Celebrity brawls have a history of catching media’s attention. More and more cases of involvement of celebrities in scuffles and clashes are being reported these days. Several examples come to mind which includes Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) cricketer Virat Kohli who was involved in a controversy following some booing from a section of the crowd at Mumbai’s Wankhede Stadium, Shah Rukh Khan’s arguments with stadium authorities at IPL last year, and most recently actor Ram Charan Teja and his bodyguard’s reported assault of a group of software engineers for not giving way to his Aston Martin on a busy road in Hyderabad.
Regarding these cases, even as several people blame celebrity ego for the incidents, psychologist Mythili M Sharma is of the view that due to the lifestyles that people lead these deays, there is a definitive increase in aggression and a decrease in tolerance among people mainly. Consequently, in most of the cases, both parties are equally to be blamed.
