Adhyayan Suman is basking in the success of his recent outing Heeramandi: The Diamond Bazaar. The actor essayed the role of a nawab in a series based on the life of courtesans in the pre-independence era. While his performance received accolades, a section of viewers criticised his co-star Sharmin Segal for her lacklustre performance in the Sanjay Leela Bhansali directorial. 

Adhyayan Suman advice for Sharmin Sehgal 

In an interview with Bollywood Hungama, Adhyayan Suman spoke about reacting to trolls. The actor opined that it is essential for an artist to face criticism and address the audience. He said, “I think it’s very important to not live in a bubble. It’s very important to accept any sort of reality, not just Heeramandi, per se. It’s very important to understand who you are, it’s very important to understand whether you have it in you to fight the next 15-20 years. It’s important for you to not lie to yourself.”

Talking specifically about Sharmin in Heeramandi: The Diamond Bazaar, the actor said, “If she is being criticised for her performance, she should come out and speak to people. The audiences are very gentle, they’ll give you another chance if they feel you’ve worked hard.” For the unversed, Adhyayan Suman is the son of actor Shekhar Suman, who was also a part of the period drama. 

When Richa Chadha spoke about Sharmin Sehgal being trolled for her performance 

In an interview with Pinkvilla, Richa Chadha opened up about the backlash received by her co-star Sharmin Sehgal. Sharmin essayed the role of Alamzeb daughter of Malika Jaan (Manisha Koirala) in the period drama.

Speaking about the same Richa said, "I think truthfully, it is the audience's right. It's the audience's prerogative that you like the show, you dislike the show. You like a performance, you dislike a performance.” However, the mom-to-be admitted that the social media trolling is incessant. She added, “But what happens today, I think in the era of social media, when people start trolling, making memes, doing all that, that's a bit hurtful, I think, for anyone. We must never be unkind because it can happen to you tomorrow. And everyone is a human being.”
