In dog-devours-dog world of Indian television, nothing is any longer sacred. And anything goes in the quest for securing an exclusive, a scoop, or anything that looks like an exclusive or a scoop.
One prominent television interviewer recently secured an interview with an Indian cricketer by threatening, yes by threatening, an income-tax raid, if he did not comply. Who could the interviewer and cricketer be?
Our lips are as always are sealed. We cannot reveal which language the interviewer does his interviews in, and we cannot reveal whether the cricketer is a batsman, bowler, all-rounder or wicket-keeper? (And in both those caveats, there is a clue!)
