TMKOC Actor Munmun Dutta And Raj Anadkat Slams Media And Netizens For Cooking Up False Stories

After reports of Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah actor Munmun Dutta dating her co-star, Raj Anadkat, surfaced online, the two have been heavily trolled on all social media platforms. On Sunday, both the actors who are known for essaying the role of Babita and Tapu in the hit show TMKOC broke their silence on the matter. Taking to Instagram and slamming the media for making up false stories, Munmun Dutta wrote: “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!!” 

She also shared a post for the general public and 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. Today, I am ashamed of calling myself a DAUGHTER OF INDIA.” 

Raj Anakdat also took to Instagram and slammed the trollers and wrote: “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 channelize your creativity somewhere else it will be helpful to you. May God bless them with good sense,”
