'I Have Breasts AND A cleavage! You Got A Problem!!??': Deepika Padukone

mxmindia.com has published an email by Kingshuk Nag, Resident Editor of The Times of India in Hyderabad, on l'affaire Deepika Padukone: SOS! Editor Kingshuk Nag laments decay in values at The Times of India

For the last few days I have been disturbed a lot. This followed the by now widely publicized row that Bombay Times has had with Deepika Padukone. Our ‘vagina and tits’ reference in a story carried in the supplement has lot a drawn of adverse reference in even international media. I feel shamed and humiliated by the comments being freely passed about us including in competing publications.

For me the worst nightmare would be if someone went to the Supreme Court with a PIL seeking printing of a statutory warning on the masthead of the paper. The warning is that “some of the news carried in this paper is paid for.” This would be a statutory warning like that carried on cigarette packets: “Smoking cigarettes is injurious to your health.” Somebody could also file a PIL asking for a definition of what a newspaper is.

This is not an implausible scenario considering that the supplements carried along with the TOI main paper have provisions for medianet. These supplements – though they have their own editors and imprint lines – are distributed along with the main paper. Of course, we carry on the masthead a line called advertorial, entertainment promotion feature, as a safeguard. But can a court not go beyond this?
