Television actress Devoleena Bhattacharjee recently got married to her beau, Shahnawaz Sheikh. The pictures from their pre-wedding festivities and wedding had gone viral on social media. Devoleena hardly spoke about her personal life and her wedding to Shahnawaz came as a surprise to everyone. While many congratulated the Saath Nibhaana Saathiya actress on her nuptial life, a section of people trolled her for the inter-faith marriage. Now, in an interview, she has reacted to the trolls.
Reacting to the negative comments on her marriage, Devoleena told Times of India, “Who the hell are these people and who knows them? Kaun ho tum to comment on my life and choices? The problem is no matter whom you marry, you will be trolled. If you marry a rich guy, you will be called a gold digger, you marry a good-looking guy, they will tell you that it’s not a great match, you marry someone who has a heart of gold but is average looking, they will say,’ Devo, kya match dhoondha?’ Ye log doosre ki khushi bardaasht hi nahi kar sakte. If they can’t respect a woman on social media, I wonder how they may be treating their mother and sisters back home. Unko meri itni fiqr hai ki they sent me pictures of fridge and suitcase. Instead, they should pray ki hum hamesha khush rahein.”
She added, “Trolling amounts to harassment and can have an adverse effect on a marriage. Had it not been for my husband stopping me from replying to these trolls, I would have given it back in my own style to everyone on social media.”
Devoleena Bhattacharjee and Shahnawaz Sheikh tied the knot on December 14. They are planning to host a reception for their industry friends next month.
