Sharmin has disabled the comment section of her Instagram account in response to the significant criticism she faced for her role in Heeramandi. Earlier, while interacting on the BBC Asian Network Podcast, the actress opened up about the criticism she has been facing at present, and how she coped with everything. Revealing that she has a very strong support system, Sharmin said:

“There is a lot of pressure, and sometimes it manifests in weird ways. But I have a really good support system. I think my strongest support system is my sister. She also happened to be an assistant director on the show. So, it worked out in a way where I do have my outlets where I can vent.”

Sharmin, who married Aman Mehta in November 2023, said that she is secure in her personal life and puts everything at work aside when she returns home. Moreover, SLB’s niece mentioned that she wants to prove her worth to the audience, but she isn’t going to put much pressure on it. Sharing that she is a realistic person, Sharmin said:

“In my personal life, I am secure enough today to come home to my husband and put everything that I have done at work aside. But I am not that person who’s gonna constantly put that much pressure on it. Yes, I do want to prove myself; but today I am also a realist in that way. After all, how many people’s opinions are you gonna shape or have control over.”
