Did He or Didn’t He?

15 Jul

The ultimate “confessions” show Moment of Truth’s Hindi version is here (the show should actually be titled “Making a Fool of Yourself on TV”). Its called Sach Ka Saamna.

For those not in the know, this show puts contestants through embarrassing questions about their lives. Usually at the end of the show in the best case they end up with some money and no family..or worst case no money and no family.

Looks like they have turned to quasi celebrities in India, which is a great idea…case in point Rakhi Sawant…who’ll probably be on the show after her “Swayamvar”.

The first bakra to create a controversy is ex-cricketer Vinod Kambli who decimated club like bowlers from Kenya to Zimbabwe. Apparently he said some things on the show not too complementary to Sachin Tendulkar and the BCCI.

..true to character (which means he has a great future in politics), he has now denied making any comments..

To Quote:

My family and Sachin’s family have felt bad about this. I have not said anything against BCCI as well. I have played for India for 18 years. I can’t even dream of speaking against BCCI,” said Kambli.

I guess we’ll find out…the guy is probably begging the show producers to pull his show.. the BCCI will remove his chaddis (as in pension)..

    I saw the news on TV and felt really bad for him. I can see a defamation case coming up
    I have watched the show on Star world and need to say it’s pure sadistic pleasure. I some how got bored after two episodes.

    PS: There is a possibility that it could have been leaked for publicity reasons =P

      I have never managed to watch the show.I cringe at the questions and cant bear to see people put thru such embarrassment..

    I am absolutely fascinated and reviled that people would actually volunteer to go on these kinds of shows. It is like watching a car-wreck! Looking forward to a wonderful summer.

    Sach Ka Saamna might just beat Rakhi ka Swayamwar as the stupidest show on TV..

      That is indeed saying a lot…

    Just this morning we were talking about the show over coffee…. how could people put themselves through such embarrassment for money? Aren’t most of these shows doctored?

    These shows at least some are doctored and poor guys/gals do it for money. see what is happening on
    “rakhi swaymva” so on and media is hyped on such issued
    blowing them out of proportion. what kambli said on sachin or BCCI is it such an important thing to debate and telecast for hours and hours. let the two parties plus concerned channel decide it. dont waste public time public money like this.
    what kambli did for once is order of the day for our netas
