'We can't rely so much on social media'

'We can't rely so much on social media'
Social media has become an integral part of Bollywood movie promotions but actor Varun Dhawan says online popularity does not often translate into a big opening of a movie.

“I don’t think most of the big and successful actors get into this. But I cannot deny social media either, it will make you think. Today, every actor thinks before writing anything on such platforms. We cannot be relying so much on social media though. Social media popularity will not translate into your film’s opening.”

The ‘Student of the Year’ actor says people have the right to express their opinion online but it is unfair to become abusive or threatening. “People can have their own likes and dislikes towards a film. There is no harm in disliking a film. If you don’t like something, you have the right to express your feelings, as we have the freedom of speech in our country.”

“Saying something bad is totally cool as we can learn something from our mistakes. But when it becomes extreme, then it is wrong,” the actor said.
