TV Celebs Give Their Take On Controversies

TV Celebs Give Their Take On Controversies

Gautama Buddha once said, “In a controversy the instant we feel anger we have already ceased striving for the truth and have begun striving for ourselves".

Controversy is a part and parcel of a celebrity's life and it comes in hand with fame and stardom. Some wise man has said that 'any publicity is good publicity,' and a lot of celebs from tinsel town believe in the same. Publicity is a part of an actor's life, positive or pessimistic right from signing a project to relationship status, throwing tantrums on set to getting replaced in a show or any other sort of personal life 'gossip.'

Any information about a celebrity's personal or professional life becomes a news for media. Some actors love it and some don't. Some actors fish for it and some provide it through their sources. But does it help them and do these controversies have an influence on actors? How do they react to such stories - some self-spread and some not!

Mumbai Live got in touch with TV's popular celebrities who spoke their heart out about how they handle such circumstances.

Bharti Singh: Yes this is true! A lot of times media writes stories without even cross checking the news with me. News like I am not in good terms with my fellow comedians or a report on my relationship and marriage. I would like to clear that Bharti is a very bold girl; if I am getting married I will inform everybody publicly. I prefer to ignore such reports where my quote is not mentioned.

Debina Bonnerjee: It definitely affects, but being in this industry I have learned to not pay much attention to such reports, and hence I let it go, quite easily. All I can say is, Start using this formula in life and you’ll become successful. It is better to not keep anything in mind - be it any kind of criticism, good or bad - just let go everything and you’ll be happy for rest of your life.

Vahbiz Dorabjee: Media should understand that we actors are also human beings, and it is not only us, but our family also gets affected by such stories. One important aspect I would like to mention is that if you want to reach somewhere in life you should start ignoring such news. It is necessary for media to be a bit sensitive before publishing any news.

Ridhima Pandit: I take such reports very emotionally; I just can’t understand how to handle such situations. Sometimes, I feel I should immediately put my reaction on twitter but then for a second I even think that it would be of no use as it won’t reach to a maximum number of people. If I go to talk about tantrums and rumors then there are some people on set who like to target the lead of the show. It was a very dark phase of my life when this happened to me.

Barun Sobti: It depends from person to person, mostly because I come from a small town where such an industry gossip doesn't really spread on an everyday basis. You grow up with a certain image in mind and poise, but when you come into a city like Mumbai and become popular, people start loving their image and fame, and hence they bothered by such controversies.

Shivani Tomar: Controversies have happened with me so much that I have now started ignoring them. Nothing more.

We wonder if media should really focus on personal life and controversies? Is it really worth the readers' time? What do you have to say about it? Tell us in the comment below.
