BAG Films' crime show on Star News rates high

MUMBAI: Crime shows on television seem to be the cynosure of attraction lately with high TRPs on the cards be it Sony's Crime Patrol, India TV's Most Wanted or Star News' Red Alert. The latter has been soaring on the ratings charts lately. An official release from the production house that produces the show - BAG Films - said that Red Alert, that airs on the channel every Saturday at 11:30 pm has attained the first position in TRP ratings across all news channels as per latest release of TRP report.

The report says that Red Alert not only unearths crime but also reports the latest criminal trends. In order to understand the quantum of flesh trade in Indian society and its modus operandi, the Red Alert team decided to launch a sting operation in Delhi and Mumbai during the month of September. The team discovered that there was not only a flourishing network of pimps, prostitutes at a phone call away but famous models and actresses were an integral part of this entire network. The famous faces were part of the racket not because of pressure but because it was easy money or fun for them.

The Red Alert team achieved huge success when they trapped a famous actress who is recognised for her work in many albums. She has also worked under many famous banners as a supporting actress and has many films to be released in the pipeline. During the 24 days operation, the Red Alert reporters spoke to more than 400 pimps and 100 call girls out of which some were famous models and actresses. In spite of facing a lot of difficulties, the reporters succeeded in trapping famous faces in their camera who are involved in the sex racket, said the release.
