We are back with another Open post on OSOP. In case you don’t know, Open posts are for everyone to put in their views by commenting their opinions on a particular topic. Today’s topic is what should Bollywood people stop doing or try to do or even think of doing in 2018. The reason we are posting with this is because it’s annoying to see things that shouldn’t be seen or heard. It’s been done over many times and it’s about time that these celebrities stop this trend.
BOLLYWOOD, it’s time to STOP THESE TRENDS
So, this is what triggered this post today:
OPEN LETTERS AND NOTES
Let’s just be clear on this. When you are writing something for someone or you have a message for someone, you tell it to that person not to the whole world and hope that the person gets to hear or read the message you have for them. We are not living in the World War eras, where that was a trend. So, why this trend of publicly sharing something a personal message to everyone even though it’s directed at only one person or two persons. How ridiculous is this?
Karan Johar’s love note (WTF: Just imagine if Woody Allen did something similar!) is not the first nor will it be the last. There are other instances of other Bollywood celebrities or personalities doing the same thing. The last one we can remember was Vikram Bhatt, who for some reason thought to publicly write a letter to his daughter.
If Bollywood people want to share something publicly, they should start by sharing gossips or even tips for outsiders on how to make it in Bollywood. If they want to tell someone something, then address it to that person alone. In today’s time with the presence of modern technology, why so much drama if you want to tell someone something? Just freaking call them up or message them or do like Kangana Ranaut would do: email them!
Here are other trends that Bollywood should stop in 2018:
Calling photographers to the airport to catch celebrities going and coming
Unless these celebs are going to space, don’t bother!
Star kids pretending to go to the gym to exercise
The irony is that every one of these star kids has a gym at their building and yet, they get ‘photographed’ going to the gym. The question is, WHY? Who the freaking hell enjoys looking at pictures of people going to the gym? It’s a wonder why celebrities are clicked going and coming out the gym, but now the craze has moved on to star kids. Like, WTH!
Pictures of star kids
Stop asking young girls and boys posing for the cameras because when they are hounded by these very same cameras, they don’t know where to turn or what to do. It’s like a deer caught in headlights.
Celebrities Sharing pictures of their kids
Bollywood people should stop sharing pictures of their young children and leave them alone. There was a time when Hrithik Roshan never bothered to share pictures of his kids and so did his wife. The minute they got divorced, it became like a competition to see who spends more time with their kids or who has more fun with the kids. It’s not right because they are exposing these children to the whole world and we all know that it’s a big bad world out there. Bollywood people should leave their kids alone!
Accepting stupid award titles just to fill up their award shelf collection at home
Young Celebrities and their biographies
We are from a generation where it is understood that only people, who have lived life, as in old people, get to write their biography or have their life stories published. These days, we have Bollywood personalities who are releasing their biographies because they have nothing else going on. It has become a trend, something that was very much visible last year.
Biogrpahies should be penned when you have lived an extraordinary life, when you have a story to share, when you have lived a life not like the others, when you have achieved something and would like others to learn from your mistakes and life experiences.
Writing down your memoirs is not enough now, celebrities need to have something hot in it to sell it. Take Karan Johar, who for weeks had the media post snippets from his books; from his fight with SRK and Kajol to other things. Then we have a senseless Nawazuddin Siddiqui, who aside from acting in every single film, had to had his memoir written with a lot of stories that he claimed happened but according to other people in these stories, it didn’t happen. He made his memoir sound like Fifty Shades of Grey with a Gaon character. Such a huge shame that someone like him had to resort to telling lies in his book just to hype it up or to sell it. If you have to make up lies to make your life story sound interesting, you are only fooling yourself, dummy!
Alright, so here’s the platform to you guys. Do share what you think are the trends that Bollywood people should stop practising in 2018.
