One Twitter user replied, “As someone who has an autoimmune disease and has undergone heaps of experimental treatments, including steroids, with all the effects of disease and treatment showing up visibly, these kind of condescending comments can feel cruel.

The only way is to accept it too, which means ignorance.” The Super Deluxe actress took note of this tweet and wrote, “In a world where you can be anything… Be kind !! @MeDamselDee You are beautiful”.

That’s how much I love film and film loves me.” back. I strongly believe that this love will grow multifold with Shaakuntalam.’
