Till date Shobhaa De has no longer uttered a phrase in this disclose approximately her paid writing/ pushing the agenda of Corporates. In the leaked tapes, Niira Radia’s talks together with her Vaishnavi Communication staffers Srini and Manoj Warrier screen that her articles are paid ones or pushed ones or vetted through Radia’s crew. The conversations also gives an affect that Shobhaa De made a few goof-u.S.In articles vetted by using the Radia’s group. These talks supply an impression that Shobhaa De’s article praising of Mukesh Ambani’s massive domestic turned into vetted or written by using Radia’s group. It also offers an expression that this article was not anything but paid information.
Another interesting truth that comes out from the communication among Radia and staffers changed into that Shobhaa De became seeking to get in contact with Ratan Tata and Niira Radia changed into blocking her attempts.
The staffer Manoj had a fight with Shobhaa De for a few remarks in her articles praising Mukesh Ambani’s new home. She tried a “monkey balancing act” in the article and it ended up as carelessness within the modifying. However, Niira Radia pacifies the staffer and made him express regret to Shobhaa De for firing her.

The relevant conversations inside the Niira Radia tapes approximately Shobhaa De are published on the end of this article.
The amusing part is that at some point Srini says Shobhaa De is a trash writer and a complete sham and Niira Radia pacifies him that she is our individual and how she (Niira) manages Times of India’s Vineet Jain to preserve her column. This indicates that Niira Radia will pay to Times of India additionally for retaining Shobhaa De’s trash columns.
