Social media trolls don’t affect me anymore: Anushka Sharma

New Delhi, July 19 (IANS) Actress Anushka Sharma, who has been a victim to social media trolls several times, says it doesn’t bother her anymore.

Anushka has been criticised on social media sometimes for her looks and sometimes over her reported on-off relationship with Test cricket captain Virat Kohli. She has faced it all. She was also once called a “bad omen” for being by her rumoured beau Kohli’s side during the ICC Cricket World Cup semi-final in Melbourne.

Does she get affected?

“If you are chauvinistic mind, you will not be able to take the fact there is a strong, successful girl… I have been trolled multiple times and it doesn’t affect me anymore,” Anushka told IANS over phone.

The “Band Baaja Baaraat” star, 28, says that trollers who go after actresses just want to feel better by calling them “dumb or stupid”.

“That probably gives them a satisfaction that makes them feel like they are more intelligent. So, I think it’s something that is very sad and which reflects their social upbringing and their personalities,” she said.

But Anushka, who is currently riding high on the success of her latest release film “Sultan” starring Salman Khan, says she prefers not to respond to trolls.

“One cannot respond to these things seriously because it’s just a person from who is writing something because one must have had a bad day, is pissed off, had a fight with the girlfriend or maybe got dumped… The easy way to act out is to strike somebody who wouldn’t probably answer back to you and wouldn’t fall down to you level,” she said.

The “NH10” star finds it really sad that the trollers usually attack girls “thinking she is a softer target”.

Recently, filmmaker Vikram Bhatt took it upon himself to slam actor Kamaal R. Khan for his derogatory tweets against actresses.
