Social media is huge platform where people tend to express their views – both positive and negative. In fact, it has now become a place where the celebs interact with their fans and the followers can keep a track of their favourite celeb as well.

However, at times this social media game turns nasty for celebs as they tend to fall prey to trolls.

Though, even celeb has their own way of dealing with trolls, actor Neil Nitin Mukesh says he remains unfazed with the negative comments.

Neil has been criticised on social media several times with users taking a dig at his acting skills, and making fun of his name.

Does he get affected?

"Not at all. It upsets my family at times...I am the one who is pacifying them and telling them not to get upset," Neil told IANS over a phone from Mumbai.

Neil further added saying sometimes people troll celebrities to gain attention.

"I had this one man who was constantly abusing me on Twitter. Every single day he would abuse me... I would ignore it to a point, but one day the timeline had only abuses. I just responded and said 'What's the problem buddy?' and he replied saying 'I was just trying to get your attention. I am such a big fan of yours'.

"So, sometimes it's them trying to gain attention and it's okay to each their own," he said.

The ‘New York’ actor added that his father gets "really upset" over why their names are often dragged into unwanted controversies.

"My father is an old-school person, so he gets really upset. He is like 'Why my father's name and your father's name being dragged into a controversy as far as your name is concerned'," Neil said.

Neil was last seen on the silver screen in the Bejoy Nambiar-thriller "Wazir", which also featured Amitabh Bachchan and Farhan Akhtar.
