Malaika Arora, renowned for her iconic Dil Se song “Chaiyya Chaiyya,” recently asserted that criticism and trolling have been integral to her career. Despite often making headlines for dating Arjun Kapoor, who is younger than her, and facing ridicule for her 'duck walk', she remains unfazed. In an interview, when questioned about her response to trolling, she stated, “Throughout my career, I’ve thrived despite criticism and trolling for my choices, appearance, and persona. It's been a constant, making me immune to it.”

Malaika Arora shared her approach to handling negative comments on her social media posts, stating, “I will respond to trolls if I feel it's necessary, especially if they target someone close to me. Otherwise, I won’t waste my time, energy, or sanity on it. It's not worth it.”

She further emphasised, “I have other priorities and concerns to attend to. I don't feel the need to justify my personal or professional life to anyone. I don’t owe explanations to anybody.” However, she cautioned against interpreting her silence as complacency, stating, “I choose to maintain a certain level of silence because it suits me. I prefer avoiding unnecessary noise to preserve my sanity, and I find happiness in that.”
