Bollywood and celebrities are known to be trendsetters. From fashion to fitness, they influence our lifestyles in more way than we can keep up with. But it isn't just their influence over us that is in question here, they've even changed the way they interact with the media and fans in general. In the years gone by, during press conferences, celebrities would answer a journalist’s questions seriously but the scenario seems to be changing these days. It has been noticed that if a celebrity isn't comfortable with answering a question or wants to duck it all together, they begin to make a joke of it and move on without actually providing a satisfactory answer.
The Total Dhamaal trailer launch, that saw the presence of Madhuri Dixit Nene, Ajay Devgan, Anil Kapoor, Arshad Warsi, Jonny Lever and Jaaved Jaaferi, had a few instances when the stars evaded questions smartly. For instance, when asked why a few other actors from the film weren't present at the trailer launch, Ajay Devgan quipped, "Oops... this stage is so small so we called only few stars."

In another instance during the same presser, a reporter asked Anil Kapoor whether he learned a Gujarati dialogue for the trailer launch and if he could recite a dialogue from the film, to which he said, "I don’t do anything for free. I am working in the industry for a very long time but my bank balance is very low. In fact, nowadays my wife scolds me to increase my bank balance because I also need to take care of my kids and family."
Wanting to keep up with the banter, Madhuri Dixit Nene too was in a mood for snarky responses. A reporter, citing a source, raised a question on whether the actress was going to contest Loksabha election this year for the BJP. To which Madhuri Dixit, along with her co-stars, took a jibe at him and his sources. Again, ignoring the questions and diplomatically shying away from the answer.
