
As for the sanctity of marriage, even for where you live I'm sure, the stats will tell you how sanctimoniously precious that relationship is held....marriage is no longer the marker by which a stable socially acceptable relationship is necessarily going to succeed
Mr Bhusan I dont think has a lot to do with divorce rates or indeed is he any form of contributory factor in encouraging the practice of bigamy.
His sole point is to get people talking about his show and to give it attention - which is exactly what you and I are doing. He is not a moral policeman or a custodian for law protection or enforcement
Characters do at times have positive vibes and are inspiring - but if they were like that all the time they would not reflect reality and therein lies the point - life for some people does include non socially acceptable relationships, to pretend these relationships dont exist is delusional
Finally insofar as bigamy cases are concerned, you'd only get to know about them if someone complained....I'd bet my pocket's worth there are loads of guys living with more than one wife at the same time and that they are living perfectly happily too...they have their reasons....
This is not the first serial to show bigamy, Sajan Ghar Jaana Hai actually went so far as to condone it....
