She shared her views on getting slammed for her acting skills and mentioned that if she starts taking that pressure on herself, that will be useless.

“If I start taking all that pressure on myself… I am a very strong advocate for mental health and living a happy life. So, I do want to do what I want to do and I would love for everyone to love Alamzeb. But, at the end of the day, there will be people who have to say what they have to say.”

When Rajat Kaul took a firm dig at Sharmin Segal's trollers

For the unversed, Rajat Kaul was seen in the role of 'Iqbal' aka 'Balli' in Heeramandi. In an interview with India Today, Rajat called out those who have been continuously dropping mean comments on Sharmin. The actor mentioned that people really need to learn to empathise with others. He added that in this way, they will become a bit wiser, enabling them to accept others' perspectives. He further stated that he doesn't want to comment on those who, to him, seem to be discontent with themselves. The actor remarked that people who criticise others actually reflect on themselves. The actor added that there's no control over such things, and Sharmin is no exception. However, according to him, Sharmin has contributed her fair share in the series, just like everybody else.
