Senior journalist Bhupendra Chaubey was scrutinized and criticized quite a lot over his last interview with Sunny Leone on his show CNN-IBN’s talk show, The Hot Seat, which brought forward the ruthless and cheap front of journalism that widely exists in India. There are a given set of notions that are followed for every interview. Begin with light-hearted questions, make the interviewee comfortable and then go forward to the more difficult or more sensational questions.

This simple rule is a courteous manner that is followed in every interview, whether it is for a job or promotions. However this simple fact and various other humanitarian aspects were lost in the interview with Sunny Leone, simple because she was a porn star. So she was subjected to the downright juicy and sensational questions from the beginning of the interview. This angered many, mainly because the essence of journalism was lost.

Every journalist is taught to make the person sitting opposite to him comfortable before grilling them, keeping aside their past, present or any new hot topic that will bring you the views. These manners however were all reflected in a different interview shot on the same day.
Sunny Leone has been promoting her movie, Mastizaade, and has been on an interview spree. So it was no surprise that the day she faced the disastrous interview at “The Hot Seat’ with Bhupendra Chaubey, she was made comfortable and appreciated in “Walk the Talk” with Shekhar Gupta.

The basic difference between these two interviews can be seen by the way they introduce Sunny Leone. While Bhupendra went forward to sensationalize the already famous name of Sunny Leone in the most inhuman way possible, Shekhar Gupta brought to light her original name and progressed to the name she chose for the industry. What is interesting in these two interviews is, they chose the same fact, Sunny Leone is India’s top Google search in 2015, and portrayed it in extremely different ways. Shekhar Gupta made her proud of it, while Bhupendra Chaubey did what he does best.
The progress of these two interviews shows the essence of difference between a good interviewer and the bad one. While Chaubey triggered her past with his first question which directly asked her to name her biggest regret in life, (we were happy and satisfied when he was disappointed that it was not working in porn), Gupta made sure the actress felt proud and comfortable by listing her as an equal of the celebrities who had previously been on this show.

Chaubey clearly reminded us of that confused sixth grade kid who blabbers things he hears without one ounce of research to back it up, which was very evident when he spoke about the statistics that porn viewings in India have increased since Sunny Leone entered the industry, while Gupta made his research reflected with well put out questions that asked her about her past life, by stating the life she lived in the Penthouse and her entire journey.
The questions of an interview need to be varied so the personality of the person or the project can be easily understood. This was followed to perfection in the “Walk the talk” interview, while Mr. Chaubey kept making attempts to hear that Sunny regretted her past. This also brought out an important fact, something that can only be attributed to Mr. Chaubey and his lack of interviewing skills. This brought out the actual strong personality of Sunny Leone, the Bollywood Actress and made millions of people, who did not watch her past (yes, we exist), her fans.
We sure hope the support that showered from both the industry and her increased fan base makes her happy and makes Chaubey realize that it is high time he kept aside his agendas and took interviews just how they are supposed to be taken, in an unbiased, non judgmental state of mind.
