Actor Shekhar Suman slammed a Twitter user who questioned the source of his wealth. Shekhar, over the weekend, shared pictures of his lavish Mumbai home, which one person reacted to by questioning how the actor could afford such luxury.
The actor initially posted a picture of his lavish interiors with the caption: My tastes are simple. I like to have the best. In reply to the image, a user questioned him: Itne paise aaya kahaan se? (Where did you get so much money from?)
Shekhar shut the troll like a boss with the reply: Mehnat se, imaandaari se, lagan se. (With hardwork, honesty and diligence). He also shared an old paper cutting, where he has been described as the Amitabh Bachchan of the television industry. The actor posted many pictures of his Mumbai home, which gives a glimpse of tasteful life and elegant décor.
One person, jumping to Shekhar’s defense, wrote, “Sometime around the mid-’90s when Movers and Shakers came on air, shekharsuman7 became the first Indian television artist to be paid Rs.1 lakh per episode. It was a big deal back then. I could be wrong, but if my memory serves me right, I remember reading this back in the day.”
The actor has several Bollywood movies for his kitty and he has also been a part of many successful TV shows. After doing shows like Dekh Bhai Dekh, Ek Raja Ek Rani and judging comedy shows, Shekhar is mostly known for conducting late-night talk show – Movers and Shakers in 1997.
The show format included interviews, comedy routines and performances with celebrity guests. The actor is quite active on social media and keeps fans updated with his fitness videos and daily life activities. It was a busy weekend for the actor on Twitter.
