India: Media And Shahrukh Khan's Detention

Did the Indian media overreact on the news of Bollywood Actor Shahrukh Khan's detention in the US? Harini Calamur at POV opines: “I wonder how much airtime was spent on this – and to the exclusion of what? [..] On the day Shahrukh Khan got detained for two hours [..] 21 farmers committed suicide in Andhra Pradesh because they couldn’t pay off their debt. But, farmers committing suicide cannot be sponsored, it does not drive up TRP’s.”
