Actor Tillotama Shome, who won plaudits last year for her film Sir, has responded to a hate comment that she received on social media.

She also added the hashtag, ‘Dignity of labour’.

Actor Pooja Bhatt also supported her and wrote in a tweet, “You are a star in the real sense..one whose light will illuminate the world through the work that you have done & the lives you have touched long after you have gone. Haters are akin to ‘dark matter’. They provide the gas & ensure the ones that provide light, remain bound.”

Many of Tillotama Shome’s fans also supported her by saying, “You are an amazing actor. I love how you always bring out the essence of the character with your nuanced performance. I believe people who don't know how to argue usually resort to attacks on someone's appearance.”

Another person agreed, “Ya. She is beautiful and pretty effing hot as well!”

Another user also commented by saying, “This pathetic attempt at the insult just shows one of the many ways caste intersects with class in modern India. Loved the dignity of your character in Sir! Big fan.”

Tillotama responded saying, “Exactly!”

She was also seen alongside Naseeruddin Shah, Shefali Shah, Lillette Dubey in a supporting role in the Golden Lion-winning film Monsoon Wedding.
