Shruti Sharma And Monalisa’s Show Namak Issk Ka Receives Flak For Regressive Ad, Show Gets Mixed Reviews From Netizens
Namak Issk Ka Receives Flak For Regressive Ad
Indian television is best known for the variety it offers to fans. Makers are always trying to come up with something new for different target audiences. While some daily soaps do well, others don’t. Then there are those which end up in the limelight for all the wrong reasons. Gul Khan and Karishma Jain’s latest television show Namak Issk Ka falls in this very category. Many netizens have slammed the makers and have claimed that the advertisements and promos are highly regressive.

The first episode of the show went on air last night and received mixed reviews. Some loved it, but many others were confused. Featuring Shruti Sharma, Aditya Ojha and Monalisa in the lead, Namak Issk Ka follows the story of a dancer named Chamcham. What has offended many viewers is the plot of the show which asks a controversial question-- will anybody accept a ‘nachaniya’ (dancer) as a daughter-in-law. While some have lauded Shruti’s dance moves, others have raised questions about the story-line.

Rejected #NamakIsskKa ! ? @ColorsTV https://t.co/eUlFhTF0qu
Okay I’m not even biased when I’m saying this but #NamakIsskKa is a regressive show and the acting is pathetic. I used to love Gul’s shows but this one is utter crap. Aditya Ojha not that impressive but he was so much better than Shruti Sharma who was just....expressionless https://t.co/4Owm02r3NV— ShiviYHC (@ShiviYhc) December 7, 2020

Living in the 21st century and this is the content being shown on Indian TV serials. Are you hiring people with regressive mentalities as script writers? And answering your question - YES I'd marry a strong, independent woman. @ColorsTV #namakisskka #ColorsTV #India— Soulful Pebble. (@soulfulpebble) December 7, 2020
Wat is "नचनिया"?Using wrong, regressive words just to attract audience and TRP is wat they r doing. Is DANCE not our culture ? Insulting our art,culture is wat left with these TV shows..and web series. Shamefully using the word so many times.. #shameful #ColorsTV #NamakIsskKa https://t.co/iI4UYFjGU1— Miss Crazy Soul?

One of the tweets which went viral was shared by UP police officer Rahul Srivastav. He tweeted: “A flippant advert of a TV serial, ‘profaning’ a ‘sacred’ art form. The ‘Yellow & bold headlines’ asks the viewers “would you accept a ‘dancer’ as your daughter in law ? Dance as a gracious art form needs to be celebrated rather than de"moralized" This is plain ‘REGRESSIVE’.”
What is your opinion of the show?
