There was a time when the real role of media was to excavate the truth and bring it to the common man. Cut to the present, media is all about sensationalism and TRPs so anything which is negative and can spread fast is given a further boost by the media folks. And normally the best victims for them is the cine celebrities.
 
This time, it was the turn of the Athiloka Sundari Sridevi. Recently she was present for an event in Mumbai hosted by the billionaire Mukesh Ambani. Within no time, the media showed its overaction by writing that Sridevi’s dress is very bad and her taste should be doubted. Those who are commenting may think it is freedom of expression.

However, this is going to hit the career of a person. Those who designed Sridevi’s outfit it will lose business and it is going to tarnish the image. As such, criticism is alright but stressing it particularly towards one particular point is useless. When the designer is fine and Sridevi is fine what is media’s problem. Anyhow, Sridevi might have no effect but the consequences would be borne by her designer.
