Over the years social media platforms have become extremely prominent and popular, but on the flip side the cases of trolling and cyberbullying have become increasingly alarming. Trolls and bullying have also become a major cause of negativity that has been affecting people’s mental health. When bullying happens online it can feel as if you’re being attacked everywhere, even inside your own home. It can seem like there’s no escape. People not only troll others on their professional lives but on personal lives too.
Actress Sonakshi Sinha has also faced trolls and bullying for the longest time now. So to put an end to online bullying, Sonakshi has now teamed up with Mission Josh and few other cyber experts and launched a campaign, ‘Full Stop To Cyber Bullying.’
The Campaign which is led by Sonakshi & Special IGP of Maharashtra Mr Pratap Dighavkar and will have five different live interactions with panelists which will be streamed live on her social media handles.
