No more social media
Kirti Kulhari has done what she feels is the best, moved away from the social media platform. It takes a lot of courage for a celebrity to take a step in that direction. After all, it is here that there is a direct connection with the fans and it is also here that you can put out your latest news. As Falak in the movie Pink, she had the nation sit up and take notice of her talent. As an individual, with a choice that we all want to do but don’t have the courage to, Kirti has set the bar higher!
Here is what she has put up on all her social media handles: Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
“It’s my last day on social media… All platforms. I think it’s time. Had never been very sure of being on it in the first place, but like so many things in life, I ended up doing it because it made me feel accepted, or it was the right thing to do because the whole world was doing it, or in this case believing that “My work demands it”.
“All these have been excuses to run away from what my heart had been telling me always, ‘ don’t belong here. I really don’t and slowly and slowly I am finding the sensitivity to spot the false in my life, and the courage to drop it. This is one of those things.
I don’t need to be on social media
“Some people use social media to share their opinions. I don’t have too many opinions to share because I don’t know enough about enough things to have an opinion about them. My work is never and has never been affected by what I do or don’t do on social media, so that excuse is out too.
“I am a social person but not a very public one. I have zero interest in sharing what’s happening in my life with the rest of the world. I want people to know me only for the work I do in different fields. And for that, I don’t need to be on social media. Yes, I will be less accessible to all my fans but just know that all your acknowledgement and love will always reach me.
“Now with this one distraction gone from my life, I hope I can use that time and energy for other things that personally and truly matter to me.
“Loads of love to all those who have consistently showered me with love and respect; may you all find the courage to walk on your individual paths.”
God Bless You All.
A contact on her friend list, Hemang Chheda, was quick to respond, “See you on the other side which is real.”
Rajnish Lall echoed that sentiment: “See you in the real world,” he wrote.
That’s where we all need to be!
Well done Kirti, I’m sure more will follow suit and now want to be in the real world!
