Unlike his father Rishi Kapoor, actor Ranbir Kapoor is not interested in joining the micro-blogging site Twitter. Here's why he has decided not to join.
At the Bombay Velvet trailer launch event,
when Ranbir was asked about his reason for not joining Twitter, he
said some interesting things.
"In my honest opinion, we don't have freedom of speech in India.
If you say anything, then ten different interpretations are made
out of it. If you don't have freedom of speech, then how can you
use a medium like Twitter?" Ranbir Kapoor said.
However, he thinks that his dad Rishi Kapoor talks freely in
Twitter and finds no fault in his tweets too.
"There are only a few people who talk freely on Twitter, like my
father for example. I haven't found any fault in any of his tweets,
but why create that opportunity to speculate where people think ten
different things about your tweet and you have to clarify it later
on. So, I don't think I'll join Twitter," Ranbir said.
Ranbir also said that he is not going to join Twitter to promote
his film Bombay Velvet, just like the way he did for a
phone brand in January.
"I don't think that I'll have to join Twitter to promote Bombay
Velvet. They haven't asked me to also. I had come on Twitter that
day because Lenovo, who were launching a new phone, wanted me to
interact through their handle. It wasn't my account," Ranbir
Directed by Anurag Kashyap, Bombay Velvet featuring Anushka Sharma, Kay Kay Menon, Karan Johar and Vivaan Shah among others will release on May 15.
