, Exclusive! Mandira Bedi on trolls and haters, The World Live Breaking News Coverage & Updates IN ENGLISH

Last Dussehra, Mandira Bedi and her husband Rraj Kaushal, introduced the world to the newest member of their family — their four-year-old adopted daughter Tara. They also have a nine-year-old son, Vir. On Monday night, Mandira took to her social media page and called out trolls who were mocking and abusing her daughter. Sharing a screenshot of a message, Mandira wrote, “People like this need to be given a special mention @bollywoodforevaa. You got my attention, you piece of s**t.” To another troll, she said, “More from the model citizen. He calls himself Rajesh Tripathi, which definitely isn’t his name, because sickos like this are the biggest cowards, too, who only know how to wag their tongues behind the shield of anonymity.”
Talking about the distasteful comments on social media, which continue to anger her, Mandira says, “I have faced trolling from the time I have been on social media. Initially, I used to respond to negative comments, but I realised I was giving these haters what they were seeking — attention.”

Mandira continues. “I don’t make statements, I am not rude, and I have never used social media to attack people or to make points. I use it to spread positivity. I don’t know what struck me that I went through the comments on this one photograph of my family. It was appalling to see those nasty comments for a little child. What kind of people say such disgusting things about a harmless kid? While I normally ignore trolls and haters, these two-three messages that I saw late at night on Monday upset me, and this time, I felt the need to respond. Tara is innocent and too young to understand what happened, but it hurt me. I don’t give two hoots about nasty comments. I can laugh over them when they are about me but it’s not okay to attack my family, my children. I can’t take it. My claws will come out.”

Discussing the issue further, Mandira says, “Some of my friends said that I should have ignored the troll, but a few of them reached out to the cyber cell and to Instagram, too. His account is suspended. My blood boils at the mere thought of what that troll said about my daughter. People have angst and they’re looking for ways to vent. I just wish they could use their energies for something better.”

Speaking about her children, Mandira shares, “Tara has been with us for a few months and people often ask, ‘Can you love and comfort her as much as your son Vir?’ It has only been a few months and yet, each day when I hug her, kiss her and put her to sleep, I just feel that it’s unbelievable just how much I love her. It’s my proudest and most grateful moment to have her on one side and Vir on the other, sleeping peacefully on my shoulders. I feel blessed that I could give a family and a home to one child, and give birth to another.”
