A massive social media following comes with the added burden of hateful comments from strangers on the internet. This is also true for our Bollywood actresses. Many Bollywood actresses sway the audience with their statements. However, they occasionally fail to impress some netizens and become troll material for them. There have been moments when fans have expressed dissatisfaction with celebrities’ public statements. Here are some prominent Indian actresses who have been heavily trolled for public comments.
Richa Chadha is one of the Indian actresses who began her career as a model and is well-known for her versatile roles. She has portrayed various roles in films such as Gangs of Wasseypur, Masaan, Fukrey, and others. She is currently dominating the news due to her viral tweet in reaction to a tweet by Northern Army Commander Lt General Upendra Dwivedi. Richa Chaddha mentioned the 2020 clash between China and India in her tweet. When the Lt General indicated that the army is ready to obey orders to recapture POK, she replied with, ‘Galwan says Hi.’ Furthermore, this did not sit well with many people, and netizens began criticizing her. In addition, Bollywood star Akshay Kumar also tweeted against her and said that we should not be ungrateful to the armed forces. Even now, Richa is facing criticism for her remark.
Alia Bhatt is an Indian actress famous for her performances in Hindi films. She has received numerous awards throughout her career. She is also one of India’s highest-paid actors, having placed on Forbes India’s Celebrity 100 list since 2014. Furthermore, when new mom Alia Bhatt said, ‘Don’t like me, don’t watch me,’ she raised quite a controversy. She was also a victim of trolling on social media. This occurred just before the release of Brahmastra, and a few internet users called for a boycott of the film as a result. Furthermore, in response to the nepotism trolls, the actor stated that it is not her fault that she was born to parents who work in the film industry. She went on to say that if her children want to be actors, they will have to work hard to prove their worth. She was last seen in the movie Darlings.
Rashmika Mandanna is an Indian actress who primarily appears in Telugu and Kannada films, with a few exceptions in Hindi and Tamil. She was most recently seen in the Hindi film Goodbye this year. Rashmika made headlines after she said that she had received hate from trolls. The Pushpa actress has also been the target of trolls on several other occasions earlier. She recently became the target of the media when she stated that she had not yet seen Rishab Shetty’s Kantara. A few netizens even criticized her for forgetting her origins. Rashmika Mandanna, on the other hand, took to social media a few days after getting online trolls and wrote a lengthy note. Furthermore, she described herself as a punching bag for many trolls and negativity on the internet.
Ananya Panday is one of the Indian actresses who are popular for her performances in Hindi films. She is the famous actor Chunky Panday’s daughter. Her performances in SOTY 2 and Pati Patni Aur Woh received widespread appreciation. Similarly, Ananya Panday’s “struggle” comment has gone viral on the internet. It happened during the Round Table with other stars, and it called for a lot of trolling. Furthermore, the actress has always been criticized and has been the target of trolls on multiple occasions. She is only a few films into her career and already has a massive Instagram following. However, social media trolls never leave her and keep coming for her no matter what she says or does.
Kangana Ranaut is a Hindi film actress and filmmaker from India. She is also well-known for her work in female-led films, for which she has won multiple awards. Furthermore, the Government of India awarded the Padma Shri award to her in 2020. Kangana is always the victim of trolls frequently on the internet. She recently posted about ‘What a woman wears is her business.’ Netizens reminded her of statements she made about Urmila Matondkar and other celebrities. She is also famous for her controversial remarks.
Janhvi Kapoor is one of the Indian actresses who primarily appears in Hindi films. She is most famous for her roles in films such as Dhadak and the Gunjan Saxena biopic. In addition, Janhvi Kapoor said in an interview, ‘I Don’t Need Fame, I’m Already Famous!’. For this statement, people also label her as a “snob” and other derogatory terms. It’s a reality that no matter what you say, if you come from a filmy background, it will most certainly be amended by others. However, it is also true that what celebrities say annoys fans, with no need for them to change their comments.
Trolling is not a new phenomenon for Bollywood celebs in the age of social media. You are probably wrong if you believe that being famous makes life easier. When a person achieves stardom, every move they make is under the observation of the netizens. Celebrities don’t have it easy, especially when it comes to making public statements and being a victim of online trolling on social media.
