Trending Debate: Aishwarya's weight gain
Participate and voice your opinion in the debates about latest trending topics of society and internet.

New Delhi: Celebrities are always under scanner for their behaviour in public. There are celebrities who are better known for their public conducts than their actual businesses. The situation becomes complex when the common mass starts to make ideals out of the celebrities. Everything from their dressing sense to their weight needs to be prim and proper.

The emergence of new media has given the people a space to express their feelings about anything and everything under the sun, and celebs form a part of this universe. The ardent and loyal fans (read staunch supporters) find it their justified right to talk about their favourites on social networking sites. The divide of public and personal becomes very thin in such situations.

Aishwarya Rai is the latest public figure to fall victim to this 'perfection syndrome'. The internet become abuzz with posts about Rai's shape and weight the moment her post delivery photos appeared in public domain. However, the views were clearly divided in their tone. People were supporting as well as opposing Aishwarya Rai for her weight even after five months of her delivery.

IBNLive decided to give the voices both in favour and against of Aishwarya's weight gain a platform to debate out the question," how personal is a celebrity's life?"

Aishwarya, who constantly figured in world's most beautiful women, is expected to hold her position for some more years by her fans, and thus her weight gain could be a disappointment. On the other hand, doesn't she have all the rights on her body, and how can anyone else decide whether Aishwarya should gain weight or not.
