After two weeks of break, Priya Varrier, who had deactivated her Instagram page, is back. And she shared a video for her followers explaining the reason for why she quit the platform for a while.
Thanking everywho who were concerned for her absence, Priya stated that she did it for her mental health and her peace of mind.
In a ten minute long video, sha says, “I had a lot of fun in the past two weeks, however, since it is my professional space, I am back. I was at peace to be honest. I wanted that this social media should not mess with my mind or should not matter to me. During the lockdown, like many, I felt it started getting to my head. I felt that I was under some kind of pressure about the likes, followers and comments.”
She further added, “But fuinnilly enough, I saw lot of trolls, articles, memes. I don't know people tend to make a big deal. It's my personal space and even in the future if I feel like doing it, I will go ahead as it's totally my freedom.”
“I'm very used to be trolled and it's nothing new. I came to the industry when I was 18 and it's been two years. These years are a person's formative years and I believe all the negativity I have got have made me all the more strong,” she added.
“I have been inside my house for about 3 months. I get panic when I think about my career and my future. I am dealing it with myself in my own way. I am fine with healthy trolling but at times, some of these definitely hurt. Be a little more considerate when you write something on others,” she concluded.
Though she was away from Insta, Priya Varrier, who made her TikTok debut in end-March, was quite active on TikTok posting videos regularly on the platform.
On the film front, Priya is all set to make her Bollywood debut with Prasanth Mambully's Sridevi Bungalow.
