Pakistani veteran actor, Shaan Shahid is known for his forthright attitude. The actor is gearing up for the release of his war-saga film, Yalghaar and Arth 2 while, he is currently shooting for another action movie, Zarrar.

In a recent interview with Dawn, the actor spilled the beans on his upcoming movie Zarrar, where he is the director, lead actor and also the script writer. He also spoke about patriotism, movie-making and gave his opinions on the rise of social media for promoting films.

But did you know Shaan manages his own profiles and accounts on the Internet?

However, the maestro is not as active as the rest of the Lollywood fraternity!

Here’s what he has to say about it:

“I think that people who obsess over promoting themselves on social media are afraid that they will be forgotten if they don’t do so. Someday, I might get someone to manage my social media profile too but personally I prefer interacting with humans”

The Lollywood star then revealed what he thinks of the Badshah of Bollywood, Shah Rukh Khan being all active on Instagram and Twitter and communicating with fans over social media.

“You have to remember that Shah Rukh Khan is a 52-year-old millionaire who is desperate to grasp at whatever fame he gets”

Looks like SRK is not the only one Shaan disapproves of, he further adds:

“When I’m at work, I can interact with the media, but in my private life, I simply can’t go about showing the world that these are my friends, this is where I’m eating, here’s where I’m vacationing.”

A recent trend has shown celebs making Boomerangs and using Snapchat filters, this is what the superstar had to say about these apps.

“I can’t swing about and be part of Boomerangs. I can’t take selfies with fans where floral wreaths and dog’s ears suddenly pop over my head. I’d rather focus on what’s real.”

Hmmm… we wonder who Shaan is referring to here? A lot of our Pakistani celebrities interact with their fans on a daily basis through Snapchat and Instagram.
