Everyone, from the average Joe to the A-lister, worries about negative comments made about them online in today’s digital environment. The rise in online abuse and harassment of celebrities coincides with the rise in the popularity of social media platforms that enable users to broadcast their views to a wide audience.
Both the private and professional lives of celebrities are often subject to intense scrutiny and criticism. One of the most common forms of cyberbullying is the criticism of a celebrity’s performance skills.
People often feel they have the right to share their opinions on how effectively a celebrity acts in a movie or TV show. Negative effects may be caused by harsh or cruel statements, even if the criticism is useful. This is why famous people often embarrass themselves by getting involved in pointless internet fights.
Yet, certain well-known figures are able to respond to trolls in a way that does not diminish their own sense of worth. Most recently, actress Tillotama Shome responded politely to the internet user who had critiqued her performance in The Night Manager.
Tillotama Shome, who has lately come to prominence for playing RAW agent Lipika Saikia Rao on the hit espionage thriller series The Night Manager, has been the focus of internet trolls who have called her character “the most obnoxious” in the program.
When one troll wrote,
The most irritating character in the series and one of the reason i couldn’t continue to watch #TheNightManager
The actress, however, handled the online backlash graciously and optimistically, accepting responsibility for her actions and pledging to do better in the future.
In reply to this, Tillotama said,
Aioooo am so sorry. Will do better.
Her tweet about her response to the criticism quickly went viral, and many of her followers raced to the site to express their support for her and praise her acting abilities on the program.
Later, that netizen again replied to her, saying,
Heyy!! That’s cool…. You were great in Delhi Crime, so this one’s on the writers
Critics and audiences alike have appreciated the first season of The Night Manager, and the show has been called one of the best espionage thrillers in the nation by its many devoted followers. Viewers have praised Tillotama Shome’s performance as a smart and capable RAW agent who can integrate with male-dominated settings.
Her character, Lipika Saikia Rao, teams up with Aditya Roy Kapur’s ex-Navy man turned five-star hotel management to take down Anil Kapoor’s infamous weapons dealer Shailendra ‘Shelly’ Rungta.
Based on John le Carré’s 1993 book of the same name, this series is an official version of the 2016 BBC drama of the same name. Tillotama Shome’s character, Angela Burr, was represented by Olivia Colman in the original series. Tom Hiddleston starred as Jonathan Pine, while Hugh Laurie was cast as weapons trader Richard Onslow Roper.
