At some point in our lives, we all have wished to live a life like the celebs. But as they say the grass looks greener on the other side, similarly, the celebs too, don’t have it easy and their life isn’t a cakewalk as we expect it to be. Especially in the age of social media, where one tweet or post can land you in the midst of trolls. No matter what they do or they don’t do, if they speak or remain silent, where they go or don’t go; in simple words, there’s no easy way for celebrities. But sometimes, celebs take it in their hands and hit back with a befitting reply to the trolls. Television’s ideal bahu, Hina Khan, who has been the target of social media toxicity several times, knows exactly how to deal with them.

Known for her brazen personality, Hina Khan gives no second thought in calling out the trolls and she speaks her mind without mincing her words. Recently, Hina had commented on the ongoing Sushant Singh Rajput death case and Rhea Chakraborty. Just like Sushant, Hina too, had no Godfather in the industry and was an outsider when she had embarked on her journey of becoming a household name with her TV shows and OTT releases. Since Sushant’s demise, everyone is fighting for the right cause, #JusticeForSushant and Hina had expressed her views on the media focus on the case.
In an interview with the Hindustan Times, Hina Khan had expressed her views on the media attention on Sushant Singh Rajput’s case and had said, “We are all fighting for the right cause- Justice for Sushant- but it doesn’t have to be this way. Since the last few weeks, all that every channel talk about is the Sushant Singh Rajput’s death investigation. I am not saying don’t talk about it but have a balanced view. In our country, there are so many other important issues that the media needs to focus on including the Assam floods, rising number of Covid-19 patients, domestic violence, rapes etc.” Speaking about the trial of Rhea Chakraborty, Hina had continued, “At least, let the CBI investigate and come to a conclusion. You may damage her career forever with accusations. She might not be able to face anyone.”
Hina Khan’s comment on Rhea Chakraborty didn’t go well with some netizens and soon, she became a target of trolls. But when one of Hina’s fans requested the actress to refrain from commenting on the issue, she made her clarification and said she will ‘always stand by the truth’. Replying to her fan, Hina wrote, “I always stand by the truth and want my fans to stand with me for the truth, together! If we believe each other we shall never fear these trolls or bots. I had, have and will always have my point of view. Without fear. Because truth gives you that power! Jai Hind.” Sharing screenshots of her exact quote, Hina tweeted, "My Exact quote n article in image below! Reading in between the lines can never portray what I intended to say I never mince my words n hv always been upfront abt my views. Bcoz I believe n support da law, I don’t judge before a judgement is passed by da law. That’s all Jai Hind."

Hina Khan’s beau, Rocky Jaiswal too, has come out in support of his ladylove, retweeted her quote and said that it is not right to hate others without even reading and understanding their side. Rocky tweeted, “While we want fairness n justice for someone who deserved it n was probably denied. If we hate others without even reading n understanding their side, how are we different? We shouldn’t be swayed by hate but support each other as the law finds #JusticeForSushantSinghRajput!”
The demise of Sushant Singh Rajput by suicide has paved way for a debate on nepotism and has created a furore about how outsiders, without a Godfather, are treated in the industry. Agreeing that there is bias and the outsiders are misjudged on their talent while the TV actors are looked down upon by the film industry, Hina Khan, in an interview with the Mid-Day a few weeks back, had said, "He had paved the way for all of us to dream big. As TV actors, we are looked down on. We may deliver over-the-top performances on television, but one shouldn’t judge us on that. It is the requirement of the medium."
