Sonakshi Sinha shares her views on nepotism and trolls and how ‘life has changed for better’ after leaving Twitter

Social media can be a real buzzkill sometimes especially when people start bullying and trolling online and not everyone is there to take such harshness. Same is the case for Bollywood actress Sonaksh Sinha who quit Twitter 2 months ago and has no plans of returning to it anytime soon. The actress admits that staying away from toxic comments and negativity has changed her life for the better. In an interview, Sonakshi weighed in on the insider-outsider debate, nepotism and the backlash faced by films like Sadak 2 and Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil Girl in recent times. When asked if she missed staying away from Twitter, the actress remarked, “More than the buzz, it was a buzz kill. Twitter has become such a playing ground for negativity with people going on and on about anything and everything and in such a gutsy manner.” 

She also talked about her life being better now that she’s off it, “My life has changed for the better, it’s much cleaner, so I have no complaints. And I’ve also put my comments off on Instagram.” Weighing in on the insider-outsider debate, Sonakshi calls it a sort of ‘herd mentality’. “Nobody likes to hear abuses about themselves for what — for being actors? For being born to a particular set of parents? I’m sorry! Where’s the logic in that? It’s been blown so much out of proportion. Has anybody really counted — today there are more outsiders than so called insiders in the industry, who have made it very big and have lots of work, more than people who’re grown up in any film family. Why nobody raises that point? So, there’s a lot of misdirected anger about a lot of things, a herd mentality and people are being ‘bhadkaoed’,” the actress said adding that at the end of the day it’s the audience that make or break an actor’s career.
