After a successful innings in film industry and a happy marriage with Abhishek Bachchan, Aishwarya is set for another phase of her life- motherhood. The pretty star will soon be a mommy this month. Family is harassed due to interference of the media.
After some leading news organisations (Mid Day and TOI) reported that Amitabh Bachchan has requested Information and Broadcasting (I&B) ministry to issue guidelines to Media regarding the coverage of Aishwarya’s delivery, Big B on his Twitter page slammed these reports calling them ridiculous, malicious and completely false allegations.”
While Amitabh Bachchan in his tweets has expressed ignorance about these rules, it is believed that one of his blog postings of a few days ago forced this rethink in the broadcast media. In his November 1 blog post, Bachchan wrote: “The entire day and afternoon has been spent in laughing among ourselves and ROTF (Rolling On the Floor) on the ridiculous time and attention being given in the electronic media on the birthday of Aishwarya…all of which is completely and entirely made up.”
A document, purportedly from the Broadcast Editors’ Association, was being circulated with guidelines for coverage of the birth of Baby B.Following guidelines were issued:
No pre-coverage of the event
Story of birth of the baby to be run only after, and on basis of, official announcement
Story not to run on breaking news band
No camera or OB vans at hospital or any other location related to the story
Go for photo-op or press conference if invited
Not carry any MMS or photo of the child
No astrology show to be done on this issue
No 11.11.11 astro show to be done
The duration of story to be around a minute/ninety seconds
Unauthorised entry into hospital not permitted
But fans, take heart, as you would get a minute by minute report from electronic and all other media about India’s most awaited baby! In the end, all I would like to say and suggest to all those extra curious fans that please let these high profile family enjoy this happy day and please don’t harass them.After all they are humans like us.
