Hey Big smile lets not forget TV serials making money off  of Gujju accent...We don't sound or act that stupid...I am sick watching that silly Dayaben over acting her gujju ishtyle...Grrrrr AngryDead
 
Stereotype is done to most and that happens even in US...I guess part of life Embarrassed
LOLab8 gujju!!!Varsha i dont have anything to say LOLWinkbut i must say they r one of the best  business minded ppl i have ever seen ...but  nothing is too much entertaining when it is excessive..but yes i agree with u its a part of life but still CV should have their limit..of making funWink  usa tv channels they do this kind of things too but always has a decent boundary...SmileSmile

I think this stereotype if for all regions...Punjabis are shown loud mouth, Gujjus are shown with a weird accent, all Marathi women are shown as Kamwaali Bai's, all Nepali's are gorkhas, and our Nagaland countrymen are spoken to as if they are Chinese and not Indian......I do agree that it gets on one's nerves cos there is more to show of the culture than just this slapstick style comedy...but I do believe that this happens with all regions and not just one...

Stereotypes are a part of human nature. They occur everywhere.

Usually, I've never felt too bothered by stereotypes. Unless the person stereotyping is actually being racist or demeaning, I'm fine with stereotypes for entertainment or humor. I like the kinds of Peter Chao or Sarah Silverman who embrace their own culture stereotypes.

I understand though why people feel let down by such television shows. We expect the family shows to promote diversity and culture - not ignorance. Unfortunately, there is no cure for ignorance.

I absolutely agree with this topic!

I am a bengali and it drives me crazy when I see people in the national TV wearing white red bordered sarees and painting their finger tips red... always speaking of  "machher jhol"Angry

I literally hated the movie called "Devdas" because of its melodramatic, forcible intrusion of Bengali culture. Angry

A comedy act is ok.... but when you are making a sensible film or serials having strong bengali backdrop....this type of nonsense is really irritating.Ouch

I also hate the way how the national TV make fun of sardarji'sConfused

I know what you're talking about.
 
Im a Bengali too, and like Sash said above, its really ridiculous and DEMEANING to say the least, to watch some gay-looking kohl-eyed "Bengali" Babus behaving in a smart-aleck manner. And the women wearing sarees that look right out of the 19th century.
And the accent...the less said about it, the better.Dead

I completely agree with you...I'm not South Indian but making fun of a culture is unacceptable. There's so much to be explored about the South Indian culture rather than emulating the same old stupid costumes and choreography that's been repeated to death in all Indian dance reality showsThumbs Down.
Moreover, the theme for this week is supposed to be "folk dance".
Well, I'm sorry but there is definitely nothing "folk"  about the performance they are doing. Tollywood is not a form of folk dance.Confused

Correction. Tollywood is the Bengali film industry,LOL
 
Yeah, i dont watch JDJ regularly but i did see the episode last week. A little fun is acceptable but overdoing it should be a strict no-no.
