Bol­ly­wood celebs are in no mood to take flak from haters on so­cial me­dia. When a user trolled film­m­maker Anurag Kashyap for call­ing the at­tack on film­maker San­jay Leela Bhansali in Jaipur, an act of ‘Hindu ter­ror­ism’, Kashyap gave him a piece of his mind. “Black Fri­day tere baap ne ba­nayi thi na. Ki­raye Ke Deshb­hakt (Your fa­ther made Black Fri­day? You rented out pa­triot),” he wrote on Twit­ter.

An­other troll asked Kashyap to “stop sleep­ing” with film­maker Karan Jo­har. This time, Jo­har wrote back, “Let me give you some bet­ter ad­vice!! Start sleep­ing with some­one!!! You frus­trated F**k !!!! .”

Ac­tor Sushant Singh Ra­jput, too, protested against the at­tack on Bhansali by drop­ping his sur­name from Twit­ter for one day. One user asked him to change his “mother and fa­ther”. Not hold­ing back, Sushant wrote, “Beta teri umar se zada mere pass films hain. Uski ten­sion mat le tu. Chal ab so ja.” ( Son, I have done more films than your age. Don’t worry. Go to sleep).

Ac­tor Ileana D Cruz was also abused on­line for talk­ing about eve teas­ing. Af­ter she was trolled for ‘be­ing horny’, Ileana replied, “What kind of a mo­ron are you”.

In De­cem­ber last year, Twit­terati abused ac­tor Ka­reena Kapoor Khan and her hus­band, ac­tor Saif Ali Khan for nam­ing their son Tamiur. Ka­reena’s un­cle Rishi Kapoor, shut the trolls with his an­gry tweet.

Film­maker Pri­tish Nandy says this is what trolls de­serve. “They are con­gen­i­tal id­iots. They think they can get away with any­thing. When they can be un­bear­ably of­fen­sive, then why should a star re­ply to their id­iocy with wis­dom or their abuse with de­cency?” he says.
