Starry Tantrums in Reality Shows!!

Celebrity reality shows are the new fad of the time. We not only get to see our favorite stars entertaining us but we are also getting to see the "not very entertaining" real side of some of them too.

Today in the midst of reality shows, we get to see the real side of many actor/actresses.
Celluloid or small screen gives these actors name and fame and even before they realize, their popularity rises sky high. But not all can take this rise in status in their stride. Some really lose their connection to the ground and get dizzy in fame. They start behaving as stars and with celebrities appearing in so many shows, this real side is becoming too conspicuous.  
 
Roping in celebrities to take part in reality shows is the current fad ruling television channels. Multifaceted celebrities, usually the popular ones from different shows are chosen as contestants and presented in celebrity reality shows. These celebrities in turn cash in on their popularity and play a major part in making these shows popular and earn the channel high TRPs. Some notable examples of such famous shows are – Jhalak Dikhla Jaa, Nach Baliye, Jjhoom India and many others. The success of these celebrity shows has opened the floodgates and now almost all channels have followed suit to have at least one such show.   
 

Many acts of these stars are now showing that they are unable to get their star status out of their system. How can anyone forget the actions of Shekhar Suman and Sanjeevani in Jjhoom? A judge of the caliber of Anandji of Kalyanji Anandji fame was put down by them when he went on to criticize their singing as a judge in the show. The same show saw Chavi Mittal behaving the same way with the judges Mahesh Bhatt and Shabana Azmi when Chavi’s singing was criticized. Few weeks back we saw the same happening with Gauri Pradhan when she faced the flak from the judges on her below the mark performance in the Balaji reality show “Kabhii Kabhie Pyaar Kabhii Kabhie Yaar”. And now the latest one to join the bandwagon of “starry behavior” is Twinkle Bajpai in another Balaji show “Lux Kaun Jeetega Bollywood Ka Ticket”. Twinkle never left a chance to put down other contestants in the earlier rounds but when she found herself at the bottom, she preferred walking out of the show instead of facing the criticism from others. These are just few!!!  
 
Stars showing tantrums when faced with criticism is becoming a common factor now in these celebrity reality shows. They forget that they may be a celebrity, but when it comes to such contests they are simply participants and should leave their star status out of the sets. Making a mockery of the judges or suddenly finding fault with the format when put in a negative situation is not the right attitude for a contestant. As a contestant, accepting criticism or eliminations need to be taken in a sporting spirit. One can always express unhappiness behind the screen and not openly.

Is it the lack of sporting spirit, or inability to believe that they can be criticized too or is it some attention seeking tactics? Or is it some scripted drama just to raise the TRP? Whatever it may be, it sure raises the question mark on their behavior!!

Bhaskar.T 12 years ago Shekhar's action I still remember clearly. He had insulted Anandji. That was too bad. Chavi's remark fr Shabanaji was just too bad.

But Gauri Pradhan Tejwani and Twinkle were no less. Twinkle did the whole thing because she knew she was going to get eliminated now. Sore Looser!!!!

And Gauri. Well whole thing was finally scripted =)))) But surprising that how could she agree to play such deplorable drama. But then maybe it was not such a big issue as she has a tendency to show displeasures at the drop of hat. She is a good actress no doubt but she need to remember that just by doing few handful of serials don't make you a superstar. As advil said do go and see real superstars. Even they don't behave as Twinkle or Gauri behaved.

advil
advil 12 years ago hahahahaha.....hahahahaha some people wanted articles as proof to show them that their favorite behaved in a brattish manner and now when here is actually an article that hits the nail on the head, then they say it is one sided.... now how fast views change...!! hahahahaha

Judges should know that these TV actors are celebrities....hahahaha... what about the judges , are they not celebrities? ek do serial kiya nahi ki so many tantrums, at this rate superstars to wont walk only they should fly..... but the irony is most of these supserstars are pretty down to earth. When one is in contest - he or she is merely a participant. nothing more nothing less. One who thinks no end of himself or herself is the biggest loser in this world.

One who forgets the roots and gets lost in ones new found success, well what can one feel for them besides pity !!!!! Whther be it Sekhar, or Chavi or Gauri, or Twinkle , they just proved with their behavior they are too ordinary - one without humility is no personality at all ,star to uske baad.l..... shame on them !!!
