Vidya Balan on social media dependency 

In a conversation with Bollywood Bubble, Vidya opened up about her preference to keep her marriage private and that is why she never shared details about her marriage or family on social media. The actress said, “No one knows how perfect someone else’s relationship is. I don’t know if I claim to be in a perfect marriage but I will say that my private life is private so I guared fiercely. I don’t share about my private life, I spill out a few things in good humour because it’s very sacred and all these are not for the third person’s ears. 


She went on to add that nowadays share everything publicly which is not healthy. “Everyone is sharing so much openly from giving their updates on mood to revealing they had a breakup. There’s no end to how much they are sharing it publicly. There’s a reason why you have a private life, public life and professional life. And we must draw those lines, and maintain those healthy boundaries,” Vidya concluded.
