While many from the film frat can’t get enough of so­cial media, ac­tor Konkona Sen

Sharma (right) says she’s got no time for it. With four film re­leases sched­uled for this year, it’s her movie com­mit­ments and four-yearold son Ha­roon that keep the ac­tor oc­cu­pied.

“I’m very busy. I don’t know how peo­ple find the time to be ac­tive on Twit­ter and Face­book. I’d also love to chill for a while, but I’m a mother to a young child, and I have many movie re­leases. I also run a house­hold and there’s also a film I want to di­rect. I have no time to be on so­cial media plat­forms,” says the 35-year-old, who will soon be seen in a biopic on free­dom fighter Gour Hari Das.

Konkona, who hails from a filmy fam­ily — her mother Aparna Sen is an ac­claimed ac­tor and film di­rec­tor, her fa­ther Mukul Sharma is a writer and her grand­fa­ther Chi­dananda Das­gupta is a film critic and writer — she tells us that she never wanted to be­come an ac­tor.

“My par­ents have been a part of this world and I grew up here, but I wasn’t sure of what I wanted to do,” says Konkona. “When I was in col­lege, I did my first film, but I still didn’t want to act. It was only af­ter my film, Mr and Mrs Iyer (2002), which I did be­cause my mother told me to, that I re­alised I’d pur­sue act­ing,” she adds.
