Sara Ali Khan is currently busy promoting her upcoming film, Love Aaj Kal. The film also stars Kartik Aaryan and is slated to hit the screens on Valentine’s Day. Recently, the trailer of the film was launched and Sara was brutally trolled for her expression in a particular scene where she is seen telling Kartik, "Tum mujhe tang karne lage ho."
Many memes were made on this scene and Sara was widely criticised for the same. In a recent interview with Film Companion, the Simmba actress opened up on dealing with trolls and how it all affected her.
She said, "I don't mind being trolled for being fat. I don't mind if you troll me for wearing a cap. But I am here to act. That is my job. That is my profession. That is serious. So, when I am trolled for that, suddenly, with all the confidence still intact, it is harder for me to sit there and say ignore the trolls. For the first time, it actually kind of hurts. It hit me."

Talking about the filming of the scene, she further added, "We were not allowed to see the monitor. So, I had no idea what it was looking like. I’ve spoken to Imtiaz sir about this and what’s also happened is the fact that I don’t look good in that. When it comes to trolling for overacting, I’ll be honest with you...not only was I acutely aware of what my character had to feel but Imtiaz sir made me feel exactly what Zoe had to feel at in that point of time."
''That was not a ham shot on our part. I was really crying. I felt like how Zoe would have been feeling at that moment in time. I did what came to me organically at that point in time,'' she added.
Meanwhile, this is Sara's third film after Kedarnath and Simmba. She has bagged her fourth film - Atrangi Re - with Akshay Kumar and Dhanush.
