You realize that there is a problem when we tend to call a movie actor, a ‘HERO’ and actress – a ‘HEROINE’, completely ignoring the fact that everything they have achieved in their life is by pretending to be someone they are not. Sadly, our young generation tends to idolize these men and women (sometimes blindly) for doing nothing close to being a HERO!
Neither they use their influence over masses for bringing any ‘REAL CHANGE’ or take initiative to save the lives of vulnerable and destitute. What they rather do is to either get away from substance abuse, road rages, killing wilds, bomb conspiracy or even punching their girlfriends.
How and why we label them as HERO? Don’t our army men, policemen, and doctors deserve to be called HEROES? They save lives even after risking their own lives.
No one would deny that the most overrated job is being an actor in India and the most under-rated job is being an ‘actual’ HERO.
So, while our Real HEROES struggle to make ends meet, these fake heroes earn loads of money, lead a lavish lifestyle, resulting in many blind followers (read mob again), resulting in more irresponsible actions.
But in order to set the record right, Bollywood actor Paresh Rawal took to Twitter to convey a very strong message.
In his recent tweet, the 65-year-old actor on Tuesday posted a heartfelt message for the Indian Armed Force and Police Force, that touched the hearts of many.
In his message, the Padma Shri recipient proposed that we should start calling actors as ‘entertainers’ and not ‘heroes’. He firmly stated that it is important for the next generation to know the actual meaning of a ‘hero’. He added that ‘HERO’ title needs to be reserved for the police force and soldiers who stand tall and firm despite the danger and hardships they face to protect the motherland.
“We Should Start Calling Actors As ‘Entertainers’ And Our Army & Police As ‘Heroes’ for Our Next Generation To Know The Actual Meaning Of Real Heroes !!!
Many netizens came forward to applaud and support him for his thoughts:
At IFORHER, we couldn’t agree more with Paresh Rawal. To make our society progressive, it is more important than ever to give our young generation better role models – the ones, who risk their lives to save others!
