Richa Chadha has been trolled on so­cial me­dia sev­eral times for voic­ing her opin­ion. How­ever, she seems un­per­turbed by them. “One can’t pay too much at­ten­tion to trolls. There are peo­ple who have lost their jobs due to the bad econ­omy and need money,” says Richa, adding, “I know for a fact that peo­ple pay oth­ers to troll a public fig­ure — po­lit­i­cal or oth­er­wise.” In­stead of be­ing an­gry at the trolls, the ac­tor says that she feels bad for them. “I think bicharo ko kaam mil raha hai to kar le. Agar unko mereko do gaali de ke paisa mil raha hai to kama le paise, mera kya ja raha hai (I feel if they get some work and money by abus­ing me on the in­ter­net, so be it),” she says. Re­cently, Richa came out in sup­port of ac­tors Priyanka Cho­pra, Fa­tima Sana Sheikh and Deepika Padukone, who were be­ing slut-shammed on so­cial me­dia. About women be­ing trolled for their at­tire or their be­hav­iour, Richa says, “Be­fore a ma­jor change hap­pens, there is al­ways some kind of an up­heaval in the so­cial mi­lieu. Peo­ple who have been used to a cer­tain power struc­ture or a com­pletely pa­tri­ar­chal setup for a long time will be a shaken that women are com­ing out and do­ing their thing. That will change with time,” she says.
