A popular Hindi newspaper ‘Umar Ujala’ is slammed by actor Arjun Kapoor for its disrespectful comments on his late mother. The title of the news itself is quite insensitive.
This cheap trick played by the newspaper ended up landing it in trouble.
The headlines carried
“Toh isliye Arjun Kapoor ko chod ke chali gayi unki maa.”
Arjun Kapoor is well known for his ‘keeping cool’ and easy going attitude,but this time the statement made by Umar Ujala made him furious. Soon after noticing the headlines, Arjun Kapoor took on to his twitter and criticized the newspaper.
I don’t normally react to what’s written about me but for a man who’s lost his mother I find this headline highly distasteful & insensitive. pic.twitter.com/s3vq9F7PuM

Now, this sort of issues is definitely straining the definition of media. Being a media channel one should always keep in mind about the levels of interference and such idiotic headlines for the sake of ratings and viewers is definitely disgraceful.
The balancing between the celebrities and media must always exist, because both are the key factors that influence people.
