Looking at a celebrity, we often envy their glamourous life, but all that glitters is not gold. A lot of dedication, hard work, and sleepless nights make them a star, but with stardom, there is a heavy price these celebs pay. As a public figure, a celeb hardly enjoys a private life. Whatever they do, becomes news. Whether it is family dinner, vacation, breakups, or patch-ups, they are constantly under the radar of paparazzi and become a victim of trolls. On such celebrity, who has been taking up all the trolls with a brave face is television actress, Chahatt Khanna.

Hitting back at the troll, Chahatt had shared an Insta story, “Witches and bitches who can never get love, bf or family in life, forget about kids, they will never understand that kids a blessing and not a liability, or target to put a woman down.” In another Insta story, she had written, “No I am not running away, just that I’ll be busy with work, for a few days.”

In another interview with the Zoom, Chahatt Khanna had revealed how and when she realised the term ‘single mother’ as insulting. Chahatt had stated, "It is a very insulting term, and I realised this much later. There is a term called Milf which these guys, doggers use for women who are elder to them, married, single parent, single mom, divorced and they think people like them are good to have fun with. This is a hard-hitting fact of our society which I just discovered a few days back and I was shattered when I came to know this. This is what happens when she steps out of her marriage."
