Who are these so-called P3Ps???

It’s beyond doubt that the Page 3 has lost sheen. Those were the days when we were briefed, “P3Ps are those people who work hard and party hard too and are aspirational role-models for the readers”. This credo doesn’t work anymore thanks to the dawn of the era of Medianet & PR Agency created P3Ps a-la Poonam Sethi – Tarot Reader, Bikaram Sharma…oops…Baidyanath (The dude changed his surname coz a Sharma can be a grocer or a chemist and to add his Company’s name in the photo-caption, he had to pay ‘Corporate Rates’ to Medianet, which was twice the ‘Individual Rates’. Hence he conceptualized a new name where he replaced Sharma with the Company/Brand name- Bikaram Baidyanath. Smart move, huh???) and a vague designer duo – Kapil and Monika. 85940 614874 IMG 77921 150x150 Who are these so called P3Ps??? Pc0561700 150x150 Who are these so called P3Ps???  Some of these Medianet P3P s graduated to be featured in Page 3s of non Medianet tabloids too. Tashu too started as Medianet P3P. I still don’t know what Ammu Saidi does or what’s her claim to fame besides the fact that she is loaded with moolah. Ammu is rarely spotted with her better-half, who I am sure must be slogging to earn the moolah for the Rocks the adorn his begum’s dainty fingers. And can anybody tell me what aspirational values do these creatures instill in our readers? Thanks to her money-power, pushy PR agents and some unholy media nexus Ammu beams out of P3s every now and then. Do you recall a charity fashion show hosted be Leena and Ashima for Khushii? Well there was tussle between Ammu Saidi and Tanisha Mohan for being the show-stopper celebrity on the ramp. Guess what? Truce was worked out and both walked with Irrfan Khan after bidding jointly  for the show-stopper outfits. I am khush coz Khushii benefited! 70555 614874 khushii 101 199x300 Who are these so called P3Ps???

The designer duo – Kapil and Monika…gawd…they are an insult to P3P. Their gaudy creations will rape your aesthetics and their poses for the shutterbugs are hilarious. Why should I see him every weekend as I flip through the ‘haloed’ (or whored) Page 3?

    I think Medianet P3P culture should stop…its nothing but bribing ur way to become famous…. If people become P3P by natural selection only then would its sheen remain …………….

    Its eye candy to see all the freeloader gori chicks going for these pool parties , after all P3P has to swing the soft porn way !!! TOI doesnt have a tabloid in their stable of CREDIBLE news papers

  4. informer

    well well what about those “socialite’s” sons and daughters who discreetly pay journos and photographers moolah to appear pn PAGE 3? Or a Bengali designer who has the photographers of TOI and HT sitting in his office have beer and kebabs and walking off with goodies … only to click him att he next few parties!!!!!!!!!!!! Or wanabe models who jump right next to designers or socialites when the media bulbs are popping????????????

    Mike I know all about them and their extended family. They live in Patna but that doesn’t disqualify one from becoming P3 but yes what these two do is shocking.

    Rumors has it that AS comes from Jalandhar, not Jaipur, husband made his moolah in Lybia and other oil rich Arab countries…where in Jaipur can u make that kind of money in Jaipur, unless u were into the royal family…
    I think u need dig in more into the facts of the charity event, who hosted it and how much moolah was donated to be the showstopper…Rumors has it only one of the 2 paid…now u need to figure who paid;-)

  7. Debbie76

    and those wannabe p3p couples, K&M and PS and her hubby are damn scary man! they need a complete makeover, the 4 of them…they are a disgrace to what social pages are all about worldwide, in India anyone with money is a “celebrity” is a joke…

    Jack….i think what anonymous said is so true, people who get clicked and two days later see their pic with a surprise, r the ones that shud be put on pg 3…a lot of ppl still look at that section and wanna know whats going on in that glamour OD’ED society either they wanna be in it, or they look at it from a far, but they sure as hell deserve to see people whose pics have been selected for whatever reason not ppl who bloody paid to get on it…..but i guess tabloids need to make money too right..
    a little advice to ppl who pay and get themselevs on…..grow up get a life theres a whol world out there….dying of hunger and thirst put ur money to better use…..coz honestly the real important people who deserve to be on it dont give a shit…..

  10. fashion scribe

    i think other then medianet there are few photo journos also n yes few aunty p3 journos of toi who take money to get these ppl clicked, rather then cn u ever imagine the ugly looking bikram (chawanprash that too stinks) or tashu or that horny couple oops kapil monika the most wannabes’s cn get on page 3

    media net actually sucks ! please these news papers should have some ethics of justification !

  12. Mature Delhi Cats

    Guys ! Both ht & dt has deviated from what they should do. Somehow HT has maintained standards but still I see faces like Shabnam Singhal , Tashu in best of the poses there. Sorry for raising my words but its only HT who notice S.S every time. I must say pg3 guys must click Tashu’s banker like Robby Mohan instead of clicking her in mini’s . Also this Ugly cuban woman Thenny mogia has come from nowhere and getting clicked doing what i dont know( not beautiful , not from elizabeth’s family, no Robby like banker available , doesn’t have money but still ) Vikram sharma is still better at least he pays in open and supports some ones family. Ugly truthsssssssss

    TO BE REALLY HONEST, I THINK THE DELHI TIMES HAS GONE TO THE DOGS, ITS THE MANAGEMENT’S FAULT AM PRETTY SURE OF IT, SOME OF THE PEOPLE ARE SEEN EVERY OTHER DAY IN IT AND AM SURE THE CONTENTS ARE TOTALLY SOLD.
    THESE PEOPLE NEED NOT BE THERE OR NOBODY WANTS TO READ THE CRAP THEY MENTION BUT IT STILL COMES DAY AFTER DAY!
    DELHI TIMES AND P3 NEEDS A MAKEOVER ESPECIALLY WITH THE MANAGEMENT. CHEERS!

  14. thisnthat
