Lux Golden Rose Awards 2018: Kareena Kapoor Khan, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Karisma Kapoor rule the red carpet
Aishwarya Rai Bachchan kept away from the social media for a very long time until joining Instagram earlier this year. She says the fact that people start seeing it as a “barometric reflection of your popularity or status” was a put off for her.
The actor and former Miss World spoke up about it for Conde Nast Traveller India, the 50th issue of which features her as the cover star.
So far, she says, her social media journey has felt natural.
“I dont post whatever happens through the course of the day because then it would become a job and then youre constantly focusing only on the fruition of it, and not the actual experience. I need to be connected to my real life,” said Aishwarya, according to excerpts shared with IANS.
What made her decide to make her social media foray finally?
“I think its the patience, prodding and perseverance of my well-wishers… I mean, its the way of the world; I get it. The reason I stayed away for so long was that the nature of the beast is such that it becomes a business. Everyone wants numbers, they start to see it as a barometric reflection of your popularity or status. How do you then monetise it, or treat it professionally?

“Its fine that its a business at the end of the day, but I didnt want to get drawn into that entire world, the drama. That said, its a way of life, its the world in which our kids are growing up, its here to stay, and theres nothing wrong with it,” added the mother of one.

Talking about her favourite vacation style — beaches, mountains, cities, jungles or deserts — she said: “Abhishek and I are happy everywhere but eve been doing a lot more beach destinations since we had Aaradhya.”
What is always in Aishwaryas travel bag?
“You cant ask me that! Abhishek always laughs and says my bag is like a Mary Poppins bag – even before Aaradhya. Whatever you need will pop out of it. Everything that you could possibly think of is in there.”
