"You know you deserve the trolling."
Sara Ali Khan spoke about the worst year of her life, 2020, in a recent interview.
She talked about her breakup and her films that did not do well at the box office.
The actor made her Bollywood debut with Kedarnath which won hearts.
However, her other subsequent films, including Simmba, failed to leave a mark on the box office and the audience.
There were also rumours of her dating her Love Aaj Kal 2 co-star Kartik Aaryan but their breakup rumours surfaced right before the release of their film in 2020.
During a conversation with Ranveer Allahbadia for his podcast The Ranveer Show, Sara said:
“2020 just got progressively worse. It started with a breakup and kept getting worse.
“It was a very bad year and most of it is on the internet.
“Sometimes, when you know you deserve the trolling or when something is really bad, the fact that it is on the internet is so incidental and so trivial compared to the fact that it happened, that it doesn’t really matter.
“If you’re heartbroken, miserable, exhausted, scared, nervous, kya farak padta hai 20 logg padd rahe hain, khud apne andar jwalamukhi ho raha hai (If you’re heartbroken, miserable, exhausted, scared, nervous, who cares if 20 people are reading, you yourself are drowning inside).”
Meanwhile, during an interaction with Eastern Eye, Sara Ali Khan explained that even though she was part of films that couldn’t leave an impression on movie buffs, she feels it’s her time to make mistakes.
She shared: “As an actor, we learn a lot every day. And our journey also involves the same.
“I always try to learn something or the other. But I also feel that I have made some mistakes.
“I have done such films, which have not been loved by the audience.
“But then again, this is my age to make mistakes.”
While Sara and Kartik never confirmed reports of their alleged relationship or even break up, it was Karan Johar who first said that Sara Ali Khan and Kartik Aaryan ‘began dating’ after her appearance on Koffee With Karan in 2018.
On the work front, Sara Ali Khan will next be seen in Ae Watan Mere Watan.
Besides this, she also has Zara Hatke Zara Bachke with Vicky Kaushal, Gaslight with Vikrant Massey, Anurag Basu’s Metro… In Dino and Homi Adajania’s Murder Mubarak.
