Being on social media isn’t an easy task.
Filmmaker Anurag Kashyap’s daughter Aaliyah recently spoke about how she was brutally trolled on social media.
Aaliyah Kashyap, daughter of filmmaker Anurag Kashyap and his first-wife & film editor Aarti Bajaj, is currently studying in the United States.
Her Instagram feed is full of jaw-dropping exotic locations, mushy pics with her boyfriend, and her stunning lingerie looks.

Recently, Aaliyah posted a video on her own YouTube channel, where she answered questions asked by her fans and followers.
In the video, she also spoke about how she was “crying constantly” after receiving severe backlash, rape, and death threats for posting lingerie pics on her Instagram.
Talking about the negativity on social media, Aaliyah said, “So social media negativity is something I have come to terms with. Like, I am a very sensitive person and even the smallest bit of hate does affect me, but I don’t know. I’m sensitive, I cry almost every day about the dumbest shit.”
“People were telling me that I should be ashamed of being Indian and posting stuff like that. People were sending me rape threats, calling me a prostitute, DMing me and asking me what my ‘rate’ was, sending me death threats, shitting on my family. That whole incident of the picture got me a lot,” she said.
However, she has now decided not to get affected by these trolls anymore. “I just realized that it doesn’t matter because these are people hiding behind their phones and have nothing better to do. I honestly just block everyone. If there is anything even remotely negative on any of my social media, I just block them because I want my social media to be a positive place,” Aaliyah added.
Meanwhile, back in 2019, Anurag Kashyap deleted his Twitter account as a user threatened her daughter of rape if he continues to talk against PM Modi.
