A few hours later, the ‘Sanam Re’ star tweeted again, “I felt appalled and beyond shocked this morning when i saw social media flooded with trolls of me in a video with respected @BoneyKapoor Sir. He is a true Gentleman and it makes me feel extremely unhappy and miserable because the social sites/media don't even think twice before putting up things or destroying anyone’s reputation. I request all to stop trolling. I honestly respect @BoneyKapoor sir & stand by him and his dignity. #Nototrolls"
Netizens had varied kind of reactions to the controversy, some supported her, a few called it a ‘publicity stunt’ and a section was furious at her for not raising her voice despite the video explaining itself.
