Social media has empowered celebrities



Bollywood veteran Raveena Tandon thinks that social media has the capacity to give power to celebrities when the rumor mill is going in opposition to them. The actress lately wrote a blog as a guest author for a newspaper.

She marked that “In this day and age, it is much easier to reach out and present your own case. Social media has its pros and cons, but it makes it easier to put out the other side of the story,” she further added “Earlier, one could rant and rave, crying oneself hoarse about the falsehood of whatever they had put out there. But once a scandalous headline was out, that was it. There were few takers for any clarification.”


Raveena as well praised Bollywood ‘Queen’ Kangana Ranaut for taking a step to struggle for her account of the reality. But her opinions were misunderstood with numerous asserting that she is supporting Kangana in her legal clash with Bollywood actor Hrithik Roshan. Pursuing this, the star from Mohra was also being inquired regarding her position as of which she at last took to Twitter to reveal that she is not taking any support.

Raveena highlighted that she is not performing as a judge in the issue amid two individuals. She wrote that “To all those who are giving out judgments, please read that I have not judged who is right or wrong. I clearly state that I support a person’s right to fight back with what she thinks is her version of truth.”

The 41-year-old former model and producer stated that “Not taking anyone particular side. Anyone who is a victim of falsehood, can now present their own case — boy or girl.”

The hullabaloo amid Kangana and Hrithik, who were rumored to have been dating in the past, has taken a hideous twist with both of them giving official notices to one other.
