Nimki Mukhiya actress Bhumika Gurung was recently asked by some of the netizens about her nationality. The TV actress in the comments received by her on the social networking platforms, asked her if she is a Nepali. Giving a befitting reply to this trolling about her nationality, she posted an image which explained her family lineage, which spoke about grandparents and how they served the country. Later she deleted the post. In conversation with ETimes she spoke about those trolling her about her nationality after Nepal’s PM KP Sharma Oli's statement on Lord Ram and Ayodhya, hit the internet.
She said, “So, ever since the Prime Minister of Nepal, Mr. KP Sharma Oli had given a statement on Lord Ram and Ayodhya, I have been getting trolled on my social media… comments on my pictures and comments like I am a Nepali, Gorkhali and I should go back to my country and stuff like that. I have been getting such messages for a week now and was ignoring them. But then I thought it to be best if I give them an answer and cut it off completely.”
Adding further she said, “My grandfather has been in the Army for most of his life. So all this questions of going back to the country is quite baseless. Sometimes it can hurt anyone’s sentiments. My forefathers were of Indian nationality. It is kind of disappointing when you get such messages. It is a sad thing because logon ki mentality badalti nahi hai. Once in a while you can give back an answer.”
Bhumika Gurung adds that when COVID-19 had hit the country many North East people were attacked and bullied for the same. “Also, when the coronavirus had hit India, not much has been spoken about it, but many of the North East people were attacked and were bullied. I received many such comments from my North East fans that they are being called ‘Chinky’ because of their small eye features. They were blamed for the spreading of the coronavirus and they should go back to China and Nepal.” ALSO READ: Bhumika Gurung On Her Altercation With 'LIP-JOB' Trolls: 'It Was Time To Give It Back To Them'- EXCLUSIVE
Urging people to stop such spread of negativity as it is quite disturbing, she said, “It is very disturbing. We need to stop such negativity when the world is trying to survive a pandemic.”
Being shocked by these comments, Bhumika says, “I never faced such obnoxious comments on social media. I don’t how people started questioning my nationality.” ALSO READ: Bhumika Gurung Is Emotional About Her Show Going Off Air: 'Nimki Has Become My Identity'- EXCLUSIVE
