Coronavirus pandemic across the world made a powerful impact on all sectors and people in all professions. Virtual lockdown by various countries and also India brought everything to a grounded halt.
Coming to the film industry all shootings got stalled and there was virtually no work on the ground. Under these circumstances, print, electronic and webmedia is struggling to find genuine and confirmed news.
So to have updates, few are coming with silly rumours involving top stars of Tollywood, Bollywood actresses etc. When one website publishes that Mahesh Babu set to romance Sara Ali Khan, Pawan Kalyan romancing Jacqueline Fernandez, Prabhas romancing Deepika Padukone or Priyanka Chopra, Vijay Deverakonda, Ram Charan or NTR romancing Janhvi Kapoor or they have rejected these stars, or rift in the mega family, Allu family, Akkineni family, others without verifying the facts blindly recreating the same content.
These become viral on social media and before it reaches the celebrities and they come with clarification, those who published get their viewers and clicks. Almost all the print, web media and electronic media are following similar tactics and when those who boast they publish only confirmed news, others follow suit blindly. It seems there is no end to silly rumors and blind followers.
