Tollywood’s Indifference to Bigg Boss Runner Up

Tollywood's Indifference to Bigg Boss Runner Up

Aadarsh Balakrishna, the runner-up of reality TV show Bigg Boss Telugu 1 took to Twitter and had shared a sad story of the film industry’s indifference towards him in this pandemic when his entire family got tested positive for COVID-19.

“The whole family tested +ve for Covid a few days ago. Parents in hospital. Informed my film crew about the same. Was replaced in a jiffy without any intimation whatsoever. The insecurities an actor lives through are beyond measure. But hey, such is life. #COVID19India #covidlesssons,” he tweeted.

This is going to be the case with small and mid-level actors but it can lead to a dangerous trend of actors hiding their COVID positive results and attending the shoots only to become superspreaders. The Telugu film industry should learn a thing or two about being sensitive in such difficult times.
