GUWAHATI: In a first-of-its-kind, Manipur's multi-talented and award-winning actress, Soma Laishram had an interactive session with her fans in New Delhi recently. Soma is a ‘social media influencer’ in her own right with close to 200,000 followers on Instagram.
With billions of people active on social media, it has become obvious that the influential status of well-known personalities like Soma Laishram from small cities are no longer restricted to a particular region or country. Therefore, actors and celebrities with reasonably huge followership on their social media accounts are today considered as ‘influencers’.
The model-turned actor and singer confessed during the session that being on social media has helped her connect with her fans not only in the North-east of India but across the length and breadth of the country and globally as well.
Thanking her fans who came from all parts of Delhi NCR she said, “It just an overwhelming experience to be here in Delhi amongst you all and receive so much love far away from where I am. I think this can be seen as a turning point in my life to be here in the capital of the country meeting my loved ones and interacting with social media influencers like you all. All thanks to social media for making it possible to connect with everyone.”
The actress also celebrated her birthday with fans and social media influencers at the meet-up which was held in one of the multi-cuisine restaurants serving authentic Manipuri foods in New Delhi.
