Two-Faced Shilpa Shetty MUST QUIT Super Dancer- And Right Now!

This morning, we woke up to Shilpa Shetty talking about Sony's Super Dancer Season 2 in MiD-DAY, saying, "When a child is given the spotlight too soon, he/she grows up with the perception of being privileged. I don't want Viaan to feel that way."

Shilpa then went on to add, "I try to inculcate values I grew up with because I don't want him (son Vivaan) to grow up with a misguided sense of entitlement."

This clearly suggests that Shilpa feels that shows like Super Dancer involving kids can have an adverse effect on their psyche whereby they might start jumping before having achieved anything in life. 

Shilpa has thus clearly conveyed that she is not very excited to see kids participating in Super Dancer.

Fair enough. Such shows are indeed dangerous and Shilpa's perspective should not be challenged. Recently, the Piku filmmaker Shoojit Sircar said that not only such shows are destroying the kids emotionally and physically but also taking away their innocence from them in early ages. "Humble request to authorities to urgently ban all reality shows involving children. It's actually destroying them emotionally and their purity," he wrote on Twitter. Amol Gupte too has been vocal about his displeasure in the same regard. Fair, and in fact, a great point- but at least these two gentlemen have not been hypocrites.

Assuming that Shilpa believes in what she says- why is she judging and encouraging its participants? Her participation in Super Dancer reeks of double standards, and by doing that, she herself is giving the young participants a false sense of entitlement. Can she absolve herself from that? No, she cannot.

We are not endorsing reality TV shows involving kids and please underline this, but it is clear that Shilpa is backing a product she does not believe in- and her entry as a judge in Super Dancer Season 2 is a case of 'money having done the talking'. Does she have any financial obligations towards Sony or is the pay packet offered by Sony too mouth-watering?

Whatever, Shilpa should make an EXIT from Super Dancer Season 2 rightaway.  

Else, her continuity will reek of double standards. Actually, it's already reeking.

We would be definitely interested to know what's Sony's take on this.
