New Delhi:

Filmmaker Anurag Kashyap’s daughter Aaliyah Kashyap, in a recent Q & A video on YouTube, opened up about dealing with social media negativity. Aaliyah, who is a blogger, said that “blocking” is her way of staying sane on social media, but not before revealing that that she indeed is affected by the slightest bit of social media trolling: “Social media negativity is something I have come to terms with. I am a sensitive person and even the smallest bit of hate does affect me.” She also opened up about the hatred she received over a photo of herself in underwear, which she posted on her Instagram. “Recently I posted a lounge underwear picture on my Instagram and the amount of backlash I got for it – people telling me that I should be ashamed being Indian and posting stuff like that.”

Aaliyah elaborated on the extent of hatred she was subjected to for that post: “People were sending me rape threats, people were calling me a prostitute, people were sending me death threats, people were saying mean things about my family.”

“I was crying constantly, I was very upset,” she added.

In her video, Aaliyah said shutting out negativity is how she keeps a positive vibe on her Instagram: “I just realised it doesn’t matter because these are people hiding behind their phones and I just block every one. Like if there’s anything even remotely negative on my social media, I just block them. Because I want my social media to be a positive place.”


Aaliyah Kashyap also talks about being related to Bollywood, battling mental health issues, her relationship and more in this video.
