While most of Bollywood has joined the social media bandwagon right from the beginning, Katrina took some time and stayed away from the masses. Ultimately the actress joined Facebook and later Instagram much to the delight of her fans.
When Katrina was asked by a leading daily on whether social media is a curse, she said, “I think there are two ways of looking at it. If you can’t beat them, join them (smiles).”
Speaking of privacy in today’s social media times, the actress said, “In about last five years, the concept of privacy has anyway ceased to exist and I saw the shift happen when the photographers could be spotted everywhere in Mumbai and, in a way, the paparazzi culture started.”
Talking further about paparazzi culture, Katrina said, “In the last half decade or so, that culture or that sense of privacy that you are talking about changed with the invasion or takeover of social media. If I go off social media, it is not going to give me more privacy. You are still going to have that paparazzi picture or that photo from a party.”
She added, “Earlier, everybody would get to know about a party — who all were there and what all happened — only 3-4 days after it had taken place but that’s not the case anymore.
Meanwhile, Katrina will next be seen in Tiger Zinda Hai. The movie which also stars Salman Khan is being helmed by Ali Abbas Zafar and is slated to release on December 22, 2017.
