The Bollywood actress Kajol is certainly one of the most popular actresses of the Indian film industry and she has given many memorable performances in her career. Recently, Kajol along with her co-actor Bobby Deol attended the special screening of her movie Gupt which completed 25 years of its release. Kajol is not much active on social media but she still enjoys a huge fan following of 12.6 million on Instagram.
Recently in an interview with a movie portal, Kajol talks about the stardom and how it is getting diluted in present times. According to her, earlier only those people were famous who used to work on big screen but now people can get famous for n number of reasons thanks to social media, for instance, because of their style of combing hair, nails, etc. and many other ways.
She takes a subtle dig at those who are very active on social media by saying that most people have put their complete lives on social media platforms and are doing only one thing in 24 hours. She further says that while such people spend half of their time on the screen, the other half is spent on social media. She further adds that she is not criticizing anyone but it certainly dilutes the stardom because if a person can see you on social media platform, why he will go to the cinema hall to see you on the big screen.
Kajol who has completed 30 years in the film industry also talks about the OTTs and states that it is a fabulous time for actors as these digital platforms have given them a medium to show their talent and prove their capability instead of being judged for their personal appearances. She adds that many actors have become stars because of OTTS despite not having a 24 inches waistline and 36 or 46 inches chest.
