    Well-known people such as films and sports personalities, nowadays, tend to speak their minds on public matters or things which are unrelated to their profession. In my opinion, this is a negative development because celebrities typically do not have relevant information on political matters and they should refrain from commenting on public affairs unless well versed on such subjects.

    Unwise opinions can have a negative influence on people. In contemporary times, news spread like wildfire and any injudicious comment or action by celebrities can cause a negative impact on the mainstream audience. Recently, there is an increase in controversies which are caused not just by differences in opinions but more by limited knowledge and unmindful views of some film stars.
    It is also seen that some social media influencers share controversial views to attract attention and gain followers. Therefore, it is imperative that this behavior should not be encouraged so that right to freedom of opinion and expression is not misused.

    Some sensitive topics should be left to the experts. People tend to follow TV personalities blindly and get influenced by any positive or negative opinion of theirs’.However, If celebrities educate themselves well before sharing their opinions on a particular political matter, it can encourage their fans to have a mindful opinion. Many surveys show that mainstream audiences have been falling prey to misleading pieces of information shared on social media by famous people. Therefore, expert advice and opinions only should hold relevance.

    In conclusion, It is crucial that celebrities should either stay updated with public affairs to the ground level or should avoid sharing their views if they are not well aware of the subject.

    Now a days a great many film stars / celebrities are giving opinions on the topics unrelated to their profession. Depending on the topic which they handle it can create both positive and negative impact.

    Thinking about the positive aspect ,first i would like to mention the influence these people have on the society. Celebrities and film stars are very well aware about the social issues happening around. Most of them opine about these issues especially through social media without any fear and many of them have even given their full support to fight against these. For example many of them have raised their voices against the generations old dowry system and as a result Government has started anti dowry campaigns and have formulated strict laws against those demanding dowry.

    Secondly, Now a days apart from social issues they even talk about the problems that may effect this planet. IN short, about anything happening under the sky and above. Most of the public figures, for example, De caprio, Bill gates have expressed their concern about causes of natural calamities and the need for quick and effective remedial solutions to these problems. As a result action and plans have been proposed for the same.

    To conclude ,Undoubtedly, the voices and views of the film stars and celebrities on matters other than their profession have a positive effect but at the same time it can also create a negative impact, since some of their ideas and thoughts can stir religious conflicts and sometimes may dishonor the values of our nation.

    Now a days celebutante are considered as one of the most influential people among the society not only for the profession but also for being in lime light gives them the privileges’ to get noticed and be heard , furthermore the usage of social media platforms like Twitter, Instagram and Facebook have given a direct influence towards the public. Recently , celebrities are gaining much more attention in public domain ,either by stipulating controversies which they are unknown or it can also be from the negative hype they create with the fame . In my opinion it is totally unacceptable, and I would like to elaborate on my stand here.

    Firstly, in this modern times the whole world are struck with social media even if ,it is a teenager or an adult or an elderly person, its just a touch away , the whole world will appear on a small screen, these most influential ones might take advantage of this with the help of their glory and fame.

    Secondly, Many of the prominent people among the society at times retorts their remarks on political matters without considering the consequences and the media spokespersons can manipulate it for their own TRP- Television rating point, especially when it comes to secularism or religious conflicts.

    So to summarize, if it is about the information on their own work its wiser to consider them , but if its about the political aspects it surely will create a negative impact on the society.

    In this world, everyone has their own views and opinion over any issue which is either their concern or not. Any issue or opinion there will be support and opposition, where the view of supporter will be wrong for other party or vice versa.

    The views of the film stars and celebrities or mostly people with stardom gets a huge impact on society is basically due to their fame and reach. As discussed earlier, everyone has their own views but when expressed by a person with such popularity it creates an impact on either supporter or adversary. This is basically because they can’t agree with the view of other people. When it comes to public matters sometimes celebrities with least knowledge make opinion which affects the people who really benefit from it. Indeed, they should understand that real life is not same as reel life which may lead to disruption of social calmness.

    In my point of view, I would suggest showing support for public issues which concerns oneself the least should be avoided as it as greater negative impact. When views on public matters by celebrities which least concern should be avoided. For example, if people below poverty line demand for increase in public transport to reduce crowd and chaos whereas a celebrity who opposes this idea as they believe this will have effect on traffic. In precise, too many views or opinions will lead to many ideas and cause a greater confusion.

    I would like to conclude that everyone has a freedom of speech therefore we must use it wisely. Celebrities can give their views but before sharing its better to think wisely that whether their view is for greater good of the society. Every view has both positive and negative impact on society whereas the impact is really subjective to the issue.

    Nowadays,well known personalities often speak up on certain public affairs which are of less concern to them.In my opinion,these interferences by the famous people have far more positive impacts than the negative ones.

    First of all,the commoners are pretty much influenced by the famed figures.Hence,this influence can be used to spread awareness or in any other positive way whenever required.For instance,movie stars such as Tom Cruise,Aamir Khan etc have large fan following.Moreover, their fans not only avidly notice their lifestyle but also try to inculcate it in themselves.So,if such people hinder public topics such as health and fitness or gender equality,they can surely make a difference. However,some people argue that these famous people often don’t have good knowledge of the topic,but it is rare that they convey any wrong message,as they are humans too and they know such things can affect their image.

    Secondly,the sway of the people with stardom can be used to enhance a country’s economy as they are not exclusively loved by citizens of their motherland,they have admirers in foreign countries as well.Hence, when they advertise any product or service then as an outcome both the national and international fans try to avail them,which would ultimately benefit the economy of the country.For example, the products of the skin care and beauty brand Lakme,which is owned by an Indian company are in high demand in the international market nowadays.The fact that many world wide famous indian actresses like Katrina Caif,Kareena Kapoor,Shraddha Kapoor etc have endorsed this brand has definitely helped it to reach the position where it is presently.

    In conclusion,I stronlgly believe that it is a positive development.In addition,I would like to suggest that India has certain internationally recognised faces whose power can be used to promote so many Indian products.

Congratulations!
