Khatija Iqbal, who was a part of ALTBalaji’s “Ragini MMS: Returns”, boasts of a generous number of followers on social media and feels it definitely encourages an artist.
She said, “It is important, especially when you are excited about putting your new work out there. As an actor, you want people to know your capabilities and a sense of achievement adds to it.”
Though she confessed that she always goes through the dilemma of whether social media disturbs the normal routine, she added, “Sometimes I feel if no one is listening then you have a wonderful audience to cater to and why not just dress up! Pose and post.”
Asked if she feels that social media needs an artist to be responsible, the actress said, “I believe it’s person to person, and I think it is important how you are presenting yourself then you will get the right attention which wouldn’t make your followers think you are fake or vice verse.”
Khatija concluded by asserting that social media is a great platform to showcase the great qualities and talent of a new artist, and added, “It’s all up to you and what you want to achieve from your audience.”
