We had the task where Bigg Boss 14 contestants had to share their dark secrets to win the immunity stone from Rubina Dilaik. As we know, there have been similar tasks in the past as well. In Bigg Boss 11, Vikas Gupta revealed that he felt that he was responsible for the split between his parents. Last year, Vishal Aditya Singh revealed he was faced sexual assault as a child. However, there was no concept of other housemates rating the trauma faced by their colleagues on the show. Fans have called out the makers saying that playing with trauma is just not done.
In the episode that happened on Monday night, Eijaz Khan revealed that he was molested as a child. This is something he never shared with his father, and only his therapist knew about it. Kavita Kaushik also spoke about how her tuition teacher made advances at her when she was just 11. The bigger tragedy was that her mother did not believe her. Rubina Dilaik confessed that rumours of her marriage crumbling were true and Bigg Boss 14 was a last-ditch effort to save their relationship.
We can understand the sentiments of fans. This season of Bigg Boss 14 has been rather drab. There are no relationships to cherish or rivalries to be excited about. The entertainment quotient is also low. In the middle of all this, there was no need of a task to bring out traumatic incidents from the past lives of the contestants. As we know pain, trauma, agony are subjective and vary from one person to another. While some move on quickly, others are scarred for life. Eijaz Khan, who is on the show, has confessed that he is seeking therapy on a regular basis for his mental health issues.
It was extremely disheartening to see housemates ranking each other trauma’s on the show just for the sake of immunity. This time, eliminations are not happening via audience voting. The year has been a depressing one overall. We have had incidents that has made us realise the importance of mental health more than ever before. The task was absolutely unnecessary and depressing to watch. We wonder when Bigg Boss 14 creatives will finally get to work.
