Asha Parekh mocks social media: ‘There’s too much exposure…’

actor of yesteryear Asha Parek said that she was not present on social networks because she did not like them too much. In an interaction with Hindustan Times, Parekh, who was often referred to as the Bollywood’s ‘Hit Girl’said she wasn’t even interested in experimenting with them.

“I don’t like it and I don’t want to experiment either. There is too much exposure because of all this. If you’re not seen much in public, people are curious about you,” she said.

Padma Shri award winner Parekh is best known for films like Kati Patang, for which she won Filmfare Best Actress award, Mera Gaon Mera Desh, Aan Milo Sajna, Mahal among others.

She also talked about receiving love from her fans even though she hasn’t been an actress in decades. She said, “It’s very encouraging, I’m very happy about it. I hope people will remember me and continue to love me until I live.

Although Asha was one of the most successful actresses of the 1970s, becoming a performer once dreamed of becoming a doctor. During her recent appearance on India’s Best Dancer Season 2 reality show last year with Dharmendra, she said, “Even I wanted to be a doctor. For school I used to travel every day from Santa Cruz to Flora Fountain and one day on my way to school I saw an accident site and all the blood really freaked me out dizzy. That’s when I knew I couldn’t be a doctor.

But that didn’t stop her from helping those in need of medical help. She added, “With the income I earned working in films, I opened a hospital and help people in need in my own way. Even you can do that Saumya. You can also help the poor and underprivileged by being a dancer. Being a doctor is not important. Become who you really want to be.
