Indore: After being trolled over her recent pilgrimage to Ujjain’s Mahakal temple, Sara Ali Khan broke her silence and gave a stern reply to the sloganeering. During the press conference of her upcoming film Zara Hatke Zara Bachke, she said, “I take my work very seriously. I work for the people, for you. If you don’t like my work, I will feel bad. But my personal beliefs are mine. My own. I will go to Ajmer Sharif with the same reverence with which I would go to Bangla Sahib or Mahakal. I will keep going. I have no problem with what people say. You have to like the energy of a place. Yes. I believe in energy. This is not the first time the ‘Gaslight’ actor has been trolled for visiting temples.
