In today's age trolling has become a part and parcel of an actor's life. Be it a Salman Khan or a Ranveer Singh, no one has been spared. In the midst of all this; Soha Ali Khan, who has been in this industry for 15 years and hails from a family of actors like Sharmila Tagore, Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor Khan, feels that the industry is not meant for thin skinned people.


Speaking about the same; IANS has quoted Khan saying," Most actors have crocodile skin and most people on social media, I think have crocodile skin. Because if you post something on social media and actually read the comments, some people will just be destroyed, but then you get used to it and like most human beings do, you adapt."


Soha; who made her debut with Dil Maange More in 2004, was later seen in films like Rang De Basanti, Khoya Khoya Chand, Tum Mile and Saheb, Biwi Aur Gangster Returns to name a few. The actress further added," People come with insecurities and the profession will exacerbate them if you are an insecure person. If you are made of thin skin, this is not the place for you or you will toughen up very fast. You tend to realize that you can't make everyone happy and the most important person you need to make happy is yourself."


Further speaking about stardom; Soha said that everything in life comes with an expiry date. She said," No, life comes with an expiry date and stardom cannot be taken seriously because honestly when you go, you are not going to take your awards with you or your money with you. I mean people say that you leave behind something but I have seen enough famous people being forgotten and not being taken seriously."



However; the actress feels that she was not tapped fully as an actor and was looking for more opportunities." I have always wanted more opportunities. I feel like I have not been tapped fully as an actor but most greedy actors feel that way. I love my job; I have always enjoyed my career to be a part of my life and my entire life. I have always craved a balanced life... Being self-employed and being an actor gives you the flexibility to do something like that."
