One, more or none? Bollywood stars reveal how many WhatsApp groups they are a part of
Bet you didn’t know that Richa Chadha is part of a WhatsApp group called Global Chadhe, and that Rajkummar Rao is active on a group named Sidheshwariyas! Check out how many WhatsApp groups your favourite actors are a part of, or whether they are, at all?bollywood Updated: Apr 04, 2018 13:34 IST
Move over social media, when it comes to being active on WhatsApp groups, Bollywood actors including Parineeti Chopra, Shilpa Shetty, Radhika Apte, Rajkumar Rao, Ayushmann Khurrana, Tusshar Kapoor, Soha Ali Khan and many more, are as crazy and addicted as any of us.
They might not be able to reply to each message sent to them on personal Whatsapp chats, courtesy their busy schedules, but surely, they don’t miss out on the fun on the groups made with family, friends or a film’s co-stars. While some say they make sure to be active on each group as much as possible, some refrain from being a part of any, calling it an ‘irritating nuisance’.
Check out these stars revealing to us the number of WhatsApp groups they are a part of or why they don’t use WhatsApp, at all. Go ahead, hear it from the horse’s mouth.
NO. OF GROUPS: ONE
My cousins are settled abroad; some are in the US. So, we have this common WhatsApp group where we stay connected; it’s called Global Chadhe.
NO. OF GROUPS: FOUR
There's My school (comprising my classmates from school), Golmaal (the hit film franchise he is a part of), PR (work-related), and family, of course; that’s the one you can’t leave!
NO. OF GROUPS: THREE OR FOUR, MAYBE
I actually get out of the groups that are not very important, but there are some you can’t escape.
NO. OF GROUPS: 22-25
I am active on all. If I have to put them on mute, then I might just get out of it. My friends keep making different plans, and different things keep going, so I am a part of many groups.
NO. OF GROUPS: FOUR OR FIVE
The group that I am most active is the one with my school friends called Sidheshwariyas. It’s a lot of fun!
NO. OF GROUPS: SIX
My WhatsApp groups include my manager, PR agency and family. I am not usually active on WhatsApp, and use it only for work.
NO. OF GROUPS: ZERO
I am not on WhatsApp! It’s something which just didn’t work for me. I used to be on it, but it’s a little intrusive — every Tom, Dick and Harry can message you. I deleted it from my phone, because I like privacy.
Soha Ali Khan
NO. OF GROUPS: TEN
All my groups are family, fun-related, PR, and work related. There are new groups every time there’s a party. I try not to be too active on many groups at once, since I am the kind of person who deletes everything from their phone. I try to keep it clean. Once the work is done, I delete the group. I don’t want to cross ten.
NO. OF GROUPS: FIVE
I have lost count! The ones that I am really active on are five. One is my school group. I studied in an all-boys’ school. So, there are all the 50 boys of our class, and it’s a ruckus. We behave like 15-year-olds! Second is family, third is siblings, fourth is my business-related group and fifth, my PR group.
NO. OF GROUPS: 20-25
When you are a mother, you are a part of various WhatsApp groups! There’s a football group, mothers group, supermoms group, school group, friends, family, in-laws, entire family — so at least 20.
In 2017 I had the esteemed privilege of playing the first girl commando in the Special Forces in the Indian Army. For nearly 60 days I had the honour of wearing the OG uniform in the name of my costume for the day. Rarely as an actor do you come upon a chance to enact your childhood dream for a living. On this most glorious 70th Army Day, I’m sharing some moments ( thank you @kunjinout for all these gems ♥️) of a time that shall remain most precious to me for all my living days. I could hardly find images from set where I’m not bursting with joy in my time off. The closest I could come to being and feeling one with the Armed Forces all over again. Also, remembering today all the brave, unsung super hero Indian soldiers who no longer live to see and be with their loved ones so that we can peacefully do so. Proud forever to be an Army daughter and so blessed to have played one. #ArmyDay #ProudArmyGirl #FaujiKidForever #TheTestCase #Jan26 @altbalaji
NO. OF GROUPS: ZERO
I hate WhatsApp groups, they are a nuisance!
