Actress Taapsee Pannu feels social media has given people the power to mock someone easily, and says that it can "genuinely crush someone's confidence".

"I think with the power social media has given us, it is so easy to mock someone nowadays. What people don't understand is that it can genuinely crush someone's confidence. Just because a female does not walk by the conventional rules, people like to call her by different names which is highly upsetting," Taapsee said in a statement. 

The actress, who has been trolled for flaunting a bikini and wearing a short dress on social media, will be addressing the issue through TV show "Troll Police", which brings celebrities and their trolls face-to-face. 

Talking about it, she said: "I too have been trolled, and through 'MTV Troll Police', I really want to convey the message to youngsters out there that do not use internet anonymity to shed the veneer of decency."

Taapsee, who now has 5 million-plus followers on Instagram, is a part of the show for the first episode. She will come face-to-face with Ashish, a student from Lucknow and a self-proclaimed social media blogger who trolls her on social media platforms. 

"It's humiliating! After achieving so much for yourself as an independent woman, this is how you get appreciated by the men of our society. After reading all these comments, sometimes I feel that I have opted for a wrong profession. Going forward if you see any of your friend or relative trolling someone then please share this experience with them."

The show will go on air on MTV on Saturday.

It’s also easy to promote yourself via social media.

Hypocrite Taapsee mocked the south films, and it was the same south films that gave her opportunities all these years when she could not even perform

Just like how you mocked the Telugu film industry

I really like her. these days its hard to find such heroines who can perform tough looking roles like she did in Baby and Naam Shabana. However, i feel that she need more time for commercial roles, for example, her role in Judwaa 2 . She is a really brilliant actor and hopefully, people will understand that soon.

Interesting concept! Putting troll f2f with the celeb...brave!
