Varun Sharma on how social media is harming human relations

Internet has become such an intergral part of our lives that it can influence our habits, lifestyle as well as way of thinking. Although it was designed to bring people closer, eventually internet and social media made people lonlier and empty. Talking about the same, actor Varun Sharma shared how people are looking for solace in random strangers instead of confiding to their friends.

He said, "Which is sad as social media gets toxic. People today don’t confide in people they meet like friends or family. If they have read or heard something, or got a random comment, it can affect people in a huge way, including their mental health and thought process. Validation is important for everyone but seeking validation on social media is not cool. I tell my friends, we should treat internet and social media as a part of our lives not make it our whole lives. We should talk and open up to people, especially the ones we confide in."

About the digital form of entertainment, Varun said, "Quantity is wonderful. There are so many genres to be enjoyed. It is exactly like when four films release on one Friday, people watch what they like. I don’t think quality is being compromised as quality content has been getting its due. If a show is not of your or my liking, there could an audience out there who enjoys it.”
