Last week was a pretty bad week for Sony chief creative director
Sandiip Sickand. On one hand there was the news doing the rounds
that he has been sacked by Sony Television because of poor TRPs and
the falling viewer ship of prime time soaps like 'Kulvaddhu',
'Durgesh Nandini', 'Kaajjal' etc. Also there is a buzz that he has
been directed by the Bombay High Court to vacate his house because
the house he is presently living in, with his mother, is in the
name of his grandmother. His grandmother had approached the court
saying that she has been physically and mentally tortured by
When he was asked to comment on all this, Sandeep got annoyed and said, "The media should mind its own business and not interfere in anybody's personal life. They should do something meaningful which will benefit the society".
And we thought that Sandiip loved publicity. All this while, he has only portrayed his media savvy image. Guess he is media savvy as long as only positive things are written about him!
