Heeramandi: Amid accusations of nepotism, Sharmin Segal receives flak for interrupting Sanjeeda Sheikh in an interview

en Bollywood News Heeramandi: Amid accusations of nepotism, Sharmin Segal receives flak for interrupting Sanjeeda Sheikh in an interview

Sharmin Segal essayed the role of Alamzeb in her uncle Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s recently released web-show.

Heeramandi: The Diamond Bazaar has been a major topic of discussion on social media where actresses like Manisha Koirala, Sonakshi Sinha, Aditi Rao Hydari, Richa Chadha, and Sanjeeda Sheikh are basking in rave reviews, but Sharmin Segal seems to be at the receiving end of it. Although the Netflix show was hailed for its extensive sets and beauty, Sharmin is being heavily criticized by audiences for her acting skills and now, another reason why the actress is being trolled is for the way she has been interrupting her co-stars during interviews.

After a video of her interrupting Aditi Rao Hydari in one of the interviews for the promotions of Heeramandi went viral, another video that has grabbed attention is the interaction she had along with co-actors Sanjeeda Sheikh and Richa Chadha for Showsha. After Sanjeeda was asked about her experience of working with Sanjay Leela Bhansali, where the Ek Hasina Thi actress appreciated the filmmaker for his dedication and for being a perfectionist, Sharmin interrupted her statement by calling Sheikh an ‘outsider’. This did not go down well with the netizens who decided to lash out at Sharmin for her ‘privileged’ background with uncle SLB and some even asked her to learn ‘acting’ before ‘disrespecting her seniors’.

After one of the social media users shared this video, along with the caption, “Sharmin gives out such mean girl energy”, it was followed by a slew of comments where netizens slammed Segal. “Yeah true cause if he was perfect he wouldn’t cast her cause she got no expressions!” said one of the comments whereas another one read, “Why is this woman trying to always one up her colleagues. She did it with Aditi Rao Hydari and now Sanjeeda Sheikh - both btw who have much more experience, finesse and talent than her.” One of the users opened about the changed opinion about Sharmin as they said, “I never tweeted anything against the acting skill or lack of it of #SharminSegal in #Heeramandi but this video is enough. Dear #SharminSegal , yes #SanjeedaSheikh is an outsider and yet when it comes to acting skills and hand work, she is light years ahead of you, want proof?” Sanjeeda is her senior and the way she disrespects her . I am just stunned,” shared another social media user.


Amid all the flak that Sharmin Segal has been receiving for her acting skills and now for her behaviour during interactions, her uncle Sanjay Leela Bhansali as well as the casting director of Heeramandi, Shruti Mahajan have come to her defense asserting that the casting was done on the basis of merits and that Segal earned her place in the web-show.
