Shenaz Trea­sury is un­fazed by trolls

Trolling on so­cial me­dia is un­avoid­able, es­pe­cially for celebri­ties. In this re­gard, ac­tor Shenaz Trea­sury knows how to han­dle such peo­ple. Not re­act­ing or re­spond­ing to peo­ple who in­ter­fere in an ac­tor’s pri­vate space, Shenaz says, “I like to use Michelle Obama’s line from the elec­tion — ‘when they go low, we go high.’ Most trolls are seek­ing at­ten­tion by try­ing to get a re­sponse. So best is to ig­nore.”

Re­fer­ring to re­cent in­ci­dents where ac­tors such as Priyanka Cho­pra, Deepika Padukone, Fa­tima Sana Shaikh and many oth­ers were mocked for what they chose to wear, Shenaz says si­lence is the best re­venge. “A troll is only as pow­er­ful as your re­sponse to them, once you re­spond to them or let them in­sti­gate you, then you’ve given them power,” she adds.

How­ever, Shenaz feels for­tu­nate that she hasn’t been sub­jected to ex­treme trolling where peo­ple got down­right nasty. The ac­tor, who is quite ac­tive on so­cial me­dia plat­forms in­clud­ing Face­book and In­sta­gram, has over the last 10 months, emerged as a travel and life­style in­flu­encer. Also, she feels that whether a post gets flak or not de­pends on its con­tent.

“Most of my pho­tos and sto­ries are about travel and food. My self­ies are not regular self­ies. I give peo­ple a sneak peek into cul­ture and life­styles and ex­pe­ri­ences from around the world,” shares Shenaz.

The ac­tor, who will soon be in a film, Kaalakaandi, with Saif Ali Khan, is proud of the fact that she de­liv­ers sen­si­ble con­tent on a daily ba­sis that res­onates with her so­cial me­dia fam­ily. “My fol­low­ers rely on my rec­om­men­da­tions for mak­ing travel de­ci­sion. There’s no space for trolls,” she quips.
