making celebrity for only 3 months
It took about 10 solid years for Shahrukh Khan to become celebrity. There about thousands of struggling actors in Indian film industry waiting for their first break.
But it wasn’t that difficult for the contestants of reality shows to become a celebrity. It just took 3 months to create a celebrity, grasp votes, make money and just vanish.
Yes, we are talking about TV shows creating common man a celebrity for 3 months, giving him fame and love by the audience.
Today it is no big to be a celebrity because today TV channels are considered to be gods of making celebrity. The idea and procedure is simple. Start a reality show, ask the audience to choose their favorite contestant and a celebrity is born.
With more simplicity such celebrities loose their importance as soon as the show is off the air. Where are the promises which the organizers made, telling that they will give an ultimate singer, dancer and will create history.
It is all pushed down the drain once the profit is made and enough money is divided among each partner.
