As you read this, if you're in Mumbai and have a cable connection, you might have stopped receiving Colors.

Workers from a political party have visited and threatened cable operators in the city to cut off Colors, ostensibly because of the presence of Pakistani artists in Bigg Boss.

Pakistan's participation in the CWG is tolerated, "exclusive" interviews with Musharaff on all news channels are okay, Aman ki Asha is ignored, yet Bigg Boss gets blackballed.
There's more to this than politics, I guess.

More later in the day.
