Katrina also received a warm welcome from the Bollywood fraternity.

After a slow but steady entry on the second social media platform (Facebook being the first) Katrina told IANS in an interview that she faced a lot of criticism, but she has learnt to handle them gracefully.

The actor said,"I, being an actress, faced a lot of criticism. I learnt to handle them gracefully. It is disheartening, of course, especially if there is a series of criticism on something which you put your heart to. But I do not over analyze things, I move on."

Katrina understands that social media is a double-edged sword. While it gives celebrities a chance to interact with their fans, the backlash for even the pettiest issue gets quite prominent.She said,"Social media is a platform where people express their thoughts openly. So, there will be a variety of opinion, whether it is positive or negative. So people like us, who are always there in front of the camera, and people who are into a creative profession, have to face it. I know that art cannot be judged on a set format. Different people can have a different perspective to that, and everybody is welcome to their own opinion. However, I think trolls and ranting happen more on Twitter. I am not there."

When questioned if she hasn't joined Twitter yet due to the trolls, she replied,"No, not really, that is not the reason why I am not there. I might join Twitter. But these things are part of social media."

Katrina also spoke about maintaining a balance between work and her online presence. She added,"I know the excessive use of social media at times kills the soul of conversation. But I always maintain a balance. When I am at work I stay away from Facebook as I take my work seriously. And when chatting with fans, I give time to them. It works properly with me. Now, that I joined Instagram I will be uploading a lot of pictures, I love this idea of clicking pictures and sharing them with fans."

The fans are really enjoying her quirky Instagram posts while awaiting her upcoming release Jagga Jasoos.
