Protected by the veil of anonymity, on-line trolls typically goal celebrities and say the nastiest of issues about them. Bhumi Pednekar admitted that when she began out in Bollywood, the negativity would get to her. However, over time, she realised that her happiness lay in her personal fingers.

Bhumi mentioned that if she paid heed to the one unfavourable remark amongst so many extra compliments, she would be ‘really stupid’. She added that she has learnt to shrug off the trolling.

On Kareena Kapoor Khan’s chat show What Women Want, Bhumi mentioned, “When I had started off, I would get affected by it because there are people that don’t have the nicest things to say and you don’t really understand the medium very well. You are like, ‘Oh my God, why are people getting so personal?’ But now, I don’t really care. I have realised that my happiness depends on me.”

“If I listen to that one bad opinion then I have to be really stupid because I have ten people telling me really good things. Maybe early on, I tried looking for validation through my Instagram or social media but now I don’t do it. I feel like our world is actually very large, especially for actors. When you see a film that does so well at the box office, it doesn’t really tally with your social media numbers. Or vice versa. I don’t take it seriously,” she added.

Currently, Bhumi is capturing in Dehradun for Badhaai Do, a standalone sequel to 2018 hit Badhaai Ho. She will play a PT instructor within the movie, which is directed by Harshvardhan Kulkarni and in addition stars Rajkummar Rao as a cop. She has been sharing photos from the units on Instagram, introducing their characters, Sumi and Shardul.
