Actor Divya Aggarwal, who was recently trolled for posting pictures on social media a few days after her father’s death, revisited the difficult time when he could not see his father while fighting Covid-19 in hospital. .
The day after she revealed the news of her father’s death, Divya posted a family picture and wrote a note of perspective with her. “The Meri pyari family. Nothing has changed .. I have lost a parent but I have gained a God .. I have a heart full of thoughts .. I would like to share them with everyone .. tomorrow I will come to live in the afternoon .. My father does not I like when I cry .. so I don’t cry at all .. I just want to thank each and every one of you who have been with me .. who prayed for my father on the night of the day, “she” d written.
Divya told the Bombay Times: “My father died from COVID complications. He was hospitalized and I tried my best to provide him with the best possible medical care. I live in Bandra with Varun (Sood, boyfriend). I was not allowed to meet him, so all I could do was receive regular updates. In fact, my whole family was infected and in the hospital, but fortunately my mother and brother recovered. My father already had many health problems; he had a heart condition and had suffered cerebral hemorrhages in the past. In the last days, his heart was not working properly. We hoped it would improve. “
Responding to the trolls who criticized her for posting happy pictures, Divya also told the daily: “I am not personally affected, but I am worried about others facing similar attacks. I returned to work two days after my father died and was targeted by trolls. My job requires me to hide my real emotions, to put on make-up and look happy. That makes it easier for people to judge me. The truth is, I’ve always found relief in my work. Plus, I’m the only bread winner in my family. Dad left a void that can’t be filled, but I have to work for my mom and little brother and have fun. I could have cried and grieved in public, as people expected, but that would have affected my loved ones. According to my father, my younger brother is looking at me, I have to be strong for him. I can’t cry the way people want, is there a rulebook for that? I did not allow anyone to put a garland on his picture or my mother to wear white. In fact, no one wore white at his funeral. I want to celebrate his life, I don’t want to be constantly reminded that he is gone. I don’t want validation from people that it saddens me, it’s personal. “

Last month, Divya posted a black-and-white picture of her family and wrote in an emotional post: “I have had the biggest loss of my life … nothing is close to losing a father in a daughter’s life. NOTHING. I forgave my god to take so suddenly the beautiful jewel of my life .. Dear father, I take full responsibility for our beautiful family and I will not disappoint you .. And I remember who I am with me in these crucial days .. Being strong doesn’t mean I don’t need anyone … but I’m strong enough to decide a few things … #loveyoudad. “
It wasn’t the first time Divya had been trolled. Earlier this year, she was targeted for posting about her periods. She shared her stories on Instagram to share a video with Varun lying down, running his fingers through his hair. “When I’m in periods, he doesn’t know what to do,” she wrote.
