Reality bites
Talent hunts, a rage on the small screen, make instant idols and celebrities of the girl or boy next door. But, do these riveting real-life contests, asks Srabanti Chakrabarti, bring real and lasting success to the winners. Or, do they merely provide two minutes of fame that begins and ends with the show.
The saying that there are no shortcuts to success, perhaps, no longer holds true in todayís television world. All you need to attain overnight stardom and fame is a victory in any of the reality shows on Indian television Ė be it Sonyís Indian Idol, Zeeís Sa Re Ga Ma Pa or Starís The Great Indian Laughter Challenge.
