Youngsters are more involved in virtual world than real world: Esha Gupta
Model turned actress Esha Gupta, who is making her digital debut with the new season of the upcoming web series "REJCTX", feels that the new generation tends to be attracted to lust, greed and crime due to the overexposure to the virtual world.
"I think these days’ youngsters have more first-world problems rather than real-world issues. Their problems can be, 'why am I not getting more likes and popularity among peers on social media?', says Esha.
There is jealousy, greed and exhibitionism rather than living in the moment while exploring. It is not just the problem of teenagers but everyone whose life is all about living on social media. The Internet has given access to everything to everyone! But their problem is not coming out of experience but overexposure," said Esha.
She further explained: "Sexual crime is also increasing among youngsters because they are overexposed. I am not against exploring new relationships and possibilities, dating and other adventures. But I am surely against sexual exploitation that has increased due to overexposed social media. I just wish that youngsters live their lives more in the real world than the virtual world."
Directed by Goldie Bahl, the new season of the show revolves around the murder of Anushka Rao, played by Kubbra Sait in the previous season. In the new season, Esha's character Rene is introduced to resolve the mystery murder mystery.
