While more and more actors are finding reasons to jump onto social networking platforms such as Twitter and Facebook to stay connected with their fans, actor Kay Kay Menon finds the whole process a waste of time. He says time spent on these platforms is the worst form of over communication.
"Communication via Facebook and Twitter is such a waste of time according to me. I don't understand the constant need to communicate. Why would I want to tell someone where am I going to take shower at? I would rather invest time spent here in a game of tennis," Kay Kay told IANS.
"I agree under communication is bad but this type of over communication is worst. If I really need to talk to someone, then I pick up the phone and call that person or pay him or her a visit," he added.
He feels this constant need to communicate makes people lose their integrity.
"I find actors on sets hooked on to Twitter and Facebook in between the shoot. Instead of wasting time on these things, they can talk about the film or even discuss scenes. I get obnoxious looking at such people who have no integrity towards their work," said the actor, known for his work in films such as Sarkar, Life in a... Metro and Gulaal.
The 45-year old is neither on Facebook nor on Twitter. In fact, he doesn't even have an email address!
"I'm not available on any social (networking) platform and neither do I intend to join sooner or later. I don't even have an email address. I deal most communication personally or via my manager," he said.
For now, Kay Kay is awaiting the release of his debut Tamil film Udhayam NH4, releasing April 19.
