“Celebrity is an insecure, vulnerable and utterly isolated individual; they shall agree because of repercussions or pressures that may upset the flow of one career one opportunity and so they do,” he wrote on his blog.
The Piku star said that the actors also go through the pressure of always being in news: “But the need to attend such is also challenged by them that need to be recognised, need for their mission to be acknowledged, to be seen in media, to be talked about.”
“But this can effectively happen when they get noticed with someone who shall be talked about. Irrespective of the real reason they have been called out to do. The celebrity then is the obvious choice,” he added. (Also Read: Oops. Amitabh Bachchan’s Twitter Account Hacked)
