Bollywood actress Preity Zinta, who is upset with the media intrusion on her visit to Shirdi, today said that every celebrity does not go to the temple for publicity.
"Not every celebrity goes to a temple for Tamasha (publicity). Some genuinely go to pray and to disturb them is bad karma," Preity said on micro-blogging site Twitter.
"I wonder why temples have become so commercial. Why a temple trustee’s urge to be photographed with a celebrity is entertained by the media," she said.
The 36-year-old actress went to Shirdi yesterday and is miffed with media for "pushing" her around.
"Went to Shirdi yesterday and came back with memories of media pushing me instead of the serene face and the energy of Sai Baba," she said.
"In a rut to make anything news have we forgotten to respect God and someone’s genuine devotion," she said, adding, "in front of God we bare ourselves and look to purify our soul. Instead of feeling uplifted. I came back feeling sad and deprived from Shirdi."
