The ball for MTV's Splitsvilla 7, hosted by Sunny Leone, is ready to roll on the idiot box, but in the real world of celebrities - Hollywood or Bollywood - it's been quite a season of splitsville already! Guess it's Love, breakups...it's zindagi.
Almost every now and then, we're caught in the midst of 'stories' with celebrities 'heading to splitsville'. What's the 'entertainment' in someone else's heartbreak? And it's all out and open. Then, we talk of 'private lives'. Do they have one, really? Do they even have the right to one?
Seemingly not, it seemed more so following a recent chat with the Indo-Canadian porn superstar Sunny Leone, who is now creating new waves in Bollywood. "As actors and entertainers, we live a very open book life, and this is the lifestyle we've chosen. No matter how much you try to hide from people, it's going to come out. It's an inevitable thing," said the 'Baby Doll', who is basking in her own fairy tale romance with Daniel Weber.
The words came out from her confidently, but with a 'sorry' sounding tone. That's what it is - a sorry state of affairs - where 'fairy tale' stories of love and romance are perhaps best kept for the celluloid.
Interestingly, Sunny is now the host of MTV Splitsvilla 7. It's a dating reality show, rather a 'hunt for love', where 20 girls will woo and vie for the attention of seven men. People can 'dump' each other, and it's all in good fun really - unless of course, someone finds 'true love'.
The channel official disclosed that as many as 68 million people tuned into the sixth season of the show, and they expect to draw more with the forthcoming season, Splitsvilla 7.
To dear Sunny Leone, it all seems fine. But what when it's publicised via a show? "Ummm...whether it's right to publicise it...well, they're on a show, so they should be okay with its publicity," the Ragini MMS 2 actress said.
Maybe celebrities have become accustomed to having their life out in the open, and even aspiring celebrities as in on Splitsvilla 7, but for most common men and women, love, breakups are emotions about their 'zindagi' and are best kept private. IANS.
