It has been an age old argument about how the media often turns into a distraction on the sets and actors find it difficult to shoot. While the media constantly blame the actors, the latter blame the former, and it is an unending argument. Actors like Sanjeeda Sheikh, Rajat Tokas, and many others have been in the news for throwing tantrums on the sets, however, they do have a point to make. And more recently, Kasautii Zindagii Kay actor Parth Samthaan revealed how the media presence on the sets is a problem for him.
Parth, while talking to a news portal said how he respects the media and loves to give an interview but their presence on the sets while he is shooting turns out to be a distraction and he tends to lose his focus. He also said further, how he is an artist and a dedicated one. He added that he prefers no disturbances during his scenes and the interviews can always be done post the shoot is done. A reporter present at the sets, while this happened, stated how they went there only because they were permitted to and it is their job to bridge this gap between the actors and the viewers.
While both, the reporter and the actor make for a fair point, there needs to be a remedy to this because simply putting the blame on each other is not going to lead to any result.
