KIKI Challenge: Television Fraternity Stands DIVIDED and HOW!
Drake’s Kiki challenge has taken the internet by storm. It has emerged to be the latest trend on social networking forum and everyone from celebs to common people have been attempting it. The challenge involves people to get out of a slow-moving car and dance on the road. Here’s what TV folks have to say about this trend.
Abhinav Shukla: The hot and sexy Abhinav who is currently seen as the negative lead in the Colors’ drama Silsila – Badalte Rishton Ka thinks, “Kiki challenge is another validation of the fact that social media is making people stupid! Also, when we talk about safety, it can be perfectly safe if you get down from a slow-moving car on an open country road with no traffic! But if you try it on a highway then I cannot fathom one’s stupidity! Also, don't try this in Mumbai as you will either stumble over a pothole or fall into a manhole, the lucky ones will get hit by wrong lane violator!”
Akashdeep Sabir: “I’ve seen footage where a young girl was knocked out by a speeding car. It’s an irresponsible act and signifies nothing. These are punishable acts. As it is our infrastructure stinks. Cars crawl on the pothole-ridden roads. If in top commoners and celebs are going to get out and dance it’s going to get chaotic. And what does it serve? We have more important issues to work on!”
Aniruddh Dave: “The ongoing kiki challenge which is trending on social media is one of the most foolish trends. It's not at all safe. I feel public figures and actors should not do it since people follow them. When you never get down from a car to pick up some garbage and to put it in the right place, why do they get down from the car and dance?”
Pranitaa Pandit: “I would like to say it's not a safe act at all especially keeping in mind the roads and where we live. It makes no sense to do this and it is highly stupid. People in today's day and age are just doing anything in the name of entertainment. It's not at all cool and I would not vouch for it. I would not do something just because someone challenges me.”
Neha Kaul: The actress who is currently seen in &TV’d Bitti Business Waali says, “I think the Kiki challenge is fun and there's no harm really if people who are doing it are mature enough to know how to do it safely.”
Ayyaz Ahmed: Ayyaz who is seen playing the brutal character of Bhauji in &TV’s Agnifera; says, “There have always been challenges like the ice water bucket ASL challenge but I haven't done any until it's for a friend or closed one's benefit. As far as this challenge is concerned, it is safe if the right place is chosen.”
Sheeba: “That’s just crazy - it’s dangerous for you and other motorists. There’s a limit to social media keeping health-safety and propriety in mind. I think people should be more careful before blindly following the so-called trends.”
Puru Chibber: I know everyone has their own choice but I just want to tell them to please be careful. I recently saw a video where the person got hit by a car while doing the challenge. If you are doing it please check your safety first.
Naveen Sharma: Naveen, currently seen on Colors’ Naagin 3, asserts, “I am yet to do the challenge. I found it interesting though I would advise everyone to do it with proper safety measures and not a busy road.”
