It’s humiliating! Taapsee Pannu on facing trolls – A new show called Troll Police is all set to address the issue of cyberbullying and makes trolls accountable for their online behaviour. They will bring the celebrity who has been victimised and the troll face to face. The first episode will see Taapsee Pannu taking on Ashish, a student from Lucknow who’s been trolling her on social media. When the actress had posted pictures of herself in a floral bikini before the release of Judwaa 2, Ashish had not only commented on her attire but also compared her to a porn star! “I think with the power that social media has given us, it is so easy to mock someone nowadays. What people don’t understand is that it can genuinely crush someone’s confidence. Just because a female does not abide by the conventional rules, people like to call her names which is highly upsetting. I want to convey the message through the show to youngsters out there — do not use internet anonymity to shed the veneer of decency,” says Taapsee.
When she met Ashish, she said, “It’s humiliating! After achieving so much for yourself as an independent woman, this is how you get appreciated by the men of our society. After reading all these comments, sometimes I feel that I have opted for the wrong profession. Going forward, if you see any of your friend or relative trolling someone, then please share this experience with them.”
