EXCLUSIVE: Debina Bonnerjee opens up on being trolled by Drashti Dhami & Gurmeet Choudhary’s fans during Geet
Gurmeet Choudhary and Debina Bonnerjee are undoubtedly the most loveable pair in the industry today. In the latest episode of Bollywood Bubble’s Chemistry 101, Debina opened up about the trolling she faced during Gurmeet and Drashti Dhami’s hit show Geet – Hui Sabse Parayi. Gurmeet’s character Maan Singh Khurana was extremely popular and his onscreen pairing with actress Drashti had gone to a different level.
During those days, the fans of Drashti and Gurmeet did something strange and uncalled for – troll Debina. Speaking about that difficult time Gurmeet says, “Debina handled the situation very well. Since we both belong to the same profession, we could balance the situation well. At the same time, we realised that this kind of reaction is quite common as if it is happening, it means your show is popular! We realised it happens with every popular actor.”
Debina adds, “It was a bit disturbing. But I would say it was not influenced by Instagram and their likes, as social media was not so active at that time. Otherwise, I would have gone mad. And also, Gurmeet was like rock-solid support to me. I could feel his presence always, all throughout. He specifically asked me not to read all the comments by the fans. We have seen this overnight stardom for Gurmeet during the show Geet so we took this with a pinch of salt. There were hate clubs as well. But when I look back at the entire situation I feel that time is the biggest healer. Do not take any hasty decisions, you need to hold on. You just can’t break yourself or be overconfident in a particular incident. The haters gradually turned into our fans.”
“People have also understood Debina. Anyone else in Debina’s place would have reacted in a different way. Whenever I interact with my fans on social media they always ask about Debina,” Gurmeet shared.
