Ticked off with paparazzi clicks

Actress Ramya recently filed a complaint against two photographers for taking her pictures in a distasteful manner on a film set. Ramya insists that she is going to fight on behalf of all the heroines who are put through such uncomfortable situations. We ask Bollywood actresses if they also think that paparazzi at times cross the line.
“Photographers at times do cross the line. I am not saying all but some really put you in situations that might leave you feeling upset for days. Such incidents make it impossible for a celebrity to enjoy the attention. We always have to be on our guard,” says Priyanka Bose, who was recently seen in Gangor and will now be seen in Madhuri Dixit and Juhi Chawla starrer Gulab Gang.
Priyanka believes that there should be some guidelines for paparazzi. Talking about her incident Ramya says in an interview, “The pictures were clicked without my permission and circulated among mediapersons. I am going to fight on behalf of all the actresses. I am hoping things will change after this.”
And it seems Ramya has other actresses by her side. Hazel Keech, who was last seen playing Kareena Kapoor’s friend in Salman Khan starrer Bodyguard, says she has also experienced such unpleasant incidents. “In the past I have experienced photographers from the press taking very low angled pictures. I think there should be some respect for the person whose photographs they are taking. I think being in the public eye should be respected a little more,” she says.
People are always keen to know what celebrities are up to and with camera phones everyone is turning into paparazzi without knowing where to draw the line, believes the actress.
However, actress Ragini Khanna says that constant media glare is the price one has to pay for being in this profession. “Thankfully, I never had to face such a situation, however, this has happened to many of my friends. And being in the limelight you cannot do much to avoid it. Once such a picture is out in the print, the damage is done,” she says.
Ragini adds, “It can only change with a sense of responsibility. Both paparazzi and the industry need to work together and learn where to draw the line.”

I want to begin with a little story that was told to me by a leading executive at Aptech. He was exercising in a gym with a lot of younger people.

Shekhar Kapur’s Bandit Queen didn’t make the cut. Neither did Shaji Karun’s Piravi, which bagged 31 international awards.
