Page 3 culture
Page 3 culture is the name given to tabloid culture in India covering India's partying, high society or upper class, and metropolitan culture, specifically Mumbai's, Delhi's and Bangalore's, which are all a feature of page three tabloid newspapers.
The term originates from India's colourful daily newspaper supplements appearing usually on the third page that document parties. Page 3 features colour photo spreads of celebrities and the nouveau riche at parties. Those featured on page 3 often include fashion designers, socialites, models, remix music divas and the glamorous and rich.
Page 3 has become a phenomenon which arose from sensationalism.
