Biting the hand that feeds the oxygen of publicity is a bloodsport among celebrities.
Question: Being an ardent follower of news, how do you view media in today’s times?
Kabir Bedi: Media is the fourth pillar of our society. I have great respect for journalists. I myself want to become a journalist but as destiny would have it, I got busy with films, theatre and television and never had time for journalism. In fact, I believe that the content disseminated through print and electronic media in India is far better than what is shown on foreign channels. I am appreciative of the work they do and the important role they play in society.
