Paparazzi giving celebrities some pics for airports diaries and OTTDs have become insanely common. Every time a popular face from showbiz is spotted strolling on the streets or at the airport, they are clicked endlessly by photojournalists. The paparazzi are often slammed for invading the private space of these celebrities. However, filmmaker Rohit Shetty has a different take on it. Recently, speaking to a portal, Shetty took a subtle jibe at these celebs. 

Talking about the ‘trend’ of celebrities being spotted outside temples and clicked while making donations, he said, “Kaun karta hai aisa? Phone karenge tabhi maalum padega na, photographer ko, ki ‘bhai, main aaj yeh mandir ke bahar hai’. Kaise maalum padega.” He was speaking on the show Social Media Star With Janice.

Further, when asked about airport looks, Rohit added, “Ab uska kharcha alag ho gaya hai. Varna jab tak yeh photographers wahaan pohoche nahi the ya log bolte nahi the ki main utar raha hoon plane se, tab tak toh sab chaddi-banyan mein hi jaa rahe the.”

Here’s a glimpse from the show:
