Siddharth speaks on why he is not comfortable being photographed

While promoting his film, Chithha, Siddharth shared his views on whether the popular paparazzi culture in Bollywood should also pave its way to the South film industry and how photographs clicked by the paps often lead to loads of negative and hate comments on social media. 

Reacting to a question on whether the pap culture should come to the South film Industry, the Aruvam actor said, "Social media scares me. They take a photograph of me at a funeral and while going from the funeral, I'm crying so I'm wearing sunglasses. There are 50 photographers around me and one of them saying look at me. The bad part is when you go to the comments, they will say, Look at this rascal. He's come with sunglasses to a funeral.’ So where I went, what is the news? How is this fair?’’

Further, the actor also said that it is not his job to always be available for the media. Sharing an anecdote from his life, Siddharth recalled the bizarre time when he was captured naked in the hospital by the nurses who wanted a picture of him.
