In the age of social media, it’s important to be seen
Paparazzi culture is something that makes its presence felt every day. We open Facebook, and there’s a barrage of celebrity photos, we open Twitter, and there’s a deluge of celebrity photos, and we open Instagram, and the flood of celebrity photos hits through the roof. Celebrities get caught every time they step out of their homes. It’s like a daily routine of being clicked outside your own home, then hitting the gym, then maybe on a night out, and best of all, at the airport.
Satyajeet Dubey talks about this trend. Having started his career around the same time this social media boom started in India, the handsome actor has managed to become one of the most sought after names in showbiz today. After doing many movies, his popularity skyrocketed during the pandemic when his show “Mumbai Diaries” was released on Amazon Prime Video. The show catapulted him to instant stardom, and his life hasn’t been the same since. He’s worked on back-to-back projects, and when the movie or show is a hit or a flop, he’s praised for every character he portrays onscreen.
Although there is a good aspect of paparazzi having your photos or videos posted everywhere, but there is also a bad aspect because you end up losing all your privacy. Recently, a video of Jaya Bachchan has gone viral everywhere. Apparently, she wasn’t happy with the paparazzi at the event and she started asking them why they were there. She’s not the only one as many celebrities have at times felt uncomfortable being clicked by the triggers. But isn’t that the price to pay for being a celebrity?
Speaking about who is right and who is wrong, Satyajeet Dubey says, “In my opinion, it’s a two-way street because despite being celebrities, they also have their personal space and that needs to be respected. . Boundaries should be clear and there should be mutual respect between each other. I believe dads and celebrities need each other and when they click pictures from a safe distance, it should be fine.
Has he ever been faced with such a situation, especially after the huge success of “Mumbai Diaries”? “Personally, I haven’t been in a place where it has bothered me so far,” adds Satyajeet Dubey.
Another funny thing that happens is how many times celebrities react surprised when they see photographers, despite knowing full well that their own PR team sent them the details of the event. This begs the question, does always being seen and being in the news translate to getting more work? “I think in the age of social media and digital media it is important to be seen. However, I completely disagree with those who invite the media and then act disturbed by their presence and so you have to find There is no need to call the media everywhere as it can be exhausting and over the top,” concludes Satyajeet Dubey.
The actor was recently seen in ‘Aye Zindagi’ which received very good reviews.
