Actor Kareena Kapoor Khan says that those who troll celebrities online are simply bored sitting at home without a job. She says that they are simply trying to voice their opinions.
Kareena was among the slate of ‘star kids’ who were trolled heavily online after the death of Sushant Singh Rajput. From the name of her son Taimur to the family she comes from, Kareena often has had to face rude comments on her Instagram page.
However, in an interview to The Quint, Kareena said that the comments should not be considered ‘trolling’. “I just feel that the lockdown and pandemic have caused a lot of chaos in people’s minds and we have a lot of time on our hands. So people are just over-discussing, over-analysing, over-trolling things. Everyone is all over the place. Everyone is sitting at home, lot of people are without jobs. One shouldn’t even look at it as trolling. I guess everybody is just bored and wants to say something,” she said.
“I think we are also here to spread peace and positivity. The idea is that everyone should just be happy in their space and not get into each others’ hair. If trolling makes someone happy then so be it,” she added.
Kareena had previously also talked about those criticising ‘nepotistic stars’. “21 years of working would not have happened with just nepotism. It is not possible. I can take a long list out of superstars’ children for whom it’s not been able to happen that way,” she had said in an interview to journalist Barkha Dutt.
“The audience has made us, nobody else has made us. The same people pointing fingers, they are only making these nepotistic stars. Aap jaa re ho na film dekhne? Mat jao (You are going to watch the films, right? Don’t go). Nobody has forced you. So I don’t understand it. I find this whole discussion is completely weird,” she had said.
