Arjun Kapoor opens up about the traumas and tortures celebrities’ families go through on social media

In an exclusive conversation with Bollywood Hungama, Arjun Kapoor revealed the cons that come along with being a celebrity and active on these social media platforms. When asked about the importance of having a law in place where it protects the celebs can have their opinions out in the open, he said, “Honestly, it would make our lives so much more simpler. We can talk about anything under the sun without thinking of our family and the repercussions they would have to face.”

He further said, “Today it is not about us, we will somehow handle ourselves. What happens is you get troubled through various different ways and today through social media there emotional trauma and torture that our families have to go through who are also part of the social spectrum and it is unfair. You asked for an opinion because you feel we have an opinion we share it and we get castrated. Nobody castrates the people that are doing wrong you want to castrate the person that has an opinion on the person doing wrong. Because we are soft targets, we give you publicity. We create a certain amount of noise, if you attack us we can talk about it. But if we say something nice, it gets suppressed. So yes, it needs to be controlled but that has to come from the top. If freedom of speech is part of our constitution and if we’re a democratic country; then, nobody should be scared to give an opinion.”

Take a look at the complete segment here.

We totally agree with Arjun! What do you have to say about bullying the celebs’ family members on social media? Do let us know.
