Neena Gupta has made a lot of buzz with the release of her autobiography Sach Kahun Toh this month. From emotional recollections to shocking industry revelations, the actress has revealed it all. Of course, feathers have been ruffled which explains some of the recent comments on Neena’s feed.
It all started with the actress’s recent meeting with film lyricist and poet, Gulzar Sahab. Neena had visited him to share her book and also posted a video from the meet. It went viral on social media over the weekend simply for being absolutely adorable. There is a certain warmth in the way Neena and the lyrics maestro are interacting in the video and it did not go unnoticed. Within minutes of posting, people started showering the video with love and heart-warming comments.
Sadly, there were also those who could not look past Neena’s outfit, which by the way was a perfectly normal, breezy cotton co-ord set. One of these Instagram users wrote, “Gulzar sahab k pass aap gaye the wo time aapko saadi pehen kr jana chahiye tha…sorry….kyuki Gulzar sahab Gulzar sahab hai.” Another one added to the regressive shitshow and wrote, “Age ke hisab se chalo madam.” Then a third one wrote, “Ye sab gandgi hai aunty ji!!! Western culture bilkul kharab hai! Or aap ye Jante hue bhi inka anusarn kar rahe ho! Toh aaj ke bache apni history or religion ke bar mai kya hi jaan na pasand karenge!? Jab aap jaise log maail se bhari western culture ki chadar ohd lenge.“
But guess what? The ever-so-fierce Neena does not give two hoots about the comments and refuses to think of it as an attempt to troll her. Speaking about the same, she shared in a recent interview, “I fail to understand when anybody writes that I have been trolled for this. It’s plain rubbish. What’s the definition of ‘trolling’? Doesn’t it mean that several people are criticising you? Look at the amount of praises I’ve received. Should I really even bother about just 2 or 4 people?”
When asked if she would like to say anything to these detractors, she nonchalantly added, “Why? Why should I give any importance to 2 to 4 people when they comprise of just a scanty per cent which is in contrast to those who’ve loved me for this?”
Sach Kahun Toh, we are mighty impressed. What about you?
