Tamannaah slams media for misreporting her
She may be one of the top actresses in the south, but Tamannaah is furious with the way the media has misreported her in recent times. The actress, who will next be seen in the Telugu remake of Kangana Ranaut-starrer 'Queen', said that she's exasperated with false reports and baseless speculation about her in the media. "They say ignorance is bliss but I find yours rather disturbing. I often wonder why scribes don't do their homework well before publishing articles. Isn't it fair to validate information and reach out to the artiste in question before publishing it or is imprecise sensationalism the new buzz word?" Tamannaah asked in a statement that she shared on social media.
The 'Baahubali' star, who was last seen in the 2018 film 'Naa Nuvve', urged scribes to come forward and seek her perspective before publishing a news report about her.
"The next time you'd like to publish something about me, please be responsible enough and reach out to me for my perspective. Don't misquote me with interviews I never gave or quote interview excerpts out of context, just for the trp! Yellow journalism needs to stop," she added.
