Katrina Kaif is one of the few stars — like Saif Ali Khan- Kareena Kapoor Khan and Ranbir Kapoor — to have stayed away from social media. But she’s prepared to dip her toe in the pool that is communication. From this month, three social media accounts will be maintained by the performer. Katrina will formally be on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook.
It was started and managed by the attractiveness business which is why she’s a brand ambassador while she’s held a temporary Twitter account, that she supported. Her birthday is celebrated by Katrina and she intends her social media ‘start’ around that date.
A source close to the actress says, “Katrina was not convinced about joining social media but she now realises that it’s one of the most powerful tools to convey one’s thoughts and opinions and she has decided to jump in and test the waters. The first film that she will promote on social media is Baar Baar Dekho, which releases in September. Her reasons for joining the social media are more personal than professional. She wants to have a platform to say what she wants, and also connect with her fans directly. First, she plans to join Facebook and Insta and then she will make her presence felt on Twitter. She wants to start with a personalised introduction on FB. She will be handling the accounts herself and not through managers or a digital company.”
Isn’t that now that is exciting? We understand only how much Kat has consistently been away from even lots of social events for that matter and social media. But seems like she’s not unready to that that drop! And stay tuned to the space for latest upgrades and more rumors!
