Celebrities that are untouched by the social media phenomena

5 June 2015 1:02 AM, PDT | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

Today, social media platforms form an important aspect of celebrity life, as it allows them to connect with their audiences and know them better. But in reality that’s not always the case. There have been instances of public scrutiny leading to invasion of a celebrity’s private life, a fact that has deterred many known faces from entering the social space.

Here’s a list of Bollywood personalities who like it the old-fashioned way:

Ranbir Kapoor: Actor Ranbir Kapoor is one of the few actors who likes to keep his life out of the social media glare. Even though he is one of the most sought after actors in the industry, he likes to keep to himself. He is happy being away from the constant need to explain his life to everyone, even though his father Rishi Kapoor is an avid user of Twitter.

Who’s Hot Who’s Not: Nishka Lulla Pre-Wedding Brunch

3 June 2015 7:13 AM, PDT | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

Designer Nishka Lulla is all set to tie the knot with businessman Dhruv Mehra in Bangkok, Thailand. Before jetting off to the destination wedding, the duo hosted a brunch in Mumbai for family and friends. Not only is Nishka herself a well-known name within the fraternity, she also has a long-lasting relationship with the fraternity, given that mum Neeta Lulla is also a designer, and a National Award winning one at that! The event had attendees in a mix of Western and Indian attires. Given that it was a pre-wedding brunch, it was also hard to judge what should have been the dress code.

Nishka Lulla

The bride-to-be sported a design by her mother. If you know Nishka’s style, you know she’s an ultra girly-girl, so the fact that she went all out in this light pink princess-gown came as no surprise. Seems like the event actually had a Disney/Fairytale theme, »
