Dia Mirza on how media traumatized her brutally
During a recent interaction with BollywoodLife, Dia Mirza talked about her past when she received extreme brutal media reviews. The actress got traumatized after facing extreme criticism. However, she mentioned that the reviewers have now turned respectful while passing personal comments on celebrities. In her words:
“In our times, the media was brutal. I remember some reviewers would get so personal while evaluating work. I would be traumatized after reading such reviews. I feel reviewers are more dignified now, and do not pass personal comments. I feel people have a right to comment on work. It helps us improve. But I feel in general, we should be kinder to one another, the world will be a better place then.”
Dia recalls how celebrities enjoyed privacy during her younger days
Besides addressing about the criticism, Dia also shed light on how celebrities had more privacy when she was younger. She shared that top actors of the industry can choose what to share with public. However, the new actors don’t have such privacy and instead feel more pressurized. Mentioning that the young actors have to struggle these days, she shared:
“We had so much more privacy in our times. Still, we are so selective about what we want to share on social media. Young actors may or may not have that luxury. When they put out so much, they have to learn to deal with brickbats.”
