Sandeep Nahar: Social media helps tell an actor’s journey
While there has been enough talk about how social media is quite addictive, actor Sandeep Nahar says that it is a necessary addiction. The actor says that it helps your fans know more about you, which is very important for an actor. “Social media plays a very important role. I think that the boom is very beneficial for actors. It plays a very important role in an actor’s life. Sometime people may go to watch a movie and miss out the presence of certain actors. But social media makes you aware of their work. It’s the platform through which people become aware of an actor’s journey. While it might be addictive to an extent, but it’s important too,” says Sandeep, who has been part of movies such as MS Dhoni, Kesari and shows such as Kehne Ko Humsafar Hain 1 and 2.
However, as him in social media presence has any relevance to an actor’s talent, and he says, “I don’t think social media popularity has any relevance to an actor’s talent. These are two different things. You can say that social media can take your talent to different heights which you might not have achieved otherwise. But your social media popularity can’t be your talent.”
While some actors are very open about their life and post a lot of social media, others are more restricted when it comes to posting personal stuff. To each, his own, says Sandeep. “I think it’s their personal life and everyone knows what they are doing. So it’s on them what to post or not,” he says.
He adds, “I am very careful about what I post on my social media handles. My posts can be read by everyone and I don’t want anyone to misunderstand what I write.”
