She has said that the audience has every right to express their opinion, whether it is positive or negative.

Actress Sharmin Segal, who played the role of Alamzeb in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Heeramandi: The Diamond Bazaar’, is facing a lot of criticism. People have called her expressionless and made fun of her a lot. Now after so much time, the actress has finally broken her silence on her criticism and has reacted for the first time. She said that she has also received a lot of positive comments for her role but people are only interested in negative comments.

Actually, after the release of ‘Heeramandi’ series, reviews started coming about the show and with this, the actresses who appeared in this series started making headlines one by one. While Richa Chadha to Manisha Koirala were praised a lot, many viewers and influencers called Sharmin expressionless and a crowd of people imitating her gathered on social media. Apart from this, people also trolled her a lot for her behavior. She started getting criticized due to her own interviews. Actually, many such video clips surfaced on social media, when Sharmin was seen misbehaving with her co-stars Aditi Rao Hydari and Richa Chadha and people started disliking her from here. Many people have also made fun of her by calling her a ‘nepokid’ as Bhansali’s niece. ‘The audience has every right to express their opinion’

Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s niece Sharmin Segal, while talking to News18, said, ‘As a creative person, it is important to accept that ultimately our audience is the king. They have every right to express their opinion, whether it is positive or negative. There was a time when I was not paying attention to a lot of reviews but then slowly I realized that I was also losing a lot of love that I was getting. I have started paying attention to that now. In the last few days, I decided to look at all this.’

‘I gave my everything to the character of Alamzeb’

She further said, ‘I have given my everything to the character of Alamzeb. We always focus on the negative things but along with this there are many positive things, which we never talk about. Perhaps talking about the positive may not be as interesting to talk about and we ignore them to a large extent. People’s opinions shape you as an actor and as a human being. These are the real people who respond to you and this makes you realize how many people you can reach. Therefore, these opinions of people are very important.’

Started acting with the 2019 film ‘Malaal’

However, it is not that Sharmin has appeared in front of the camera and on screen for the first time. She has worked in many other films of Sanjay Leela Bhansali, including ‘Goliyon Ki Raasleela: Ram-Leela’, ‘Bajirao-Mastani’ as an assistant director. At the same time, she started acting with the 2019 film ‘Malaal’ starring Meezaan Jafri. At the same time, Sharmin has also worked as an assistant director in the film ‘Gangubai Kathiawadi’.
