A man who may be good-looking, have money and style, but lacks etiquette and good manners is a turn-off for Bollywood actress Preity Zinta, who believes good conduct is as essential on virtual platforms as in real life.

She chose 'Manners and etiquette in life and on social media' as a topic of discussion with her Twitter followers.

Preity, who was dating Bombay Dyeing scion Ness Wadia, added that "a simple 'please' or 'thank you' can go a long way in life".

"The best looking guy with money and style without manners is actually a big turn-off. Manners don't belong to the rich or to the poor, but to the one whose parents have spent time on his or her upbringing. Good upbringing = good manners," she tweeted.

To which her fans replied:

The actress, who ventured onto the small screen as a judge of dance reality TV show Nach Baliye this year, feels it is "because of the growing 'maid' culture in India" that "kids are losing their etiquette and manners".

"Maids are not very educated in India and since parents don't have that much time, kids end up spending most of their time with the maids. Therefore, a lot of the upbringing of these kids comes from the maids instead of the parents. They look, they see and they absorb. That's my theory," she added.

A fruitful discussion which brought about a lot of positive response on the online micro-blogging website:
