Shweta Bachchan On Not Being Real Due To Fear Of Being Trolled, 'If You've A Problem, Don't Follow'

Amitabh Bachchan’s granddaughter, Navya Naveli Nanda, is back with the second season of her podcast, What The Hell Navya. She, along with her mother, Shweta Bachchan, and grandmother, Jaya Bachchan, have been discussing many prominent issues in our society, especially pertaining to women. Now, the trio indulged in a conversation about social media trolling and how it affects them.

Shweta Bachchan believes celebrities should hit back at trolls

In the latest episode of her podcast, What The Hell Navya, Shweta Bachchan said that celebrities should raise their voices against cancel culture. She further added that celebrities should not hesitate to call out people, and instead, they should be authentic without the fear of judgment. She said:

“Turn around and say, ‘Don’t follow me if you have a problem.’ Give it back, if you keep quiet and just allow things, people will say, ‘We can say whatever we like to this famous person and they have nothing to say back.’ No one is reacting authentically anymore because you’re so worried about getting trolled. You can’t say this, you can’t say that…”

Shweta Bachchan on the fear of getting trolled

Speaking along the same lines, Shweta recalled the good old days and shared that earlier it was easier for the celebrities to be themselves. However, now if a celebrity gets trolled, they immediately give an apology or change their original opinion. Shweta further claimed that they can not even have an open discussion anymore and said:

“It was quite simple in our time. I am not saying there weren’t the wrong kinds of labelling being done, but it was far easier to be yourself. Today, nobody wants to be cancelled. If a celebrity is trolled or cancelled, they will give an apology and reverse their original quote or opinion. That’s just perpetuating. You’re not even open to a discussion.”

Jaya Bachchan dares the trolls to show their faces

Jaya Bachchan also talked about the constant trolling she receives on a daily basis and gave it back to the trolls. The veteran actress said that those who troll others are bitter people and don't have an identity. Jaya further dared the trolls to show their faces and said:

“Those people don’t have an identity, they are bitter people. If you have courage, comment on actual issues and show your faces.”

“What kind of pleasure are you getting by mimicking anyone badly?”
