It certainly seems that anything any celebrity does will not just be under immense scrutiny all the time but also be called upon as and when. That is what happened with actor Nia Sharma, who manages to find herself being the subject of trolls and controversies time and again. The Naagin 4 actor is a cycling enthusiast and enjoyed having taken a ride around the neighborhood recently. About this, she went on to post a video where she is comfortable on the bike and went 'no hands' or a couple of seconds. Little did she know that this would be invited by instant flak for her as users stated commenting and reminding her for wearing a mask, even questioning her.
Rather surprised with this outburst, Sharma opened up on the same to Times of India, where she said, “I don’t understand why people on social media have to point out that I wasn’t wearing a mask in the video. Do I have to always click a picture or post a video with a mask on? I did not know that there was a rule about taking a picture only after wearing a mask. If I can shoot with 40 people around me, and not wear a mask when I am in character and in front of the camera, then I can also remove the mask for a few seconds when I am cycling late evening for some fresh air. If you see the video, there was no one around me. I don’t have to always click a picture in a mask. I’m aware about safety precautions.”
Speaking out on her hobby, she said, “I love cycling and enjoy going for a ride at any given time during the day. Sometimes, I even ride my cycle to the set. Whenever I step out, my mask is always with me and I wear it all the time. Not because it is a rule, but for my own safety.”
