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 them.
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!
