We know that TV stars are hugely popular and some of even are hundred times more popular than the B-rung Bollywood brigade. So, it makes sense for brands to tie up with them. One of the things that are hugely talked about in the TV industry are freebies. Of late, there is a huge increase in the number of TV celebs going for free vacations, spa trips, weekend getaways, they are getting a lot of options to be 'influencers' and enjoying themselves. With brands desperate to tie up or barters, the biggest beneficiary seem to be TV couples who are about to wed. Of late, there is a lot of gossip about how there is a desperate rush to get everything done for free.
This much-in-love TV couple are all set to be married in a month and inside sources say that they are keen to get the entire wedding done for free, right from invites to hospitality. The mission began correctly as they got a leading wedding invite designer on board. They wanted 300 cards in special invite boxes and the maker obliged. It seems he shelled out more Rs 3 lakhs for the same. Now, it is almost understood that a celeb couple does a small promotional video for the maker in lieu of such services. It seems they told him that they could not fly down (all expenses paid) to his home city for the video and he did have to come down instead. By now, the cards were dispatched to family and friends. The card maker who had already spent a bomb did not spending a few thousand more to come down to Mumbai paying for his flight and hotel room. It seems the couple refused to meet him when he came down. This left him rather furious.
Later, the card designer came to know that they were in talks with another designer for the invites. When he confronted them, they said they would not like to associate as the invites got leaked out. When the designer argued that he was not at fault as one of their friends could have shared it with the media, they were in no mood to listen. They told him that they would collaborate with him, only if he agreed on sharing credits with their new sponsorer. It seems the entrepreneur was miffed and told him he was not a beggar to be treated in this fashion. The association for the wedding ended with the couple claiming false news!
