Being a part of showbiz can have its pros and cons. It’s difficult to be under the constant microscope where people dissect every aspect of your life and shower you with scrutiny or criticism.
There are an equal number of people trying to pull you apart as the people who support and enable you. But being a part of the glitz and glamour can sometimes fill your vision and it can be very tiring as well.
However, all this is just a part of what comes along with success and fame. It’s difficult to just weigh out the bad aspects of such a life. Sometimes celebrities have to live a life of pretence, be it for their upcoming projects or just to exude a sense of achievement or accomplishment to the audience.
Here were some examples of situations where celebrities made questionable statements that caught the attention of the audience on Reddit, and not in a good way:

Deepika for instance, says she loves food, and her dietician allows her to eat what she likes but in a very restricted manner (only 2 idlis or only 1 dosa).”
