Hillydee, it's not in speaking out against it, but rather how some of the comments have framed the issue.
Varun Badola was understanding and calm when calls were made for him to quit the show. He made no such emotional response when many posts were made in a similar vein regarding his decision to stay on the show.
But these are his two co-actors. And that too, two female actors. While many of the comments made here have also been made elsewhere in regards to VB, some posts were uncomfortable. Not the main post so much (which while Laila blames the actors, and has done the same in other threads and topics regarding Varun Badola), but some of the replies were close to crossing a fine line.
And even the main post, how do you expect an actor to respond when his co-actors are called out like that? Should he keep quiet, even though he converses with the forum members? Or should he reply when the morals of his co-actors are questioned and challenged? He didn't get worked up when these same charges were leveled at him,, but you can't expect him to keep quiet when it's now stretched to include his collegues.
Now, in response to Mr. Badola. Well, I don't watch this sickening show anywmore. Hell, I don't even have the stomach to read the updates. I do, however, enjoy reading many people's comments and posts evicerating this horrible show. And from their comments and posts, which usually summarize the episodes anyway, I can comment on how ridiculous this story is.
However, I have never called on him or any other actor to leave, nor have I said anyone should leave.
But one thing. I don't care if the producer loses money that's been invested. If the show is pulled off the air. The people in charge of this show shouldn't have had a revolving door of CVs who show no consistency in story, details or characterizations, So it's a bad thing for the crew working and people losing their jobs, sure. But come December 19th, if the TRPs are dismal, I will point and laugh. Not at the actors or the crew. But at the CVs, the channel, the PH, whoever's responsible for this mess of a show.
If reason the TRPs remain steady or increase. Well then, I guess the show has a steady audience, and none of our displeasure and criticism matter.
