Shekhar Suman backs Sharmin amid trolling

Shekhar while speaking about Sharmin opined, “I don’t think that Bhansali sahab did not take this into his cognizance that it can have an adverse effect. She just happens to be his niece, and has done movies earlier. What has happened is that the world has been too harsh on the poor little thing. She’s a young girl and the criticism can destroy her. People can go a little easy instead of calling her names where she was forced to disable her comments. She said she auditioned 16 times for Heeramandi, so let’s be fair to him, that he cast her.”
