Aishwarya Rai, Aishwarya Rai actress, Aishwarya Rai news Aishwarya Rai Bachchan feels an invasion of social media in people’s lives has made them lazy.

She is one of the few Bollywood stars, who have maintained distance from various digital platforms, and actress Aishwarya Rai Bachchan feels invasion of social media in people’s lives has made them lazy.

Speaking at the India Today Safaigiri Awards here, Aishwarya pointed out people don’t even have time to look to each other because they are busy “using phones”, let alone clean their surroundings.

More from the world of Entertainment:


“We are very quick with excuses. Work, routine, lifestyle, social media and the need to be on it 24/7, I had to say this… I have observed, we don’t have time to look at another person and talk to him/her because we are so busy on our phones,” she said.

“So, how many people would actually look around to do the basic things like leaving their phone for a minute and picking a tissue, which is lying on the floor, and putting in the bin? People are leaning on conveniently-attributed lethargy,” the 42-year-old actress said.

Aishwarya, along with Minister of Information and Broadcasting M Venkaiah Naidu and chief executive of the India Today Group, Aroon Poorie, felicitated the winners of the second edition of the Safaigiri Awards.

On the film front, the actress awaits the release of Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, in which she co-stars Ranbir Kapoor and Anushka Sharma. Directed by Karan Johar, the romantic drama is set to arrive in theatres this Diwali, October 28.

        Mam Aishwariya Bachhan is very much right. It has become a part of body ---- kidney, heart, lungs, with which we can't part. Phone which was a facility, in fact has now become nuisance. It has successfully created wedge between the relations.
