ASHA CHOWDARY, DNA, BANGALORE: What do celebrities feel about people who are crazy about them and want to be like them?
DALE: We are living in a society where idolizing and adulation are part and parcel of our daily lifestyles. Even our media is so celeb-driven that they constantly want to sneak even into the personal lives of stars. Don’t be surprised, but many actors too want it to be this way. It kind of endorses their popularity. So they feed the media with gossip which satisfies their needs, wants and publicity ambitions. Most of the bigger stars don’t succumb to this, but the smaller ones do. It’s a world with ‘you scratch my back, I scratch yours’ attitude and most celebs and so-called celebs can’t help living in it and doing whatever it takes to survive.
