So­cial call­ing

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Variety - Anir­ban Das anir­ban. das@ hin­dus­tan­times. com

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.
