“When I was in Singapore, this lady came up to me and said, ‘I was going through a divorce, and I woke up one morning and I was suicidal. You happened to post something on ‘getting up and going, no matter how you feel’. I saw your post and it saved my life. I wanted to get up and go to work and my life changed. Since then, every morning, what I do is look at your Instagram stories," said Masaba.
When asked if social media validation is addictive, Masaba replied saying, “500%. I’m obsessed. If I get less likes, I’m stressed out. I get a stress-rash or something.”
The two, who have known each other for years, also revealed that they have a common Whatsapp group named ‘Can’t’ for social media advises. Masaba further went on by saying that she highly admires Twinkle Khanna for her hilarious and witty Twitter posts and would love to be friends with her.
