Neha Bhasin: The things that have affected my life the most in the past is hate
Singer Neha Bhasin had become very close to Pratik Sehajpal during Bigg Boss OTT which occurred a couple of months prior. Their friendship was criticised on social media and she was very upset about it after coming out of the big boss house.
In a Chat with ETimes, Neha said, “People can resort to any level to attack others. I will never have ‘Oh this is okay’ kind of attitude towards the s*ut shaming that came my way. I appreciate the fact that Pratik has also stood by the friendship we had and so do I, but the way the world glorified Pratik and put all the shame on my shoulders, was shocking.”
Neha needed to confront a ton of hate after she came of out BBOTT. Discussing it, she had said, “I have never done anything like Bigg Boss before. I have led an artistic life and focused on my music. I already do have a fantastic career. But Bigg boss for me was like a double-edged sword where a part of me really enjoyed being myself on the show. I always felt that I have a fun side to me and I showed all my fun qualities to the audiences. But then after coming out of there I saw that there is a section of people who really loved me and the way I was, and another section that has been judgmental.”
Neha said she has experienced her portion of good and bad times. Discussing the lows she expetienced in life, she shared, “Three years ago in 2018, I lost my dad and It was difficult for me to get out of that. Me and my family took more than a year to accept it and that was one of the most difficult times that I have faced. But the dark times I have been talking about earlier and I have spoken about it on BBOTT, was 10 years back when I was in the initial stage of my career. The things that have affected my life the most in the past is hate. I know that public figures are not supposed to take it seriously but I used to take it to heart. Not just hate from the public but also from within our group. I felt I was taken granted. I went through depression, suffered a food disorder and it took me a long time to understand that life is beautiful even though the world may not be. That was a quick awakening for me again after I came out of BBOTT.”
