In a recent interview with Dawn, Shaan opened up about social media publicity.

The Yalghaar star handles his social media accounts personally and is less active compared to other celebrities.

Here’s what he has to say about it:

“I think that people who obsess over promoting themselves on social media are afraid that they will be forgotten if they don’t do so. Someday, I might get someone to manage my social media profile too but personally, I prefer interacting with humans.”

He then shared his thoughts about Shah Rukh Khan’s social media interactions with fans.

“You have to remember that Shah Rukh Khan is a 52-year-old millionaire who is desperate to grasp at whatever fame he gets.”

“When I’m at work, I can interact with the media, but in my private life, I simply can’t go about showing the world that these are my friends, this is where I’m eating, here’s where I’m vacationing,” he added

He then criticized celebrities for using Boomerang and Snapchat filters!

“I can’t swing about and be part of Boomerangs. I can’t take selfies with fans where floral wreaths and dog’s ears suddenly pop over my head. I’d rather focus on what’s real.”
