Whom will Rakhi marry next season?

By: Subhadeep Bhattacharjee

If you ask any toddler what is the television program he likes watching on Television don't be surprised if he answers Reality Shows instead of the good old Cartoon. Such has been the intrusion of reality shows in our lives via the 'Idiot Box' that we don't want to watch scripted serials and sitcoms any more. These shows keep us busy with voting for the contestants and checking with the regular updates on who is eliminated next.

From simple song and dance based competitive shows, reality television has taken giant leaps in the last few years in India. We have had a political reality show Lead India to choose our leader and than the Bigg Boss where celebrities with all their individual egos were made to stay in a house together. But the mother of all reality shows Rakhi Ka Swayamvar is currently on air. Hats off to the creative head behind the show, it couldn't have been any bigger than this.

Television's drama queen Rakhi Sawant will select her prospective husband from 16 contestants who are giving their agni pariksha in each episodes. Somebody once said “marriages are made in heaven”, he surely wasn't a part of the reality television world or else would have added the term 'television studios' to his famous phrase. After all the self-created controversies in her life Rakhi had kept the best for her marriage and the product is Rakhi Ka Swayamvar.

But wait whom will Rakhi marry next season? Well like all reality shows creative bosses behind Rakhi Ka Swayamvar must have conceptualised a season two for the show. Rakhi Ka Swayamvar cannot be done without Rakhi on the show and one thing the audience will swear by is there is no replacement for Rakhi Sawant on the small screen. No Sambhavna Seths or Payal Rohatgis can replace Rakhi on such a platform. So what do the channel bosses do?

Well the solution is to start another follow up reality show like Rakhi Ka Talak or The Great Indian Divorce Show after six months of the completion of Rakhi Ka Swayamvar. One more gem that can be added to the show is Abhishek Awasthi as the host in Rakhi Ka Talak with Ram already doing the honours in Rakhi Ka Swayamvar. This will ensure that there is smooth transition period between the two interlinked reality shows. As for the audience the channel bosses need not worry we all love reality shows don't we?

Fade In

Rakhi and seven woe-bestruck grooms are sitting in an elaborate wedding set. Director Ampareen starts the countdown..5..4..3..2..1...

Rakhi Sawant (RS) : I will not marries any of you before main convince hu ki aap mere jeeven saathi ban sakte hai

Probable Pati 1 : Main apna LCD Tv bech ke aapko washing machine khareed ke dunga..aapko koi takleef na ho iska pura khayaal rakhunga

RS: (Ponders and gives him the elimination dabba)

MS of PP2 with a wry smile on his face as he thinks that the box has a mobile phone where Rakhi will sms him at night.

CU of PP1's face

Repeated slowmo zoom ins of his face

Repeated slowmo zoom ins on RS's seemingly sad face

(Director Ampareen Lyngdoh: Boss this is not happening)

CUT she shouts

RS: My tears were all reals..Ampareen why you says cut?? Why why?

Ampareen: Come on Rakhi!! This is not your EMOTIONS!!

RS: Aise nahi hoga ji!! Not happenings!! Main gareeb hu!! Aap bade log stands in politics!! I got no stands!! Aap aise nahi kar sakte!! I wills go to media and complains about you

AL: Boss!! you can do for all I care. ngam khuslai..uuuu!! Thaith!!


As the argument continues, we can see Nirmal Sharma on phone asking for the teer ka numbers..In a far corner..Azenga is shaking his head and taking kwai...

As for the suitors, they start their own argument!!

Welcome to the media Industry folks!
