Actor Nushrratt Bharuccha, who currently features in the recently-released ‘Janhit Mein Jaari’, saw a barrage of hateful and filthy comments directed towards her after the first teaser of the movie was released last month. The actress plays the role of a condom seller in the film. In a recent interview, Nushrratt opened up about how the vile comments affected her.

‘Janhit Mein Jaari’ is about a young girl in a small town in Madhya Pradesh, who takes up the challenging task of selling condoms in her hometown. The teaser for the film was released in May and soon after, Nushrratt says she saw filthy messages on social media. She later uploaded a video on Instagram responding to the trolls.

In the interview, she says the trolling affected her whole family. “The messages were so filthy that these reactions not only affected me but my entire family and friends. I couldn’t sleep for two nights thinking about their messages.” The actor said she initially thought of forgetting it and moving on but later decided to give it back to the trolls.

She recounted, “The next day I thought should I just ignore and move one? I thought I just can be thick-skinned and forget about it. Then I thought… I live in a democratic country, I too enjoy the freedom of speech then why should I not share my piece of mind?”

‘Janhit Mein Jaari’ was released on June 10 and only earned Rs 42,00,000 on day one. The film also stars Pavail Gulati, Annu Kapoor, Anud Dhaka and Paritosh Tripathi.
