Mumbai:  There’s no doubt that the hate celebrities receive on social media nowadays is growing day by day.  

Sobhita Dhulipala, known for films like ‘Raman Raghav 2.0’ and ‘Kaalakaandi’, was the latest target on Twitter.

The actress had to face a barrage of negative comments for a mere, ‘Thank you’.

Sobhita, who is born and brought up in Andhra Pradesh, made her Telugu film debut with the recent release ‘Goodachari.’

Telugu star Mahesh Babu lauded the film on Twitter recently for being a slick spy thriller, and along with the lead Adivi Sesh, praised all the other actors.

Sobhita replied to the post with a ‘Thank You,’ and that’s where the problem began. 

Fans of Mahesh Babu were furious with her reply, as it was not followed by words like ‘sir’, ‘garu’ which is equivalent to ‘Ji’ in Hindi, or ‘superstar.’

They mocked her, calling her a ‘small artist’, and saying that she wasn’t fit to be even character artiste beside him and to show ‘bloody respect’ to the’ big star.’

Sobhita didn’t expect the simple ‘Thank You’ to get such extreme messages and told Pinkvilla, “I was confused that a ‘Thank you!’ was seen as disrespectful purely because I hadn’t attached salutations like Sir/superstar/The great etc. Of course I have immense respect for him and find it rather saddening that social media is not a place of safety. Anonymity shouldn’t be misused.”

After actresses getting online hate for ‘revealing’ outfits, nepotism or even random pictures or videos, this was surely a different kind of hate.
