New Delhi (Sputnik) — Global celebrity from India Priyanka Chopra was candid about the question of online trolls saying that whatever they spew out on social media platforms puts "crazy pressure" on artists, said a media report in timesofnow.com quoting a recent interview she did with news agency IANS.
Along with her brother's marriage arrangements, the actress is also reportedly doing a final shoot for her new Bollywood movie "The Sky is Pink".
In her interview with IANS, she said that trolling culture leads to depression and cyber-bullying. "First of all, the pressure comes from people's opinion and how in today's age everyone's opinion becomes news", the actress rued.
Relating this to herself and how she has handled the issue she added, "I have been not someone who has lived my life according to somebody else. I have walked to the beat of my own drum but I am very cognizant of somebody's feelings as a public person".
The Bollywood-turned-Hollywood celebrity talked about shielding children from the onslaught of trolls saying that it may lead to adverse behaviour.
"Our children should not be thought that people's opinions are that important. When they get bullied in school or when they get bullied as teenagers because of the comments written on Instagram it leads them to depression leading them to take harsh decisions in their life", she cautioned.
