Bigg Boss Tamil Season 6 champion Azeem. We explain how the fact that he defeated Vikraman and Shivan creates a negative precedent.
- Azeem won Bigg Boss Tamil Season 6.
- Vikraman and Shivan took the second and third spots.
- Azeem received many reprimands for his rude and callous conduct.
On January 22, it was approximately 10:30 p.m. Vikraman and Azeem, two of the finalists, were held in Kamal Haasan’s hands. To declare the winner to the world, he was going to raise their hand. Kamal Haasan teased them for a little while as Vikraman and Azeem inhaled deeply. He then raised Azeem’s hand and declared him the victor of Season 6 of Bigg Boss Tamil. Azeem shouted with delight and took a few seconds to appreciate what he had accomplished.
Azeem and his supporters may be able to celebrate when he defeats Vikraman and Shivin. The worse has occurred for our civilization, though. Furthermore, this creates a negative precedent for reality television, which is once again just a reflection of society. Bigg Boss, according to Kamal Haasan, has been holding up a mirror to society for all 15 weeks of the programme. Additionally, the show’s 21 candidates are only a reflection of the culture we now live in.
Bigg Boss Tamil’s weekend episodes are hosted by Kamal Haasan, a champion of a modern society. But for him, the reality programme, and society as a whole, to see him next to someone with Azeem’s poisonous disposition and history of transgressions is a new low. Most weekends, Azeem was the topic of conversation due to his despicable behaviour. His strategy was to propagate negativity and undermine people’s self-respect. What would you name a person who consistently makes the same errors, despite the fact that they claim that it is not their strategy?
In his farewell address, Azeem took delight in claiming that he had always acknowledged his errors and apologised for them. When someone keeps making the same errors, what significance does his apologies have? He further defended himself by claiming that his actions are not typical of him outdoors. However, a number of his co-stars spoke of his poisonous and sexist behaviour on the sets in interviews with media outlets.
How is it fair to subject his other competitors to mental torment if, as he claims, he does not communicate with anybody outside the BB house? Azeem’s lack of etiquette adds to the strain already present in the Bigg Boss house, which is a pressure cooker ready to burst.
The majority of the competitors gave Azeem a red card during one of the weekend programmes for his behaviour. On the programme, Kamal Haasan had criticised him several times. On the programme, he made fun of Shivin, a transgender person. Kamal Haasan had forewarned him about his propensity for degrading everyone’s professional reputations.
There have been rumours that Azeem and Vikraman are influential politicians. How is normalising Azeem’s behaviour by the programme and the channel fair? How is it just to honour him on top of that? By declaring Azeem the winner, what sort of a precedent is the channel setting? It’s possible that Vikraman’s political and ideological views worked against him. What about Shivin, though? She “represent[ed] the transgender community,” according to Vikraman, “rose despite all obstacles and emerged as one of the finalists.” She deserves to be a contender, right? Wouldn’t it have been a step forward?
The voting process has been criticised for being manipulated for a number of years. Now, what does this say about the culture we live in if Azeem had actually received the most votes? Are people still that backwards-thinking that they would defend a repeat offender above other deserving competitors?
With this, the show’s moral message is compromised. According to Kamal Haasan and Krishnan Kutty, the business head of Vijay Television, 30 million people watched the programme. Isn’t this a horrible example for the people that watch the show, especially the young minds?
