Ac­tor Ridheema Ti­wari (left), who has been part of the tele­vi­sion in­dus­try for the last seven years, says she has learnt to ac­cept the loss of pri­vacy that comes with be­ing a pub­lic ig­ure. How­ever, the ac­tor ad­mits that there are times when one feels that fans go too far.

“Fans for­get the line they need to draw. Most of the times they mix reel with real. We ac­tors are al­ways sur­rounded by so many peo­ple, we yearn for pri­vacy. Fans for­get that,” she says.

Ridheema, who has been part of shows such as Dill Mill Gayye, Do Dil Ek Jaan and Sa­sural Genda Phool, says fan en­coun­ters some­times take an ugly turn. “Fans are in­quis­i­tive. They of­ten ask weird ques­tions about our show and if we don’t an­swer, they abuse us. And even if we share de­tails, they don’t know where to stop. It be­comes very awk­ward,” she says.

The ac­tor feels that a healthy dis­tance must be main­tained be­tween an artist and fans. “Some gap is al­ways good. The more they know, the more they poke. A lit­tle dis­tance makes ev­ery­thing glossy and pri­vate... It helps them re­spect you,” she says.
