Kritika Kamra, during an interaction with a leading daily, spoke at length about being trolled for posting a bikini-clad photo on her Instagram page.
Kritika is known for her roles in the shows Kitani Mohabbat Hai and Prem Ya Paheli-Chandrakanta.
The actor recently posted some pictures of herself in a bikini on her Instagram feed, and while she got a lot of compliments, one of the pictures was subject to many offensive comments. However, Kritika isn’t letting the negativity ruin her day. “It’s my Instagram page and I can put up whatever I want. I wanted to put up a photo in a bikini, so I did. I wasn’t affected by the comments, as I had turned off my notifications, which is a good feature. You are never bothered then. Bascially, people just need a reason to talk. I won’t lie — nasty comments do affect you, especially once you have read them. Any girl in a bikini attracts certain comments about her body, shape, etc.”
She has rarely been shot in bold looks. When asked why she posted the pictures, the actor says, “It was a beautiful day. I was out with my friends. We clicked a couple of shots and I decided to put them up online without a thought. The photo turned out really well. I wasn’t thinking about the reactions. The comments don’t bother me, but they were bothering people around me, so I read some of them.”
The human spirit needs places where nature has not been rearranged by the hand of man. This trip took me to places that were unbelievably beautiful, some untouched, away from the maddening crowds and noise. And I’m so glad I did this. We underestimate nature.. the influence it has on us. I can’t describe it, all I can say is GO. Whenever you get a chance, go to some place far away and let it work it’s magic. . . . . #thailand #amazingthailand #krabi #limestonecliffs #magicalsky #deepbluesea #travel #travelphotography #carpediem #makingmemories #youonlyliveonce
The actor admits that she has matured a lot by virtue of her profession. “Sometimes, you are really tempted, because you want some peace of mind and want to give them a piece of your mind, but then you realise it is not worth it. I have learnt that over time. If this had happened a couple of years ago, I would have reacted, tagged and replied to the trolls. But today, I’ve reached a point in my life where I don’t have time to deal with rubbish. I don’t want to school everybody,” she says.
