After becoming a household name as Samar of “Anupamaa”, Sagar Parekh is currently seen in the eleventh season of “Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa”. All eyes are on the young actor as he gets applauded for his performance in the dance reality show. But he feels that it’s quite challenging to be in the public eye all the time.

“In the age of social media, maintaining privacy has become even more challenging.  We are often in the public eye, and the media and fans are curious about our personal lives as well. It makes it difficult for actors to have regular, private moments without the fear of being exposed or misinterpreted. Being in the public arena all the time is not so easy,” he said. 

“I won’t post bathroom selfies or any intimate kind of pics. That way, I am a very private person,”

He agrees that social media has definitely bridged the gap between an actor and their fans. He said, “With social media, it's like actors want to connect more with their fans and be more real. It's essential to note that while many actors embrace this shift towards openness, some still prefer to keep certain aspects of their lives private.” And he feels that striking the right balance between sharing personal information and maintaining boundaries is a subjective decision. 

“How much public you want to be a personal choice. Generally, I would choose to share aspects of my life that I feel comfortable discussing and that contribute positively to my public image. I am careful in my conduct and believe in being humble,” Sagar added. 

He believes that though the information shared becomes social, what to share and what not to is a personal choice. “Everyone has a different comfort level. We often draw the line by considering what aspects of our lives we want to keep private. Some actors prefer to keep certain relationships or personal challenges away from the public eye to maintain a sense of privacy and protect their loved ones. So do I,” he said.
