Essay for Civil Services exam; XAT; UPSC, Civil Services Exams: Tradition and Modernity: Friends or Foes?

Debate/GD: Celebrity Endorsements – Right or Wrong?

While roping in a celebrity may or may not work out for a company there are no two ways about the charisma of these individuals and their ability to get hold of the audience’s attention.  A well-formulated strategy could catapult the fortunes of a company or, in another scenario, it could well prove to be a costly mistake.  However, now that doubts are being raised and studies proving the harmful effects of certain products, the big question arising here is that whether celebrities should be endorsing products and services at all?
