In a video clip, which found its way on social media, the judges were seen discussing about the smelly underpants of the kid contestant as well as his father. While their constant comments and remarks about the underwear left the father embarrassed, the kid went on to reveal that the mother often asks the father to remove his trousers and hits him in his bottom. The video clip went on to become viral on social media with many of the netizens expressing their displeasure and disappointment over telecasting this inappropriate behaviour on national television.
As per the notice issued by NCPCR, which was shared by ANI, the notice read that they have issued legal action against the channel, makers of the show as well as the judges, as it read, “The Commission has come across a video on Twitter from your kid’s dance show called Super Dancer Chapter 3 which was aired on Sony Entertainment Television, wherein it is seen that the judges on the show were asking the minor child vulgar and sexually explicit questions regarding his parents on stage. Further, the Commission on viewing the said video observes that all the questions asked to the minor child were inappropriate and disturbing in nature and not meant to be asked to children.”
