Neil Bhoopalam on paparazzi culture

In an exclusive conversation with OTTplay, Neil Bhoopalam shared his take on the paparazzi culture, wherein paps turn up to photograph celebrities in public. The actor mentioned, "We are all in the media and we do the same thing in different departments. I think there needs to be some moral check that people need to have."

Neil further cited the example of Princess Diana's death and added, "The mere fact that Princess Diana died because she was trying to escape the paps and everything... when it intrudes your life to such a great extent, it is very harmful and damaging — just so that someone can get a shot and sell a photograph for that much more."

Summing up his take on this topic, the actor stated, "I am sure there's a mindful way. By all means, carry on (with) the job that you're doing, (but) thoda bohot you need to draw a line somewhere. That cannot be taught, it needs to come from within."
