My mom always tells me stories about yesteryear superstar Suchitra Sen and how the actress was seldom spotted in public. And that’s because she always wanted to keep the enigmatic essence of her persona intact. Several other yesteryear stars also maintained a low profile in public by being less available to the audience just to protect their ‘starry image’.
Have you noticed how both the Kapoor cousins, Kareena Kapoor Khan and Ranbir Kapoor are both not on social media and have often asserted how they never want to be a part of it. Perhaps because they also want to be a little less available to everyone.
Kareena recently told IANS:
Earlier, there was respect for the actor but now I don’t see such respect among people. In past, people used to get desperate to get one glimpse of their favourite actors, but now celebrities themselves put their bathroom pictures and too many weird pictures on social media.
