Citizen Journalist and Its Conversion to Stardom

Just a few months ago Yamini Dhall, a student of Chandigarh's Women's College had hit the headlines and had become the face of the nation, when she was leading a procession of her brethren in college. Her face was talked about as a face that had a future, more so in the sense of having a career in the film industry.

With such a media built it was just logical that somebody from the film industry would lap up this opportunity and give her an opportunity to become a part of the industry. And it did come, when Satish Kaushik came forward and announced that she was going to be the heroine of her next film. Whole of Chandigarh as also Himachal Pradesh was thrilled that somebody after Preity Zinta was going to step into the tinsel world once again. Satish Kaushik had also announced that she would be another Bhumika Chawla and would get the same status as Bhumika Chawla enjoys in the industry. So with all the fan fare Yamini Dhall landed in the industry to begin her career in the industry, a career that was offered to her on the platter. But she foundered and failed miserably as she could not pass the screen test at all, and had to return back to the anonymity of her college days, as she could not pass the muster.

This begs a question whether the citizen journalist, a new tag that is being associated with activism be picked up based on the physical appearance of the individual. And also the fact that the media before making a celebrity out of an individual for its own TRP, should not think twice about going ahead with the same. There was none of the media commandos who had made a celebrity out of Yamini present, after the failure of Yamini to provide solace to her.

It also proves a point that the general public, especially those who come in droves with dreams in their eyes on one count or the other to become a star, should first judge the ground realities, as it is a cruel world out there. It is also expected that the directors of the status of Satish Kaushik who announced with a fanfare that they are going to cast an individual as a star in their next venture, on the eve of the failure of the new comer to do so, should train and hone their skills and then market them as there protégées and discoveries. This is how the things are done in Hollywood. The baby should not be thrown along with the bath water as happened in the case of Yamini and she may have to live with this ignominious exit for quite a long time to come.
