The actress sees nothing wrong in clicking selfies and does not consider social media a bane.
Mumbai: Katrina Kaif may have joined the party (called ‘social media’) late but the actress is enchanted by it already. Almost a year into Facebook usage, the actress is using it as a platform to share her biggest passion with the world- films.
A leading daily sat down with the lovely actress and talked about the downside of social media and what is her takeaway from it. Here is how the lady tackled those questions:
What would Katrina Kaif post on her Facebook page:
Films for me are my biggest passion. My art, at this point of time in my life, is my reason to get up in the morning. So, if I am not going to share that aspect of my life on my social media accounts, that’s unbalanced.
On celebrities making important announcements on social media:
That is absolutely fine as they are using the platform to announce what’s special to them. If I was in that situation I would too. But I am not. So whenever that happens, of course.
On a recent survey suggesting people with obsession for selfies may be lonely or attention seekers:
When people talk to me about selfies, I feel like it has a negative connotation. Like is everyone who takes a selfie a megalomaniac? The answer is no. I can do a study with a 100 candidates and prove that people, who are on social media in ten years, will be slightly emotionally dysfunctional. These are studies which we can never prove or disprove. Today, I can tell you something and I can change my mind in one week. Unfortunately, that is the way the world works. The world moves so fast, we all change our minds. I don’t think there is anything wrong with taking selfies. But I can tell you what has become annoying or for lack of a better word, funny. It is the way people behave before clicking a picture. I am very happy to take pictures. But maybe, just figure the arrangement of your hair in advance or just get ready and come. Doing a 10-minute tayyari (preparation) for a picture is a bit obnoxious
Kats will next be seen in Anurag Basu’s ‘Jagga Jasoos’ opposite rumoured former lover Ranbir Kapoor.
The film releases on July 14.
