Social media is as brutal as is a blessing. And while many celebrities can vouch for the fact, Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai actress Pankhuri Awasthy is currently bearing the brunt of a simple social media post. The actress, who plays Vedika, Kartik's wife in television's longest-running daily soap, posted a picture of herself in a room that belongs to Kartik, her husband on the show. However, hardcore Kartik (Mohsin Khan) and Naira (Shivangi Joshi) supporters, who still believe that Kartik's room is Naira's and that the pair are end game (which they are), took to Twitter to lash out at Vedika and Pankhuri both. Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai New Promo: Kartik and Naira To Get Into A Custody Battle For Kairav!

Once again guys, with love... Vedika is just a character that actress Pankhuri Awasthy is playing. And while fans taking out their frustration and anger on Vedika is completely justified, dragging and tagging Pankhuri for doing a job that she has been assigned by the show makers, is just not done. Some tweets targeted Pankhuri and called her a cheap actress, which is crossing a line by definition. Trolling and making fun is a different thing, but shaming actors for playing certain characters is plain rude.  If only fans knew how to differentiate and draw a line... Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai September 23, 2019 Written Update Full Episode: Kairav Gets Upset With Naira, But Kartik Manages To Convince Him!
