Sukriti Kandpal is the latest addition to the popular cast of Anupamaa. The actress plays the role of Anuj’s (Gaurav Khanna) friend, who is causing trouble in Anupamaa’s (Rupali Ganguly) life. Post the leap of the show, the cast is shown to have moved to the United States where Sukriti’s character Adhya meets the leads. In a new interview, the actor opined about the negativity around her role.  

Sukrit Kandpal says trolls have a ‘love-hate’ relationship with actors

In an interview with Pinkvilla, Sukriti Kandpal opened up about facing trolls for the character in the show. Previously Chhavi Pandey, who played the role of Maya also played a similar role on the show and had to face flak. Talking about the same Sukrit said, "I don't think about what happened with other characters and tracks; I only concentrate on my own work as I don't think it's a productive thing to do. Also, every character has its own charm, so I'm not assuming what'll happen.”

However, Sukriti did not discount the fact that she might get trolled. The actress added, “I can get trolled; it's possible, but then it is part of the package. Trollers are silent admirers. They have a love-hate relationship with you. Can't live with us and they definitely can't live without us. It's cute."

In the same conversation, the Dil Mil Gaye fame reflected on what a big responsibility it is to join the cast of a show that has become popular. She said, “Well, I felt a sense of responsibility, honestly! When the platform becomes bigger, it demands a higher level of performance from a person, and in all my previous shows, I have given the best of my ability, so I wanted to do the same here.” Sukriti’s character Adhya was introduced in the show post a leap.
