Talking about the video, Shibani said, ” I am personally addicted to social media and this video is a wake-up call for me. For me, roping in Richa was the correct choice. She is one of the most intelligent actress we have. She’s not just a brilliant actor on screen but there’s a lot of off-screen intellect she has especially on her social media and thus she was the perfect fit”.
While sharing her views on social media addiction, Richa said, “Internet and social media are a boon, but if used to a certain limit. Social media addiction can be very dangerous and we are slowly getting there. It’s not an epidemic today but we aren’t too far away from it. Social media is a blessing if it’s in control and used for the right things”.
