    Ohh YES.. Rajeev is very right!
    Media shouldnt create such issues which are completely baseless until or unless the Person involved in that particular issue agrees on it..
    Im proud that Rajeev spoke on this issue! Muah Rajeev!

    Thanks, Well-said Rajeev the media can be held accountable but its the public that demand more celeb gossip so they supply it, whether its ethical or not.

    Personally the AbhiAsh wedding was over-hyped and over-reported but it was exactly what the couple wanted. Maximum exposure or else such details about their ceremony would not have leaked out.

    Even i felt the same. there was also a poll for the public in some channels asking us to vote for the best pair regarding abhishek and rani or abhishek and aishwarya.

    why was all this necessary. and after just two months of their wedding it is announced that rani and adi are engaged.

    when media cant give correct information it can very well be silent regarding a topic. because people actually beelieve in what is said by the media as many are dependent on the news and which makes way for unnecessary gossip and wastage of time.

    Well I know media should draw line but at a same time they are celebrity so ofcourse everyone loves to read about them.. Everything comes for a price.. Celebrities have to bear the brunt of their stardom. MEdia writes what ppl want to read.. So star like Abhishek will draw attention in whatever he does be it personal or private
