Television star Srishti Jain feels social media has helped celebrities connect with their fans like never before, but we should not let the medium overpower us.

Srishti has garnered a substantial fan base playing Navya in the show "Hamariwali Good News". Dhr also won accolades for her role in the show "Meri Durga".

"From fans being able to connect with us to sharing pictures and videos so they can get a peek into our lives and thoughts, to making small businesses flourish and create an amazing platform for content creators, social media has done it all. It has become a part of our existence, we post and share and browse and that's it. One shouldn't allow it to overpower us," She acknowledges social media also comes with a bag full of responsibilities.

"It is important for people to recognise that actors are human beings too, and we have the right to express ourselves without being pressured for being idols. At the same time it is true that when you're a public figure people want to follow you, so it's our responsibility to be careful. Not everything needs to be put out there anyways," she says.
