Fardeen Khan, who was last seen in Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Heeramandi: The Diamond Bazaar as Wali Bin Zayed-Al Mohammed, recently opened up about dealing with trolls after he gained weight a few years ago.

He said that he was surprised to have gotten that attention. "You quickly understand that people remembered you in a certain way. They were surprised to see me. I had let myself go in the way that I had. I mean I was a worldwide trending topic at that time and not for the right reasons," said the actor to Hindustan Times.

Further, Fardeen said that as he dealt with the trolling, he developed thick skin. He added, "You kind of teach yourself or force yourself to not take it personally to whatever extent you can. You can find humour in it. You can philosophise about it. You can learn from it. For me, I tried to do all three. It was a punch and I took it on the chin.”

"The intensity or the degree of meanness was a revelation. It does surprise you that people would find joy in someone else’s misery and despair," the actor added.

On the work front, Fardeen will be seen next in Khel Khel Mein, which will hit the big screens on Independence Day, August 15, 2024. The film also stars Akshay Kumar, Taapsee Pannu, Vaani Kapoor, Ammy Virk, Aditya Seal, and Pragya Jaiswal in key roles.

He also has Visfot, a remake of Venezuelan crime thriller.
