Vishwak Sen’s suicide prank in Jubilee Hills as a part of his Ashoka Vanamlo Arjuna Kalyanam has gone wrong. Some people have taken objection to it and complained about it to Human Rights Commission.
TV9 has conducted a debate on this, objecting to such promotional tactics calling them abetment of suicides and setting wrong examples.
Everything is fine until then. It has invited Vishwak Sen and some other people to the studio and started calling Vishwak Sen names.
It has run captions like Depressed hero and Paagal Sen.
TV9 being a Top News Channel frequently becomes judgemental and targets people and resorts to character assassination. They also expect the victims to suffer in silence because they are so powerful.
But Vishwak Sen decided to call it out.
“You do not have any right to attack me personally. You better mind your tongue and not call me Paagal Sen and Depressed person,” Vishwak Sen said.
Senior anchor Devi Nagavalli who is hosting the debate was shellshocked by the defiance and started shouting at the actor asking him to get out of the studio.
Even though she tries to show attitude, the shock and disbelief in her voice can not be hidden.
The prank is certainly a bad idea. Someone has complained about it to Human Rights Commission. Vishwak Sen should be reprimanded if HRC believes he is wrong.
TV9 or anyone who call says it is wrong but being judgemental and calling him names like Paagal Sen and Depressed Person is certainly not the ethics of the media.
TV9 does that frequently and gets away due to the power of its position. The way the anchor responded after the hero points out is further worse.
