There seems to be a general belief that reality shows, which are supposed to show people as they are, are scripted. However, Meera Deosthale feels it is untrue. The actor, known for her shows such as Udaan and Vidya, says that these shows are, in fact, designed in a way that that the participant’s true self cannot be hidden.
“I don’t think they are scripted. I have been on reality shows as a guest. They create it in such a way that the real personality of the person participating is reflected. People who design these reality shows are really smart, I think,” she says.
However, she does admit that these reality shows are quite stressful for the contestants. “I am sure they must be extremely stressful. Ultimately whoever participates wants to win and votes play a vital role in that,” she says. Meera agrees that it’s tough to control your emotions on shows like Bigg Boss and adds, “It definitely shows the kind of person you are. If you are in a house with so many strangers and you have to co-exist with them in certain situations, there will be friction. But that’s where the audiences judge the contestants.”
