Ban weddings on reality TV, says women's panel

“There should be strict restrictions on such marriages. All media houses must come forward for this,” NCW chairperson Girija Vyas said. “It should be banned.”

After actor Rakhi Sawant’s engagement on a reality television show last year, late Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Pramod Mahajan’s son Rahul is all set to get married on the “Rahul Dulhaniya Le Jayega” show on NDTV Imagine channel late on Saturday.

Out of the three finalists – Nikunj Malik, Dimpy Ganguly and Harpreet Chhabra – Rahul will
chose one as his life partner in front of millions of viewers.

Vyas said that the NCW is in constant touch with the Information and Broadcasting ministry
on the issue. “We have written to them, they have replied to us. We think legislation needs to be brought to stop all these weddings.”
