Filmmaker Anurag Kashyap’s daughter Aaliyah Kashyap has a huge following on social media. Along with all the attention, also comes online trolling and Aaliyah is no stranger to such toxicity on social media. In a video, Aaliyah recently opened up about the backlash she faced for posting pictures of herself in lingerie, and how it affected her. She also shared that she got called several nasty things, and received death threats.
In a video that Aaliyah posted on her YouTube channel, she said that she is a very sensitive person, and even the smallest bit of hate affects her, so she had to come to terms with social media negativity. After sharing pictures of her in lingerie, Aaliyah received a lot of hate. “People were telling me that I should be ashamed of being Indian and posting stuff like that. People were sending me rape threats, calling me a prostitute, DMing me and asking me what my ‘rate’ was, sending me death threats, s**tting on my family. That whole incident of the picture got me a lot.”
She further added that she was constantly crying, however, she realized that she shouldn’t be as affected by the trolls. “I just realised that it doesn’t matter because these are people hiding behind their phones and have nothing better to do. I honestly just block everyone. If there is anything even remotely negative on any of my social media, I just block them because I want my social media to be a positive place,” she said.
Meanwhile, Aaliyah Kashyap will not be joining the film industry. In the video, she said that she isn’t fascinated by Bollywood, and that’s not the field that she wants to get into. ALSO READ: Anurag Kashyap’s Daughter Aaliyah Leaves Khushi Kapoor A Cheesy Comment On Her Oh-So Glamorous Photo
