I don’t deny the power of this platform as I have used it to promote my films and it has helped me keep my fans updated on my work etc. I have been able to interact with my audience and have got their feedback on a regular basis. I have always taken both the positive and negative comments with regards to my work, constructively. But of late, Twitter has become a place for mudslinging and hatred. I have seen my friends from Marathi industry getting affected by the negativity there. Extremely disrespectful remarks are being made for Marathi artistes. So, I don’t want to be on a platform that doesn’t give me good energy.”
