Actor Shruti Haasan, who is active in Hindi, Telugu and Tamil films, says there was a time when getting trolled on health issues hurt her and that it doesn’t bother her anymore. Speaking to Deccan Chronicle, she mentioned how she hadn’t given enough time to herself in the last 10 years and comments by trolls affected her in the past.

She said: “Honestly, I have not been mocked down recently, but there are a lot of people who say ‘oh she is getting married’, ‘she has become fat’, all of this. At that point, it really hurts, because I knew I had health issues. I knew that I have never ever taken enough time in 10 years to take care of myself, and every human being deserves that. I needed some love and silence and self-introspection to really be me.”
