Actress Soha Ali Khan, who has been a victim of social media trolls and criticism, says it does not hurt or upset her.
Soha, who is the daughter of Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi and actress Sharmila Tagore, was trolled by many who questioned her faith after she visited the Golden Temple and a Ganpati pandal to seek blessings ahead of the release of her film “31st October”.
Asked if social media trolls affect her, Soha told IANS: “No. Specially from someone I don’t know, what they say about me (does not matter). So I don’t get hurt or upset. I wonder why people get so hecked up and use such bad language and get so personal, because I don’t know you and you don’t know me.”
The 38-year-old actress also said a person should be allowed to exercise freedom on social media.
“I share my views on social media. Everyone have their rights to share on social media. It’s a democracy, we all have freedom of speech,” she added.
On the silver screen, Soha was recently seen in the latest release “31st October”, based on the aftermath of the 1984 Sikh riots that happened following Indira Gandhi’s assassination.
