Kiara Advani won hearts with her performance in Satyaprem Ki Katha co-starring Kartik Aaryan. It was her first film post marrying Sidharth Malhotra in February this year. During the promotion of Satyaprem Ki Katha, the actress shared a picture from the film's set. Netizens were instantly reminded of Kiara's wedding photos and she had to face harsh trolling and criticism. Now, in a recent interview with an entertainment portal, she reacted to the trolls and how it affected her.
Kiara told, "For the first time, I felt a sense of overbearing, overpowering me with social media during the time when Satyaprem Ki Katha was coming out. Because I was just married…. I felt like there was very weird negativity going on about certain scenes ‘Oh isne yeh kyun kiya hai, woh kyun kiya hai.' Maybe it was to do with 'Oh now she is married' all of that. I just felt like 'Wait! What just happened here? This is all too new for me because, on one hand, people troll you for very ridiculous things, but now people were trolling you because you are a married actor, and people expect you to say or do certain things. That got to me slightly. I was not able to brush it off. It was really affecting me."
She further credited Sidharth for helping her deal with trolls and calm her down. "There was a little bit of negativity that really got to me and I didn't even discuss it with my husband. I was like I don't want to talk about it because the minute I talk about it then I am going deeper into it so let's not. He had also seen it on his own and did not bring it on because he didn't want to make a big deal of it. He was the one who explained it to me. He said ‘Look there will always be these negative trollers…but if you’re gonna give so much importance to this, be sitting at home and crying and behaving like s**t has hit the roof right now. What's wrong with you? You don't know them. They don't know you. These could be like certain fans who did not like we got married. Just let it be. Why are you getting into it?' I realised if he is so mature about it, why am I sitting and feeling all of these things? Thank God I have somebody who's got wisdom, maturity and experience in this matter to tell me don't give attention to this stuff," Kiara shared.
Kiara and Sidharth tied the knot on February 7 at Jaisalmer's Suryagarh Palace. It was an intimate affair with family members and close friends in attendance.
