To Monica with Money
Watching Monica Bedi [Link] the former Bollywood actress and ex companion of Abu Salem [Link] on dance shows and ‘Reality’ is disgusting. I fail to understand why persons associated with hardened criminals and anti-national activities should be included in any such shows.
Do producers follow any Code of Conduct?
Sorry producers, making money with Monica is not okay. Remove her at once from your shows.
tho i feel that this girl should b given one more fair chance in life but when i see her on popular shows i too feel disgusted.criminals or people associated with them should not be given a chance where they can mould public opinions…. but then in a country where all criminals are let loose to contest elections and decide important policy matters for all of us it isnt surprising anymore. in fact she may be our MP some-day.
True…I feel equally or more disgusted seeing Rahul mahajan participating, judging and being a STAR in several reality shows…
It is disgusting & demeaning indeed
Is this really happening? Gosh, when’ll the producers start thinking beyond the bucks?
The “reality” is, that , certain attitudes, acceptances of behaviour, and falsehoods become more acceptable because those at the very top indulge. Say, 30-40 years ago, those in power (whatever the field) had more scruples. Today, with fellows fighting elections from jail (after a successful career in most heinous crimes), honesty in politics being thought of as an activity for fools, and quick monetary returns the only consideration, Monica, and her producers are only emulating folks at the top…..
I agree with Suranga, the clean-up needs to begin at the top. Monica and her ilk are only at the fringes of crime, criminal by association rather than by direct action.
Anyway, to look at the bright side, these people do get publicity, but everyone seems to be aware that it is CHEAP publicity. And then, somewhere down the line, they vanish from public consciousness.
I won’t be surprised if the producer was pressurized by the “DON”/ Dawood to give her break….and for all you know she still has underworld links…
Thank you for your visit on my blog and your nice comment… You make me smile!!
Thanks Jyotsana, naperville mom, SGD, ugich konitari, sucharita, anonymous and Femin Susan.
Hi. I understand what you have mentioned in the post, but considering the fact that Monica herself was never directly associated in any crime, isn’t “disgusting” too harsh a thing to say about a female who definitely deserves a second go at life.. We all make several mistakes during the years, and sometimes the mistake being blackhole just keep sucking an individual…
I appreciate your words and do feel that its not at all a bad idea to let her deserve a normal life.. and for her television maybe is one last medium to change the attitude of the masses..
The fact is that people watch these shows. The producers are just going by the viewer rating… whatever the public wants and whatever brings in the cash!
If we are disgusted about it, we need to stop watching!
What can you say in a country where a scam artiste like Azharuddin is running for elections!
Mediocrity happens over a period of time and thereafter becomes acceptable.
