Karan Aanand: Media and Celebrities can grow together, not apart.

Bollywood is all about glitz, glamour, and setting trends. In India, B-town stars have the country’s largest follower. There will be many people who would be very interested in what their favourite artists do or say, what is talked about. As they see their stars on the screen, again and again, people’s interest in the star’s life increases. They form an attachment to the artist who remains after watching the film. Anything a star says has a huge impact on public opinion and alters it to some extent. We love seeing our dearest Bollywood celebrities so active on different social media platforms. And the media delivers all these things to a common man. Media has a big hand in making an artist a star overnight, that artist becomes someone’s ideal, people follow him. In this way, media is the medium through which an ordinary artist becomes special. In the same way, a media person or agency is also doing its job to reach people to their favourites. The relationship between media and celebrity is like two lines of a track, which go on far and wide. They complement each other.

Bollywood actors have told how media and celebrities are related to each other. Talking about this topic, Bollywood actor Karan Aanand said, “The relationship between the actor and the media is like a husband and wife, everything is good when a new marriage takes place. Slowly things start changing. Similarly, when the actor comes in the beginning, they need media to make him a big star. This is a vise -versa process. And when the actor gradually becomes a big star, then he starts setting his boundaries in which the media is objectified. This is a bit wrong, which should not happen.”

He added, “The sweet squabbles of media and celebrity will continue, as both need each other to move forward. Media acts as a link between an actor and a common man. Both can grow together. Just keep in mind that both of them should live together and do their work diligently within the limits of dignity.”

Karan Aanand: Corona is visible but depression is still suffering

When the epidemic named Corona entered the world, the whole world was shocked. Due to which lockdown was announced in many countries. But as time passed, this fear started to settle in our minds. We started getting worried about the time to come. The worry of the time that came along with the fear of sickness that started haunting us. Later everyone including the common man has started becoming a victim of depression. This is a kind of mental state that can have harsh consequences. If told, there is such a brainstorm that even the person suffering from it does not know. And this disease is treated with love care and affection. 

Bollywood actor Karan Aanand also shared his thoughts about this mental state and said, “Right now there are two types of problems going on in the whole world including our India, which is Corona, and that is visible. But the mental problems going on inside us is not visible and know as depression. The amazing thing is that one who is going through depression; he does not even know that he is mentally ill. But yes, if only his close, relatives and friends take notice of this, then they can understand that something is wrong. Because the changes that occur in depression start to appear, it seems to run the farthest. In present times, it is physically in isolation. But Mentally also goes into isolation.” 

He said, “We have to understand this. Some people delay saying that it is not right to speak in someone’s personal case. But friends, this is not the right time to think about it. You can talk to them without any reason,  just take a call once a day and talk. Do not leave them alone. Follow the duty of your friendship. I will do the same from here onwards and will call my friends unnecessarily and ask them, ‘Are you alright or not, how are you?’ Talk to each other because talking is very important.”
