But this time the certainty with which the scandal-mongers are probing into Mr Bachchan’s medical history to conclude that he is in hospital for a liver condition, is symptomatic of an illness that plagues entertainment journalism today.

For those who are anxious about the mega-star’s health I have it from a family member that he is well. “He’s fine. He is just in (the hospital) for routine check-ups, so no need for any alarm,” says the family member adding that he will be home very shortly.

While the mega-star’s legions of fan may sigh in relief a question that the media needs to ask is, are sensational headlines more important than the truth about the health of India’s most beloved actor?
