Zeenat Aman on social media break

Sharing a picture of her looking smart and vibrant in a mint green outfit, Zeenat Aman penned a long note. She revealed that this picture was taken from her son Zahaan Khan’s car window. In her long note, she revealed that she got bored of seeing her own face on her grid hence she took an unplanned social media break.

Further, she expressed her fascination with what social media has done to society. She further wrote about how the idea of fame has been democratized on social media as anyone with a little talent, luck, and a smartphone can build a career. This would have been impossible without privileges back in the time.

She concluded by saying, “On the other hand I am very cautious of the culture of easy outrage that has proliferated online. And how casually some people say cruel things online that they would never dare say in person. To me this indicates a bored society that has forgotten how nuanced the world, and each person in it, is! To invalidate, tear down, and sully people for the smallest of indiscretions is absolutely counter to my approach, which is dialogue, and sometimes the acceptance that opinions can differ, and that’s okay.”
