KARACHI: Pakistani actress Mahira Khan said on Monday that she doesn't like non-constructive criticism and controversy on social media but tends to face it anyway.
Speaking exclusively to www.samaa.tv, the Raees star said that negative comments did hurt her because just like everyone else, she was also a human being.
"It hurts and I don't like it," she said. "I don't read all the comments but tweets, yes. I do read tweets that are posted regarding me," she said.
Mahira Khan further said that she was a human being just like everyone else hence she was always curious regarding feedback.
"When there are 1,000 comments regarding you and only two negative ones, the bad ones are what your mind focuses on," she said.
Mahira said that she sometimes takes comments on her quite seriously and sometimes doesn't pay attention to them. However, she does take note of what her loyal fans say regarding her on social media.
"I do keep track of what my loyal fans say about me on social media so as to know exactly what they want me to do next," she said. "But we are actors at the end of the day and after we get so much love and adulation, there is bound to be a little criticism. Itna toh chalta hai."
The actress is busy these days promoting her upcoming flick Verna which has been helmed by Shoaib Mansoor and stars singer Haroon Rashid in the lead with her.
