Saba responds to Insta user telling her to get therapy
After many reacted negatively to Saba’s performance, she responded to Instagram users who asked her if she was ‘mad’ and told her she needed therapy. When a person wrote, “You need therapy (laughing face emoji).” To this, Saba responded, “Why yes, sir/madam spud!! I tend to agree and I get it on the regular as should everyone else for existing in a world as consumed by hate as ours, you should try it!! It helps you fill your own tanks and thus not get so deeply offended by the peaceful existence of others (smiley face emoticon).”
Earlier this month, Saba Azad had talked about handling comments on social media as well as the attention from paparazzi due to her relationship with Hrithik Roshan. In an interview with IndiaToday.in, she said, “It’s taken me quite sometime to come to a place where I treat everything else as white noise because hatred is palpable. I am not made of stone, it hits you. You feel like s***. There are days when you wake up and you wonder ‘what did I do to anyone?’ ‘What did I do to you?’ ‘I am living my life, you live yours’ ‘why are you waiting for my blood?’ But at some point you realise you are not responsible for how people think and what they are projecting on you are what they are going through. It has nothing to do with you. Once you realise that, peace prevails.”
Saba was last seen in the web show Who’s Your Gynac, for which she garnered positive reactions. She plays Dr Vidhushi Kothari, a fresher OB-GYN (obstetrician and gynaecologist) who balances her time between her professional and personal lives.
Hrithik and Saba reportedly began dating early last year. Saba often accompanies Hrithik for family outings, celebrations and vacations. Hrithik was previously married to interior designer Sussanne Khan.
