Salman Khan is back on the small screen. And as he returns to host season six of the reality show Bigg Boss (BB, on Colors), he reiterates his promise that this time around, the daily prime time show will be a family-oriented one.

It's time Radhe, the parrot starts chanting radhe radhe, as he desperately needs divine intervention to stay in the Bigg Boss house this season. The talking Macaw parrot who, as publicised, will stay for 90 days with the inmates of the TV show, may just have to leave even before the show starts

today. Reason? The presence of the bird on the show has not gone down too well with animal rights activists who are threatening to take action.

"Birds and other animals used in films or shows are often treated as nothing more than props, and many suffer terribly. A film/TV show set, with its hectic activity, noise and hot arc lights, is a terrifying and foreign environment for animals. It's sheer cruelty. We urge the show to not use the parrot or any animal because they are not willing entertainers unlike the show's human participants," said Sachin Bangera, manager at PETA India.

Apart from the parrot, the show is also set to have a fish, called O'fish. "We have already complained to the Animal Welfare Board of India (AWBI) about this as well. Fish who are kept confined to bowls and tanks, lead empty and boring lives. In nature, fish would be swimming vast distances freely. Those confined to small tanks are often kept in solitary confinement, and can only swim in endless circles," he adds.

When contacted, a representative from the channel, Colors, said, "We have all the necessary permissions from AWBI." The vice president of AWBI, Dr Chinni Krishna, however, was totally clueless when contacted. "I don't know of any such permission," he says. Most films and TV shows internationally use digital images rather than using real animals during shoots.


Six Salmans for season 6
Host Salman Khan will make a hatke entry on the show. You'll see six Salmans that will be created using milo technology. The actor will be sporting six different looks from his hits such as Dabangg, Ready, Bodyguard, Ek Tha Tiger, Wanted and a French-bearded look that he is sporting for the show. Actor Rani Mukerji will introduce the 'common man' contestant on the show, a new addition to season 6

Very interesting, I was pretty surprised when they mentioned the animals. Although I like them, I don't have any pets because I don't have the time to take up that responsibility. One of my old room-mates had a puppy but she was never home so I had to take care of him day and night. I feel that the contestants will not be able to look after the animals and will most likely stress the poor things out.

I'm pretty sure the CVs have thought of something for that.
