By now, I think everyone is aware of the controversy surrounding Deppika Padukone’s Cleavage (Gosh no matter what way you write about it… it looks dirty) 😛
Still, for those who don’t know… poor innocent souls…. devoid of any drama in their lives…. here are the details.
You know how this Media is. It can make you and it can break you. It will respect you and it will also disgust you. Same happen with Depika Padukone, our very own, top Indian Film actress, when TOI Entertainment did this to her.
Yup! It’s a very awkward angle for a photograph and to top it all, writing something like “OMG: Deepika Padukone‘s Cleavage Show”, no that’s just too much gross. Obviously it disgusted our very own topmost Bollywood Actress, Deepika, who also replied in her tweets, “YES!I am a Woman.I have breasts AND a cleavage! You got a problem!!??” Well said, dear.
Coming to TOI, yes, this is a new low, even for you. It was unnecessary and disgraceful. More importantly, she was on a public platform, promoting her film, and was wearing a damn Saaree, very gracefully. If you or your cameraman will go over the way, this time actually too much over her, to get a top angle so you can catch a glimpse of her cleavage…. Boss, you are pathetic. 😦
You made the matter worse, when you actually make it quite prominent for everybody to look out for her cleavage in these pics, by stating out loud terms like ‘OMG’ and ‘Cleavage Show’. When I saw those pics, I didn’t actually find it offending as there was nothing new, which we have not seen (yes, I am a pervert, and I saw that pic) 😐 Deepika has shown much more in her films and photo-shoots, but the moment you write it as ‘Cleavage Show’, you lost all the credibility. Note to TOI – even if you somehow got an awkward looking picture of a celebrity (Actually exposing some things, not to be exposed), please, do not use derogatory language too. Infact, do not post such pics. Grow Up!!!!
Coming to Deepika – Bravo girl for speaking out and taking a stand. You did the right thing. We as woman should never take it lightly when it comes to maintaining respect and dignity. Not only woman, but actually all the species.
My only question to you – Do you remember these following words, “If I am a public figure and if someone has captured me then I feel I should have been a little careful.” ???
Remember the time when media clicked pics of Katrina Kaif, in bikini, while she was holidaying on a private beach in Spain, with her boyfriend/close friend. Yes, the same time, you said, that celebrities are public figures and they should not cry out foul everytime someone click their pictures. 😛
- Why clicking a picture of Katrina in bikini is okay, while yours in a Saaree is not?
- Why clicking a picture of Katrina on a private trip is okay, while yours on a public platform not?
- Why clicking a picture of Katrina when she is with her boyfriend in her own personal space is okay, while yours when you are promoting your film with media present in full gloom, is not?
- Why clicking a picture of Katrina when she is not aware of any cameraman is okay, while yours when you are fully aware of that your pics are taken, is not?
Your’s cleavage is a cleavage, and Katrina has what, a Taj Mahal there, for everyone to take pic of? 😡
My stand, it was gross and disgraceful for the media to highlight a woman’s (not necessarily Deepika’s or any celebrity’s) cleavage, or any private part. It’s not good journalism, or an appropriate news.
Some are saying, why we can drool over Shahrukh’s abs and not on Deepika’s cleavage? Simple dearie, Shahrukh’s abs is not his private body part (I am not saying it’s public though) 😛 try to focus your camera on his groin. Let’s see how much he appreciates that? Also, remember the hue and cry everyone made on Aamir Khan’s suggestive poster of his upcoming film PK. I loved it BTW. ❤ I love Aamir, clothes or no clothes. 😉
