After the conversation that Deepika Padukone sparked about mental health, Katrina Kaif has said she thinks social media is to blame for poor mental health in young people.
“In today’s time of social media, the young lot is really running away from real and basic things. They are indeed going through mental health problems and leading a life of confusion… In the future, when I will have kids, I will surely keep them away from social media. Till I can manage to keep them away, I will do so. I will see that my children get involved with more physical activity and learn things through practical knowledge,” said the actress, as reported by Asian Age.
She went on to give a personal example, “Just recently, I had returned from a wedding. I decided to go out and treat myself to a lunch in a restaurant near my residence. Treating yourself for lunch is a simple thing. But then I immediately thought of the paparazzi who would be waiting to click me. Being a peoples’ figure, I thought I would have to wear some make up and do my hair. If my photograph was published, and was not up to the mark’, the photos could be trolled. So I dropped the idea of treating myself outside in a restaurant. Seven to eight years earlier, this was not the condition.”
Kaif was last seen on screen in ‘Zero’ (2018).
