Sorry Paparazzi, You Worked Hard But #DeepVeer’s Inner Circle Won 

The inner circle of #deepveer has the privilege of keeping things confidential...and that is a lot of power.

Grainy pictures from those with proximity trumped professional entertainment journos.

The privilege of proximity to Deepika and Ranveer, our beautiful power couple, put hard working paparazzi in the shadows. It is no longer worth it to spend hours waiting out side a foreign venue to capture your golden photograph, when those closest to the couple in the inner circle of privilege – stylists, photographers, the ones with the pictures to ( not) leak – are the ones holding all the chips.

Hard-working entertainment journalism bowed before the concentric circles of privilege who leak a slow trickle of precious snapshots one by one and in jagged unpredictable (in)frequency.

Take the the styling team posing with the godly duo whose multi lakh looks they curated, draped and then had the exciting task of holding secret, until flags turned from red to green.

Or the ‘’drivers and bodyguards’’ dressed in cream coloured Como-chic clothes, lucky enough to be so close to the couple that they felt ‘invited to participate’’.

Or the “ I was so happy to be a tiny part of it” designated draper. She did not leak a picture but made sure everyone knew that she was a part of it and I assume she was...

Being a tiny part of it is still huge.

As someone watching out with eyes peeled for verified pictures hoping they come during somewhat office hours, my heart goes out the hard working entertainment journo fraternity tracking this blockbuster shaadi.
