Aaradhya Bachchan, the daughter of Bollywood power couple Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, has moved the Delhi High Court against a YouTube tabloid for spreading false news about her health. The nine-year-old’s mother, Aishwarya, had tested positive for COVID-19 last year, and the tabloid claimed that Aaradhya had also contracted the virus, which was untrue.
The Bachchan family is one of the most famous in India and is constantly under the media’s spotlight. They are known for being fiercely protective of their privacy, especially when it comes to their children. Aaradhya has often been the subject of media scrutiny, with her every move being reported on extensively. However, the Bachchan family draws the line at false reporting, and they have been known to take legal action against tabloids in the past.
In this instance, the tabloid had claimed that Aaradhya had tested positive for COVID-19 and was admitted to Nanavati Hospital in Mumbai. However, the Bachchan family denied the reports and clarified that Aaradhya was healthy and had not contracted the virus. The false reporting caused a lot of distress to the family, and they decided to take legal action against the tabloid.
The Bachchan family’s lawyer, argued in court that the false reporting had caused mental anguish to the family and had also affected Aaradhya’s reputation. He stated that the tabloid had no right to report on Aaradhya’s health without proper verification of the facts. The court agreed with the Bachchan family and ordered the tabloid to take down the false reports and issue an apology.
This incident highlights the need for responsible journalism in the age of social media. With the rise of citizen journalism and online tabloids, false reporting has become a major issue. Tabloids often publish sensational news without verifying the facts, which can cause a lot of harm to individuals and their families. In this case, the false reporting had caused mental anguish to the Bachchan family, and they had to take legal action to protect their reputation.
The Bachchan family has always been very private about their personal life, and they have often spoken out against media intrusion. They believe that their children should be allowed to grow up away from the public eye and should not be subject to media scrutiny. However, with the rise of social media, it has become increasingly difficult to maintain privacy. The Bachchan family’s decision to take legal action against the tabloid sends a strong message to other media outlets that they will not tolerate false reporting.
False reporting can cause a lot of harm to individuals and their families, and media outlets must verify the facts before publishing news. The Bachchan family’s decision to take legal action against the tabloid sends a strong message to other media outlets that they will not tolerate false reporting. It also reinforces the need for privacy and protection of children’s rights in the age of social media.
