Actor Richa Chadha, who will be next seen in Excel Entertainment’s 3 Storeys, believes social media is a blessing if used responsibly.

Richa features in Shibani Kashyap’s latest single Wanna be free, a song about encouraging people to break free from the shackles of social media.

According to the actor, social media is actually a blessing in most cases if you use it responsibly.

“You don’t have to save yourself from social media. You just have to keep the usage in check. Social media is actually a blessing in most cases if you use it responsibly,”

“In my case, people used to think that I am a certain kind of person because I do a certain kind of movies. So, that barrier created by the film image changes when people see you in your space on social media,” Richa added.

When asked if social media memes and trolls bother her the actor says they are insignificant.

“They are not worth talking about. I don’t pay attention to them, and they are insignificant to me. I think it is important to keep some alone time. As artistes, ideas will only come to our mind when we are silent. So when I go out somewhere, I keep my phone off and if I’m in a different time zone, I just tell people I am sleeping. When I am reading or writing something, I disconnect for a while. I like to stay silent before working in a new role,” Richa said in a statement.

Wanna be Free, released by Zee Music Company, has been produced by Rajiv Roda and Shibani. The video featuring Richa is directed by Lloyd Baptisa.
