Speaking with OTTpaly, Varun Badola admitted he used to get affected by social media trolling earlier. However, the actor doesn't get affected by it now. 


The Undekhi 3 actor shared his thoughts on the issue by stating, "It used to affect me initially. Mujhe ye game hi nahi samaj aata tha. Then, somebody asked me, Why are you taking it seriously?' People are relentless and uncool. (Someone once said) Kisi ek insaan ke paas itna vella (free) time hain ki tum khud kuch nahi ukhad rahe ho zindagi mein, par tum har dusre (insaan) ko gaali de rahe ho."

Varun further mentioned, "I use Instagram only when it is necessary. I keep it deleted for 4 to 5 months. I reactivate it when I am back to shooting for a project."
