Jiya Shankar reacts to the troll 

Taking to X (formerly Twitter), a user posted a video that seems to be an old clip of Jiya Shankar wherein she is heard talking about being an independent woman. The video shows her saying she does not need anyone and can handle her life on her own. Attacking the actress for her statements, the troll wrote, “This is the difference between girls and boys.”

Criticizing the troll for perpetuating outdated stereotypes, Jiya Shankar reacted strongly. In response to the trolling, she tweeted, "The girl after getting a job only dreamed of supporting her single mother so that one day she could buy a house for her mom and tell her not to work anymore and guess what - she did ! This isn’t even about men/women and its so orthodox of you to do this comparison in this generation and century. May god make you capable enough to get a real job and support your family instead of doing this on X :)"

Jiya highlighted her journey and how she aspired to support her single mother. The Bigg Boss OTT 2 fame also mentioned buying herself a house and emphasized that success knows no gender boundaries.
