Vidya Balan is anti-so­cial media

While there are many ac­tors who like to stay in the news and like to share their off­screen lives on their so­cial media pro­files, ac­tor Vidya

Balan (above) has stayed away from it all so far. She says that she might not be com­fort­able let­ting so­cial media en­ter her per­sonal space.

“Oth­ers, per­haps, have things to say to peo­ple. I don’t. Not be­yond or out­side of my films. There­fore, I only talk about my films. In fact, I don’t think I will be com­fort­able talk­ing about per­sonal stuff or post­ing per­sonal pic­tures. And most im­por­tantly, I don’t think I will be okay com­ment­ing on things on a reg­u­lar ba­sis,” says the 37-year-old ac­tor.

And she de­scribes her­self as one of the most “an­ti­so­cial” per­sons, but with a pleas­ant twist. “I might shy away from so­cial media be­cause in a cer­tain way, I am the most anti-so­cial so­cial,” says the Ka­haani ac­tor, ex­plain­ing, “I love peo­ple and I love be­ing around peo­ple. But I need one-on-one in­ter­ac­tions. I don’t re­ally like this face­less in­ter­ac­tion with peo­ple. I need to hear the voice, see the ex­pres­sion and con­nect at a per­sonal level.” Balan says that she would rather con­nect with peo­ple on a per­sonal level, which is far more en­rich­ing than con­nect­ing over the in­ter­net.
