Television star Sangita Ghosh has hit back at those who have trolled and criticised her dupatta scene, which went viral this week.
The scene from TV show ‘Swaran Ghar’ saw the dupatta of Ghosh’s character getting entangled and leading her to getting choked. While some viewers found the scene hilarious, others trolled the show for its unreal execution. One to criticise was fellow television star, Kamya Punjabi. Sharing the scene on her Twitter, Punjabi mentioned this was the reason why TV content was being frowned at.
Ghosh took to social media to respond to the ones that criticised the scene. In an interview with Telly Buzz, she said, “I don’t think this is true. Kamya did not mean to troll, I am sure, she did not bash. Everyone has the right to an opinion, that was her opinion and I respect that. I absolutely have no hard feelings for her. With social media coming in, we’re more aware of what people think. Bashing and trolling has always been there but earlier, due to the absence of social media, it was done amidst ourselves. But now, with social media coming in, it has come out in public and everybody makes mistakes. Our show ‘Swaran Ghar’ is very progressive. Even our dialogues are very conversational. This was the first time we thought of experimenting but it went wrong. But now we know, the makers know, so we will take care in the future.”
Asked how she felt about the scene going viral, Ghosh said, “I laughed hard. My first reaction on set was, “we are going viral”. Honestly, I do not even check my social media much. My husband and my team informed me and I just laughed it off. It does not really bother me much, we gave the trolls some fodder to laugh. And somewhere I feel nice that people did not like it, to me, it means they are watching and loving the show, which is why they voiced their opinions.”
