On Thursday after Judgemental Hai Kya writer Kanika Dhillon and director Prakash Kovelamudi announced their separation gracefully, some portals desperate for eyeballs, decided to club this separation with the other separation of actress Dia Mirza and director Sahil Singha by insinuating a relationship between Kanika and Sangha.
This is worst example of speculative journalism one has encountered in recent times. Not only does it demonstrate an utter disregard for facts(Kanika hasn’t even met Dia or Sahil Sangha) it also shows the complete absence of sensitivity at a time when two couples are going through a rough time.
As Dia Mirza rightly said to me, “I wonder if these people have a family and loved one’s at home.”
Prakash Kovelamudi says, “It’s true that Kanika and I had separated two years back and have continued to remain as good friends and also worked together. I’m appalled at the manner in which a section of the media is making up rumours about our separation. I wish they could be more responsible, in how they report news. I’m glad that you have messaged me for clarification.”.
When I asked why Prakash and Kanika waited for two years to announce their separation Prakash said, “It’s a personal matter and I wouldn’t like to comment on this. The important thing is that we are now good friends and would continue to work together as we did earlier.”
