Take note, Divyanka Tripathi fans! Once again, the actress has shared an important lesson on how to deal with haters.
Recently, the makers of Yeh Hai Mohabbatein decided to add another twist to the show. This showed Divyanka as a Haryanvi woman , Shanno, who enters her in-laws' house as a maid to keep an eye on her husband and his conspirators, Simmi and Param. The new look had the actress donning a long ghunghat (veil), a traditional nose-ring, rings and a kada. There were reports that it was inspired by veteran actress Zeenat Aman's look in Satyam Shivam Sundaram.
Much before her Haryanvi avatar went on air, Divyanka took to Instagram to share two pictures of it on Instagram and wrote: "Do not miss her tonight! Discover a riot behind this veil...Tonight at 7:30 pm on #YehHaiMohabbatein @StarPlus. #ShannoTeraSwagger". As soon as this post went up, a lot of her followers came forward to share their opinion on the same. While many applauded her, there were a few who decided to troll her for turning a few shades darker than her skin tone for the role. Pathetic, disgusting, and many such other words were used by trolls to express their disappointment. Many of them also felt that it was humiliating and classist towards dark skinned people. Do not miss her tonight! Discover a riot behind this veil... Tonight at 7:30pm on #YehHaiMohabbatein @StarPlus. #ShannoTeraSwagger A post shared by Divyanka Tripathi Dahiya (@divyankatripathidahiya) on Jan 16, 2018 at 4:20am PST
Usually, celebs turn a deaf ear to people like these, but there was no way Divyanka was following the trend. The actress got so furious after reading these comments that she gave them fitting replies. Responding to a follower, she wrote: "If I chose to be dark... How's it pathetic? Do you find it pathetic? You guys don't even think before bashing! Which Indian actor will voluntarily choose to look dark on screen? It's not usual!!!" And no, she didn't stop there, in another comment she wrote: "Know me first before judging! I'm doing that make-up myself! Everyday! So please... Watch the track, understand and respect instead of writing baseless provocative comments!"
Isn't that inspiring? If only we all had the courage to face trolls the way Divyanka did, there'd be none left by now. 496 Shares
