In a recent interview with India Today, Ashish Vidyarthi opened up about the trolling he received after getting married to Rupali. Talking about the same, the brilliant actor shared that he read many derogatory words, such as buddha, khusat, and many others. Talking about the same, Ashish shared that the people who are dropping such mean comments are giving the same fear to themselves as everyone will get old one day. He then questioned that if someone wants companionship, why they should not choose it? Talking about the same, Asish shared:

"I read words like buddha, khusat and many more derogatory words. What is interesting is that it is a comment that each one of us, whoever is saying that, we are passing on others who are older than us, and at the same time, we are giving that fear to ourselves, because each one of us, hopefully, will become old. We are telling ourselves, ‘hey, listen, don’t do things just because you’re old.’ So, does that mean you’re supposed to die unhappy? If somebody wants companionship, why should he not."

Questioning the trolls, the actor then shared that he made a personal choice and married a person who also wanted to have a family. He also added that he was shocked by the outcome of his second marriage and the trolling around it. Elaborating on the same, Ashish then stated:

"That person is making a personal choice, to get married, legally, with another person, who’s also keen to have a family and live with love. It’s a thing in which each one of us should actually be supporting each other rather than puncturing somebody else. That is something I did not expect and was shocked because throughout my life I have added value."
