Senior editorial team of Zee News made Akshay do ‘homework’ before his interview with Modi: Report

The much hyped ‘non-political’ interview of Prime Minister Narendra Modi conducted by Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar was done under the supervision of the senior editorial team of Zee News.
According to The Quint, Zee News made Akshay Kumar do some ‘homework.’
On 24 April, news agency ANI had telecast a ‘non-political’ interview of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. The interview was conducted by Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar. The hour-long chat saw the prime minister being asked questions on things such as eating mangoes, clothing and the medicine that he takes when suffering from a cold.
Quoting sources Quint reported that Akshay Kumar was given recommendations about the questions to be asked. The senior technical team of Zee Media even shot the interview and did the post-production work.
The Quint has also got access to a picture from the day of the interview.
In the picture, Akshay Kumar and Modi are seen wearing the same outfit that they were wearing during the interview.
The people seen standing next to them are said to be the staff of Zee Media. They include the people belonging to the technical and the camera department.
Considering that ANI has its own production team, the question that is raised is why did the need for Zee Media’s help arise? Was it decided that the interview be conducted by ANI, as being a wire service, it would help it reach every channel?
