Speaking along the same lines, Fardeen Khan mentioned that even he has been a victim of trolling multiple times, which is very unfortunate. However, he added that one needs to develop thick skin and call out the people for their wrongdoings. In Fardeen's words:

“I have been a victim of trolling myself. It’s unfortunate signs of the times. It is what it is. You have got to develop some thick skin and when it’s wrong, you need to speak up and call it out. It reveals more about the people trolling than the person being trolled.”
