Shraddha Kapoor has often been paired to her co-stars – earlier Aditya Roy Kapur during AASHIQUI 2 and now Farhan Akhtar, whom she will be sharing screen space with, in the movie release this week – ROCK ON!! 2.
When asked Shraddha what are her views on link-ups, she said, “I really wonder where these things come up from. I wonder if the reporters are writing them so that their articles be read or journalists doing it for eyeballs?
I feel it’s so sad because when an actor is giving an interview about their film or what they want to talk about, and at the end of the day, the headline of the article is related to the link-ups, it’s so disrespectful for the actor who’s giving them so much time. We give our lives to a film and give interviews to talk about it. Seeing a link-up heading is really unfair. It just feels that all efforts put into a film is something that should be spoken about.”
“The fact that I spent 66 days behind ROCK ON!! 2 and 70 days behind prep is something I want to share. Maybe that needs more acknowledgement,” she added.
Well, Shraddha hopes there be improvement in reporting. She said, “I just wish there was a lot more responsible reporting in that sense because you can’t write anything not thinking about the other person. We are also humans, have parents and are answerable to people. I wish they were more empathetic towards actors. We put ourselves to limelight so you’ll have the control to ask us questions.”
Speaking about her family’s reaction, the actress shared, “I’m the one who’s usually hyper and feel that why should I speak when what I’ve spoken isn’t what has been written.
They pacify me, but I feel that’s no reason for anybody to get attention. That’s it. I’m very happily single and romancing my movies.”
