Actress Celina Jaitly has taken a stand against derogatory remarks made by self-proclaimed film critic journalist Umair Sandhu. Sandhu's offensive post had alleged her involvement with her late actor Feroz Khan and his son Fardeen Khan, resulting in online abuse towards Jaitly. Consequently, she lodged a complaint with the National Commission for Women (NCW), highlighting that freedom of speech shouldn't be misused for character assassination.Celina Jaitly calls herself “victim of verbal violence, humiliation”; speaks about spat with Pakistan-based self-proclaimed journalist
Celina explained in a conversation with India Today how the derogatory content had negatively affected her. She asserted, “Freedom of speech and verbal violence and brutal measures to assassinate someone’s character are two different things. In my case, I was a victim of viral content generated for personal gains.”
The actress continued, “He has made bizarre claims about my life in Austria, my life in Mumbai and whatever content he was creating was getting him followers overnight at my expense. I have been a victim of verbal violence, humiliation and most headlines, thanks to this person's content about me in a derogatory manner, no matter how supportive the media outlet is.”
As the conversation progressed further, the No Entry actress stated that the self-proclaimed film critic is actually based in Pakistan but changes his location frequently. The man calls himself a "South Asian film critic" but only works for small media outlets in India.
She added, “The height of stupidity is that some of the most reputable and credible media outlets report on the lies spread by a Pakistani imposter, only because he uses fancy tags like 'South Asian film critic' while posting batches of old holiday photos to convince people of his residence elsewhere. He might as well be an ISI agent who is trying to infiltrate Indian media outlets.” She concluded the conversation by saying, “We have to see, I have faith in NCW and the Government Of India.”
