MUMBAI: Shafaq Naaz is a popular name in the television industry.
The actress has been a part of the entertainment world for a long time now and has created a name for herself.
Shafaq is known for her performances in shows like Chidya Ghar, Sapna Babul Ka - Bidaai, Sanskaar Laxmi, Love Marriage Ya Arranged Marriage, Mahabharat and many others.
The actress won several accolades for her role in Star Plus' Ghum Hai Kisikey Pyaar Meiin.
Shafaq's latest project was Dancing On The Grave where she played the role of Shakereh.
Being a celebrity, your personal life is always under scrutiny. When asked if that bothers her and affects her work, Shagaq said, ''I'll be very honest. We know that this field is known for all these things. This is not something which only I or my family are going through. Every actor goes through this. Even superstars like Shah Rukh Khan and Amitabh Bachchan have faced it. It's not something extraordinary. After whatever has happened in recent times, I have not seen much of my trollers and haters. People know me for my character Kunti. They love and respect me for that irrespective of whatever is happening around me. So that is also overpowering me. I will take that in a good way. When you become a public figure, your life will no longer be personal.''
Shedding light on the comments she gets on social media, Shafaq said, ''I wear all sorts of clothes. Recently, I had posted a picture in a bikini on social media and it was very difficult for them to digest that I am wearing this. They remember me for my character Kunti and don't see me wearing such clothes. Their views haven't changed even a bit in these many years. It is the same. I respect their feelings and love for me. I am not here to disrespect anyone. I just count the blessings. It is impossible to be famous and to have people only talk good things about you.''
