Ever since Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah's stars Munmun Dutta and Raj Anadkat, who are known for essaying the roles of popular characters Babita and Tappu, respectively were rumoured to be dating each other, a meme fest for sorts began on the Internet. The actors were massively trolled across social media platforms. Now, in an Instagram post, the two broke their silence on the matter in strong Instagram posts.
On Sunday, Raj took to his social media account to call out those trolling him. "To everyone who has been constantly writing about me, THINK of the repercussions that can happen in my life because of your 'COOKED UP' (false) stories and that too about my life without any consent. All the creative people out there please channelise your creativity somewhere else it will be helpful to you. May God bless them with good sense," he wrote.
Munmun, on the other hand, had shared two separate notes slamming trollers and the media fraternity.
In one for the general public, she wrote: "To the general public, I had far better expectations from you. But the FILTH that you have showered in the comment section, even from the so-called 'LITERATE' ones proves how regressive a society we are."
"Women are constantly AGE SHAMED, SLUT SHAMED, MOM SHAMED, at the cost of your humour. Whether YOUR humour drives someone to the edge of a mental breakdown or not, is NEVER your concern. 13 years of entertaining people and it didn't take 13 minutes for anyone of you to RIP MY DIGNITY APART. So next time someone is clinically depressed or driven to take their own lives, pause and think whether it was YOUR WORDS that drove that person to the edge or not (sic)," she added, concluding: "Today, I am ashamed of calling myself a DAUGHTER OF INDIA."
She also addressed the media saying: "To the media and their zero credibility 'journos', who has given u the right to post 'IMAGINARY' 'MADE UP' articles in people's name about their private life without their consent? R u liable to the damage that you cause to their lives with your reckless behaviour? You don't stop at shoving your cameras on the face of a grieving woman who has just lost her love or lost her son, in a funeral, just for your trps. You can stoop to any level to create sensational articles/ headlines at the cost of someone's dignity, but R U GOING TO TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR WRECKING HAVOC IN THEIR LIVES?? If No then, YOU SHOULD BE ASHAMED OF YOURSELF!!"
