‘USE SOCIAL MEDIA JUDICIOUSLY’
Kalki only posts on topics that she believes in and is ready to defend them, if the need be
Actor Kalki Koechlin (right) might be quite active on social media platforms, but each time she posts something online —Twitter, Facebook and Instagram — she is extra careful.
The 33-year-old likes to post her views about topics that she strongly believes in and exercises her discretion while doing so.“I think twice before I post something online. I don’t want to be in a situation where I can’t argue or defend my point. I only post something when I know the subject fully, and am sure about the subject,” says Kalki.
However, if Kalki gets trolled for a post, she doesn’t bother about it much, unlike many actors who lose their cool on reading negative comments on their posts. “I switch off. I don’t look at trolls or reply to [any of] them. I’m not someone, who would dig out and read what people are writing under my posts. I look at social media as a medium, where you can put your stuff and that’s the great part. But when it comes to comments, I don’t really bother,” says the actor.
Although getting trolled might be the toughest part that comes along when you are a celebrity, Kalki believes that there is a positive side to it as well. “The best part is that you get to live your dreams and nightmares. You get to express everything without any inhibitions. When you are going through a tough time, you can channelise that into your art. It’s important for all of us to emotionally channel ourselves,” says Kalki, who has been part of films such as Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara (2011), Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani (2013) and That Girl in Yellow Boots (2011)
