Dadagiri is an Indian reality show .
About the show
Started off its 1st season in 2009. Its a show where participants agree upon getting bullied by the "hosts" who make them do tasks to eventually win the show. There have been 4 seasons till now and each season has about 16 to 17 episodes running for 42-45 minutes each.
In Dadagiri: Beat the Bullies, the bully "Esha, the Goddess" used to put up her challenge at the last and used to humiliate the contestants most (even asked the contestants once in an episode to rub their noses on her boots). In one episode, she slapped a contestant Ravi Bhatia (an unscripted physical attack), after instigating a brief, antagonistic verbal exchange. In response he slapped her, and then kept saying 'How can she slap?". This resulted in the male host (and several other members of the crew) attacking Bhatia, with the crew appearing to be slow in breaking them up. The male host also used offensive and threatening language toward Bhatia. Bhatia subsequently sent a legal notice to the producers, asking for a public apology.
