What Aishwarya Had Said About Not Joining The Social Media In The Past
"We are very quick with excuses. Work, routine, lifestyle, social media and the need to be on it 24/7, I had to say this... I have observed, we don't have time to look at another person and talk to him/her because we are so busy on our phones.''
"So, how many people would actually look around to do the basic things like leaving their phone for a minute and picking a tissue, which is lying on the floor, and putting in the bin? People are leaning on conveniently-attributed lethargy.''
Did Not Join Social Media Out Of Respect For Hubby & FIL
She had told Filmfare, ''I was married into a family with the three of us within this turf, I did not want to be part of the comparative space. It opens you up to trolling. So out of respect for my husband and my father-in-law, I don't need to be a part of this at this point of time!".
Twitter Is A Wonderful Tool
''Twitter is a wonderful tool to set facts right. However, it became a barometer of popularity. I didn't feel the need to get onto the rat race. But this does not come from insecurity because I never had that in terms of the number of followers or well wishers I could also possibly project.''
That Is Incredibly Vain
''That is incredibly vain. I already had that coming in various surveys and the millions of hits I was getting on Google. It was all there. So why get on to Twitter to prove that? People were putting up their yawns, sneezes, food pictures, and pictures of the sky when they were driving out to work...I know it was all to notch up the numbers."
On the work front, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan was last seen in Karan Johar's Ae Dil Hai Mushkil. The actress has not signed any film post that movie.
