Actress-turned-politician Urmila Matondkar has talked about the constant trolling that her family and husband Mohsin Akhter, a Kashmiri-Muslim, faces on social media platforms.
In a conversation with Mojo Story, Matondkar revealed that she was distressed after her husband was regularly trolled. “He was called a terrorist, a Pakistani,” she said.
The actress further claimed that her Wikipedia page has also been edited by social media users and changed the name of her parents. “Above all, my husband is not only a Muslim, but also a Muslim from Kashmir,” she said. “We both follow our religions in an equally staunch way. That gave them a bigger forum to troll me, targeting him and his family constantly. It was highly unfortunate.
In March 2016, Matondkar and Akhter had gotten married in a private ceremony. She is known for films such as Ek Hasina Thi, Judaai, Rangeela, Satya, Bhoot, Pyaar Tune Kya Kiya and Kaun.
