Actress Aishwarya Rai Bachchan says social media has made people lazy.

“We are very quick with excuses. Work, routine, lifestyle, social media and the need to be on it 24/7. I have observed we don’t have time to look at another person and talk to him/her because we are so busy on our phones,” she said.

The actress was speaking at the India Today Safaigiri Awards in New Delhi.

“How many people would actually look around to do a basic things like leaving their phone for a minute and picking up a tissue [that] is lying on the floor, and putting in the bin? People are leaning on conveniently-attributed lethargy,” the 42-year-old star said.

Rai Bachchan, along with Minister of Information and Broadcasting M Venkaiah Naidu and chief executive of the India Today Group, Aroon Poorie, felicitated the winners of the second edition of the Safaigiri Awards.

On the film front, the actress awaits the release of Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, in which she stars alongside Ranbir Kapoor and Anushka Sharma.

Directed by Karan Johar, the romantic drama is set to arrive in UAE theatres on October 27.
