Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is reportedly considering joining social media.
The actress has been all over social media over the last few days due to her red carpet appearances at the Cannes Film Festival 2017. Whilst we have not seen her directly post or tweet on the sites, husband Abhishek Bachchan has proudly been posting pictures of his wife at the festival. Now it looks like the actress may enter into the social media sphere herself.
Speaking to DNA India, Rai Bachchan said “I know I haven’t yet forayed into that space. But I think, yeah, the time has come for me to join social media because it’s very much the calling. Everyone has been asking me so vehemently and so sweetly, year after year”.
However she is also very much aware of the pitfalls of social media. Over the last few days actresses attending Cannes, including Deepika Padukone and Sonam Kapoor, have been pitted against one another and Rai Bachchan realises social media has made this more accessible. “There’s competition everywhere, especially in this world of social media. It’s not just today, it’s been there for over the years. Everybody has opinions and we shouldn’t even bother judging whether it’s fair or not. Because this is here to stay. There is a platform and people will give opinions,” she added. However she is also aware that it is down to the individual to decide whether they can cope with the comments and opinions made.
