The TV actors, on the other hand dwell around the cheaper Andheri and Goregaon areas. That is where the difference in their lifestyles end as these small screen actors are now living their lives king and queen size! The wage difference is being slowly minimized with the actors from the small screen demanding higher wages as their roles become substantially important.

  1. I thought Indians ware little bit more civilized than this. As human beings all we need is to understand each other. Be it English or Hindi understanding each other is all we need to communicate. Let’s also not forget that Indian movie industry is more of an international stage now with fans all over the world therefore don’t disregard any language

      • *A lion will tell a dog, “a dog” not a lion.
        *A cristian will tell Muslims Non-Cristian .
        *A hindu will label a Christian and Muslim as Non-Hindu.

        Similarly why we can’t say others as Non-Muslims…. Why,what is wrong in it.

        If someone is doing kufr(submitting ones will to other not to one and only God) then why one can’t say him Kafir(infidel)…..
        U r worshipping more than one God,u r worshipping the pictures,the idols….then why we can’t say u as Kafir… What’s wrong in it…. By definition u r kafir….
        If I say u as Kafir that doesn’t mean we hate u…. It’s ur perception…

        • Are you thakedars of God ? Every faith has its own way of realising God . He has produced every one equal to other . All come naked , all go naked . He has not produced special chachas or mamas to look after His interests . He doesn’t stop air , water , light etc to an atheist or so called kafir . He has not given special powers to His gondas to take to task who don’t have faith in Him . Shame on such ideology .

      • The word Kaafir means non believer, those who don’t follow Islam are called Kaffirs (non believer) it’s not a bad word, nothing to feel offensive about it bro.

  2. Are you nuts? The guy talking about using Hindi. Wait. I am a south Indian this is my fathers land. We have our language. We been here for millions of years. Don’t try to boss around. We can part ways if I have to carry your fathers language. Is your father going to save my language. Enough.

    • If you not speaking your language then who will? we already killed Sanskrit now we have to speak and learn our languages.

    • Don’t be angry yaar, Just chill down!
      One can’t force other to owe him other culture…. U r from Deccan, there there is different cultures, be happy and live as per ur culture… Who r forcing u to speak in Hindi and u can’t speak too.
      Speak Telugu, kannad, Malayalam, et cetera.
      What’s wrong in speaking or owing ones culture… Enrich ur culture… Nobody here is forcing u…

  3. Howmany of these actors/actresses helped to the poor people. It is there hard earning ofcourse and they are the boss of their money. But look after the poor people and how you can help them.

  4. So many religious people !!!! Can anyone tell me why no religion could ever say that The Earth Moves Around The Sun? Allah, God or Bhagban missed it? Wow !!

  5. It the Hindus only who say “serve bhavantu sukhina” and “sarv dharam sambhav” and followers of no other religions say like that. Follow your religion but don’t hate other’s. If you say anybody kafit, he can also say you kafit. What is wrong in that calling. So think before you speak.
