Deepika and Ranveer got married in 2018. The two are one of the most popular couples in Bollywood right now. But along with the love they get from the fans, there is also some amount of trolling and hatred. Ranveer himself has admitted that social media is seeing some hate speech or trolling.
In an interaction with ETimes recently, the actor said that after seeing the horror of the pandemic, he has become somewhat of a “philosopher”, who is not easily influenced by all this. He added, “Well now, when people are overshadowed or hated, I understand and sympathize with them. This comes from the lack of something in those who find the need to point out something negative. It really is a reflection of them, it concerns them and it does not concern me or my wife. “When this criticism comes, it is so completely unfounded that I do not even agree with the idea that it should be stated how much more I should be influenced by it.”
Asked if he sometimes wanted to clarify something about the rumors or clarify, Ranveer said, “Never, what does it mean. I know the truth. I sleep at night knowing that I am operating from a genuine, honest and good place in my heart. I’m a good person and I do good to others as much as I can, and I know the same about my wife. People say that there is truth and then there are different perspectives. At the end of the day I know my truth. So how can I not worry at all. Even my fingers are used to rolling over hatred and finding the love messages I receive. Because it is unfounded, I do not subscribe to it and it does me absolutely nothing. It means absolutely nothing. “I’m less affected by that.”
Ranveer Jayeshbhai Jordaar’s latest film was released on Friday, May 13th. The film, directed by Divyang Thakkar, sees the actor in the role of an ordinary Gujarati man trying to fight his conservative family and keep his unborn girl alive. The film also stars Shalini Pandey, Boman Irani and Ratna Pathak Shah.
