Actress Kalki Koechlin, who has carved a niche for herself in Bollywood, is one amongst many celebrities who have faced the brunt of social media trolls. But she says that she has learnt to not respond to them.
When Kalki was asked if social media trolls and negative remarks affect her, she told IANS: "Of course it affects me, but I have learnt to stop responding to them."
Kalki, who was in Bengaluru last week for an event, said that one needs to have a "good balance" about "what is it that you are in social media for."
Kalki said that for her, social media is a great way for interacting with her well-wishers.
"For me, it is a great way of interacting with fans and keeping in touch with the work which I do which is not just my film work but also theatre and writing. So I enjoy social media for that," Kalki said.
But Kalki stressed that she knows "that not everything that comes out of social media is useful, helpful or constructive."
Kalki will soon be seen in A Death In The Gunj, Konkona Sen Sharma's first film as a director, which also features Vikrant Massey.
