Helly Shah has an epic reply to her haters who thought she’s left the industry and said she was ‘jobless’.
Helly Shah has been working from the past 7 years. Helly, who rose to fame with Swaragini, was later seen in TV shows like Sasural Simar Ka, Shakti – Astitva Ke Ehsaas Ki, Ishq Mein Marjaavaan 2 and others.
Ahead of her birthday, Helly Shah got candid and revealed how people assumed that she was jobless when she decided to take a break for 1.5 years. The actress said that she decided to let her work do all the talking.
She revealed in an interview, “After Devanshi wrapped up in September 2017, I thought of taking a break and wanted this time for myself to introspect and plan my next move. I also didn’t want to do similar kinds of roles that were being offered. But then, some people were like, ‘Arrey iske paas kaam nahi hai, isko to kaam nahi milta’. It was so upsetting. At one point, my mother asked me if I’m getting offers, why am I not saying yes to them and shut these people up.”.
She further added, “The notion of being out of sight and out of mind is for real, as people started to spread wrong information. There came a time when people actually thought I’ve become too pricey and choosey, hence good work isn’t coming my way. Some even believed that I’ve left the industry. It does feel sad but I prefer to let my work talk, and thankfully it did.”.
She further added, “I realised that along with those who love you, there would be people who’ll say bad things. Social media let you put forth your opinion, but people think they can say anything without realising how their words might affect someone. They don’t know where to draw the line.”.
As the actress resumed work in July, she revealed that there are still laxity people who do not take precautions seriously.
She concluded saying, “Sometimes, people forget to wear masks and I understand it gets difficult to keep it on for 12 hours at a stretch while shooting. But we’ve to be careful, so I keep reminding them. Not just on set, but I keep telling people outside on the road, too.”.
