Kkusum star Nausheen Ali Sardar’s photos on Instagram have gone viral — but not for the best reasons. The not-so-positive response around these photos has really upset her. The actor shares that she has been trolled badly, with comments saying that she looks unrecognisable, that she might have gone under the knife, that she has put on weight, that she has used filters, and so on. A hurt Nausheen says, “If someone expects me to look the same as I did 15 years ago, then something is wrong with that someone.”
The actor, therefore, decided to get back at “all the negativity” with another photo on the same social media platform and wrote: “Dear troller- IF U HAVE AN OPINION...MY ADVISE IS....EAT IT FOR BREAKFAST LUNCH AND DINNER I follow a diet-called EAT RIGHT... NOT ALLOWED CRAP...”
Nausheen, who’ll soon be seen on a new show, says that she doesn’t seek cheap publicity and prefers talking her heart out. “Everybody looks different when they grow up, so why do people expect me to remain the same? Don’t people groom, use photo technologies and filters to look different and beautiful in photos? If everyone else is doing it, then why can’t I?” she asks, adding how much the trolling has got to her. “My personal life has gone for a toss. I’m extremely hurt. All this negativity is very depressing. I’m born to an Iranian mother and Punjabi father, and my struggles with weight is never-ending. I have to stay in shape all the time, so at times things are not in my hand,” says the actor, known for her shows such as Beend Banoongaa Ghodi Chadhunga, The Adventures of Hatim and Ganga.
According to Nausheen, such things affect her family and she is concerned, especially for her mother and 12-year-old nephew. “My father is no more and I’m closest to my mother. Imagine how such things would affect her. Our extended family and her friends will ask her questions and how embarrassing can that be? How will my nephew deal with questions from his school friends about her aunt?” she says.
The actor shares that after a point, she couldn’t take the negativity any more and she wanted to stop random people from posting unpleasant comments and decided to remove a few of her photos. “I have nothing to hide about myself. If I had to, then I wouldn’t have posted those photos in the first place,” says Nausheen. “But that doesn’t mean people [can] comment anything distasteful. I didn’t want such negativity to affect my self-esteem. Also, I’m relatively new on Insta and didn’t know how to go about [blocking trolls]. I’m a little technically challenged. So I deleted all those photos and then wrote a message. Since then, things are better.”
