Time to hear Fardeen’s version.
The Indian actor has written an open letter to the social media trolls in a perfect tone that the actor is known for. Fardeen Khan is happy that he became a perfect weekend entrainment for the haters.
“Happy to have been the weekend’s entertainment for all you trollers. If you have had enough fun please take the time to look at your own reflection. If trolling is what makes you feel better about yourself, you have to seriously think about your future prospects. my best wishes,” wrote the angry Fardeen Khan.

The Bollywood star also questioned the moral and ethical attitudes of people who have made trolling an international phenomenon without even realising that how badly it hurts people.
“For those of you who spoke against mindless trolling please raise your voices. this worldwide behavioural pattern on the internet is disturbing even though I believe in absolutely free speech and opinions,” he wrote adding that he has no doubt that 99% of the trolls on social media have absolutely no guts and that they are nothing but a bunch of cowards.
Fardeen Khan also thanked all those fans and well-wishers who have been constantly supporting him through their posts and messages on Twitter and Facebook.
“I can’t thank you enough but it was unnecessary as I am sure you are equally shocked and disappointed. I just want you all to know that after a very long time I am in a great space in my life. All I ask is for you to be happy for me and expect not to be disappointed for long,” wrote khan while addressing his fans.
Why is everyone trolling Fardeen Khan? Don’t people gain weight? What’s the the big deal?
