Its pathetic to see indians bowing down before the false bollywood/cricket gods. wakeup people.
The more people engage in this sort of slavish/stockholm syndrome behaviour the more you see celebrities trampling over people and treating them like shit.
Even in BB, all of them are folding their hands and are all 'bhai bhai' and salman is walking with his chest out and making humiliating remarks to them
I agree.. People are judging action according to a person rather than juding person based on their action.. It seems more like dictatorship.. this is the reason why the SUPERSTARS always talk down to normal people..so what if Salman is more successful.. does this give him more right and the less fortunate TV actors less right?? Since Salman Khan is more successful it is OK for him to humiliate people, threaten them.. and since the housemates are less successful they have to take the humiliation.. I want to see Sky talk to Salman Khan the same way he does with others, I want PM to be able to 'spare me!!' Salman Khan like she does with others... but no.. they can't do that because apparantly Salman Khan is more successful so they have to suck up to humiliation..
If you are giving so many advantanges to a superstar let me let you about the disadvantages also. First thing with context to this situation is many people will come down and deman the "superstar" for being judgemental and taking the risk to speak out and express what more than half the world who is watching is already saying and feeling. And the superstar was ridiculed for doing it once with Sid but chose to do it again with the contestatnts despite being riduculed for his actions severely back then. So I would say it took guts for the superstar to say these strong words even with the threat of public ridicule for some people who dont even matter.
Now there are going to be umpteen people coming up who will say he used his superstar status to settle personal scores. That couldnt be farther from the truth. The thing is he put aside his personal image becasue he knows that's going to be beaten up by people bringing up his past and is letting it be torn apart for a bunch of nobodys who dont even matter. These guys career will finish as soon as BB is over but Salman will still exist beyond the show. He in fact took a bigger risk by putting himself up for the ridicule which is sure to follow.
THe show was getting plain difficult to watch with the constant bullying and hitting below the belt comments and the message they wanted to convey is I guess that only dirty fights are not going to garner any TRPs, so please stay on the clean side. This year BB has not been able to control anyone and fights have gone haywire. The whole show is fraught with clear manipulations and it is plain for anyone to see that the show is rigged. The creatives this season did a terrible job by focusing on wrong things and not being able to control the situation.
I am not suer Salman's intervention will make any difference to the likes of Sky becasue he is just beyond understanding that he could do anything wrong, but let's hope the others understand and take the show in a lighter, more fun direction.
