Actor Vidya Balan (left), who doesn’t like being connected at all times, has finally started using a messaging app to keep in touch with her loved ones. The actor left for Hong Kong last month with her husband, producer Siddharth Roy Kapur, on a work trip, and has been sharing photographs from her travels with her family and friends through the app.
“Vidya has always avoided social networking sites and mobile applications, as she wanted to stay away from constant updates by people and forwarded messages. It was only in Hong Kong that she felt the need to download such an app to share her photos with her close ones. She has been regularly sending photos of places she has been visiting in Hong Kong,” says a source close to the actor.
Now that she has discovered the benefits of the app, the actor is also apparently considering joining a social networking site. “She is considering joining Twitter and Instagram now. She will return to Mumbai on August 3, and plans to discuss the options with a few close ones,” adds the source.
