Khushi Kapoor is one of the most popular Gen Z divas at the moment. Younger daughter of filmmaker, Boney Kapoor and late actress, Sridevi, Khushi is all set to follow in the footsteps of her mother and sister, Janhvi Kapoor with her debut film, The Archies.

In a recent interaction with NDTV, Khushi Kapoor talked about her take on social media. The diva revealed that she has been exposed to it right from a very young age, and as a result, she has seen a fair side of its negative effects. Moreover, she emphasised that she has learnt to remain desensitised towards it, and now does not take anything to her heart. In her words:
“Unfortunately, I think I was exposed to a lot of it (Social media) from a very young age, so I’ve been kind of desensitised to a lot of it. You learn to differentiate when you read something, whether it stems from someone else’s insecurity. Now, I’ve learned not to take it so much to heart. I don’t really go through everything and overthink it as much as I used to before. Seeing it a lot from a young age has helped me differentiate it now. I value other people’s opinions more who mean more to me, as I know it’s coming from a better place.”
