Arnab Goswami Renews Attack On Bollywood, “He isn’t entirely wrong”

Back from his  incarceration  news-anchor Arnab Goswami has renewed  his attack on Bollywoodand  its actors. Calling out Arjun Rampal for being summoned by the Narcotics Control Bureau,Arnab ,looking lean and nursing a sore throat , again raised the  bogey of  Bollywood’s “drug mafia” in his  newshour coverage on Saturday.

Arnab also drew attention to the fact that Arjun  “liked”  doing films about gangsters. He probably meant  Daddy, a bio-pic on  Arun Gawli, although I  can’t see how playing a gangster can  be held against an actor.

This, heedless  of the  Delhi court ‘s  order  last  week restraining Arnab’s Republic TV and Times Now from  broadcasting scurrilous  opinion on  the  Hindi film industry.Apparently  Arnab has emerged  from his   imprisonment  more determined than ever  to  speak what he considers  to be the truth regardless  of  the  repercussions. Bollywood, it seems, won’t be  spared.

 In all  fairness  it must be said in Arnab Goswami’s defence that his  ongoing tirade against  the Hindi  movie industry to cleanse  its backyard is not invalid. 

A major  filmmaker who has stayed away from petitioning the court to restrain defamatory  content on news channels,  says Arnab is not  entirely wrong. “He is  loud and aggressive . But he’s also on some level right. Recently an actor was sacked  for sexual misconduct.The  producers should have taken a  long hard look at  some of  the  powerful people  involved  with his project before making an example  of  a powerless  actor.”
