On why she doesn't spend much time on Instagram

On spending less time on Instagram, Sobhita said, “It’s because I’m very sensitive. If I said I don’t get affected by what people say, that’d be a lie. I do get affected by what people say and I want to remain like that. I don’t want to be desensitised. I want to feel everything. I’d rather be broken a million times than be callous. So limiting exposure is one way to address that.”

Sobhita on "casual objectification"

Talking about ‘casual objectification’, Sobhita said, “We’re very good with reducing people to keywords. This is a ‘hot person’, this is a ‘cute person’, this is a ‘funny person’. This endless desire to flatten out complexity and pool people into one bucket only serves a PR narrative. It’s actually quite oppressive for the person itself. I’ve been told so many times to be more ‘palatable’ or less ‘unpredictable’ and that continues to amuse me.”
