Fardeen Khan slams trolls saying he is not ashamed or depressed


Recently, a picture of Fardeen Khan surfaced which showed the actor has put on oodles of weight. The picture went viral and his drastic weight gain made the actor a subject of memes and jokes on social media.

Fardeen, who was last seen in 2010 film ‘Dulha Mil Gaya’ was quite popular for his looks, but he been away from the big-screen for quite some time now.

The ‘Janasheen’ actor did not keep quiet and lashed out at all those body-shamers who mocked his extra weight. He wrote a long post on Facebook, in block letters, saying he is neither ashamed of his weight gain nor depresses about it.

Here is what the actor wrote:

“DEAR ALL,

NOT ASHAMED NEITHER SHAMED. NOT OFFENDED. NOT DEPRESSED. NOT BLIND EITHER. AM I HAPPY?? EMPHATICALLY!!!! INFACT, LIVING THE HAPPIEST CHAPTER THUS FAR WITH LBS TO SHOW FOR IT.

HAPPY TO HAVE BEEN THE WEEKENDS ENTERTAINMENT FOR ALL YOU TROLLERS. IF YOU HAVE HAD ENOUGH FUN PLEASE TAKE THE TIME TO LOOK AT YOUR OWN REFLECTION. IF TROLLING IS WHAT MAKES YOU FEEL BETETR ABOUT YOURSELF, YOU HAVE TO SERIOUSLY THINK ANOUT YOU FUTURE PROSPECTS. MY BEST WISHES.”

The son of late actor Feroz Khan also urged people to raise their voice against online trolling.

“FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO SPOKE AGAINST MINDLESS TROLLING PLEASE RAISE YOUR VOICES. THIS WORLDWIDE BEHAVIORAL PATTERN ON THE INTERNET IS DISTURBING EVEN THOUGH I BELIEVE IN ABSOLUTELY FREE SPEECH AND OPINIONS. BEING A REALIST, I WILL CAUTION THAT ALL WE CAN HOPE TO ACHIEVE BY SPEAKING OUT…IS THAT THE NEXT TIME A PERSON TROLLS PURELY FOR THEIR OWN AMUSEMENT, HE OR SHE PAUSES TO CONSIDER THEIR OWN MORAL AND ETHICAL CODE. I ALSO WANT THEM TO HONESTLY ANSWER TO THEMSELVES A VERY RELEVANT QUESTION. "WOULD THEY STILL FEEL EMPOWERED TO TROLL IF THE ANONYMITY OFFERED BY SOCIAL MEDIA PLATFORMS ON THE INTERNET DID NOT EXIST???? I HAVE NO DOUBT THAT 99 % WOULD NOT HAVE THE GUTS TO…….IT PROVES THAT THEY ARE NOTHING MORE THAN A BUNCH OF COWARDS. I HOPE THEY THINK ABOUT THAT THE NEXT TIME…..

ENOUGH SAID FOR NOW…..I AM SURE YOU ALL HAD A FEW LAUGHS AT MY EXPENSE TOO…I MUST CONFESS I DID TOO….THERE IS A SAYING " BLESSED IS HE WHO CAN LAUGH AT HIMSELF FOR HE SHALL NEVER CEASED TO BE AMUSED" MORE IMPORTANTLY, I BELIEVE THE RIGHT TO LAUGH AT ANOTHER IS EARNED BY HAVING THE COURAGE TO LAUGH AT YOURSELF. BESIDES LIFE IS TOO SHORT AND WOULD MAKE OUR EXISTENCE UNBEARABLY DULL AND SERIOUS IF WE DIDNT..”

He also thanked all those who came in support of him against the trolls.

“LASTLY, TO ALL MY DEAREST FANS AND WELL WISHERS,

YOUR SENSITIVITY, KINDNESS, AND LOVE EXPRESSED THROUGH YOUR POSTS AND TWEETS WERE MOST TOUCHING. I CANT THANK YOU ENOUGH BUT IT WAS UNNECCESARY AS I AM SURE YOU ARE EQUALLY SHOCKED AND DISAPPOINTED. I JUST WANT YOU ALL TO KNOW THAT AFTER A VERY LONG TIME I AM IN A GREAT SPACE IN MY LIFE. ALL I ASK IS FOR YOU TO BE HAPPY FOR ME AND EXPECT NOT TO BE DISAPPOINTED FOR LONG.

AS ALWAYS MY BEST WISHES ARE WITH YOU AND THE PEOPLE YOU LOVE.

LOTS OF LOVE,

FARDEEN.”
