As glamorous as their lives may seem through the camera lens, the truth is that celebrities are more prone to trolling than the rest of us. Sadly, it doesn't stop there. Their families, too, are under constant media scrutiny. Look at Mira Rajput Kapoor or little Aaradhya Bachchan, for instance. They aren't celebrities in the conventional sense of the word, heck, Aaradhya is only seven years old, and they are all over social media for no newsworthy reason.
The most common example of a troubled pap-and-celebrity-kid relationship, after Suhana Khan, is Ajay Devgn and Kajol's daughter Nysa Devgan. It feels like the teenager has been a target for trolls ever since we first learned about her. Ajay has stepped up in his kid's defence on multiple occasions slamming netizens for body-shaming a 14-year-old girl. But the trolling doesn't seem to stop.
Well, enough is enough. In a recent interview with Deccan Chronicle, Ajay finally gave a piece of his mind to people trolling his little princess and said, "Jo bhi yeh karte hain, unka mindset bakwaas hota hai (the mindset of people who do these things is bullshit). So we too, don’t bother about all that, nor do we pay any heed to such nonsensical comments made through fake identities."

Recalling the incident from earlier this year when Nysa had stepped out in a mini sweatshirt dress and received flak from the web world, Ajay said, "She is just a 14-year-old and I feel, at times, people forget that and talk rubbish. She was wearing such a long shirt and she was also wearing shorts. Now because of the length of the shirt, her shorts weren’t visible and the kid got trolled for that,” in an interview with Hindustan Times. The fact that a father has to explain to the world why his daughter wore what she wore is the saddest thing ever!
"I don’t know what kind of people these are and because of them, we are paying the price. I request the paparazzi to at least leave the children alone," said the actor. Ajay and Kajol have two kids together - Nysa (14) and a son Yug (8). "Why are they paying the price for their famous parents? I don’t think any child is okay with paparazzi. They want their space. They want to not dress up every time they step out, so it’s very sad when such things happen," he added.
Currently, Nysa Devgan is studying in Singapore and according to her parents, has no plan to act in Bollywood as of now. Ajay Devgn, on the other hand, was last seen in De De Pyaar De opposite Tabu and Rakul Preet.
