Filmmaker Anurag Kashyap’s daughter Aaliyah recently shared a video on badly she was affected by the severe backlash on social media for posting her pictures in lingerie.

Aaliyah is currently studying in the United States.

Sharing a 13-minute-and-45-second video on her YouTube channel, the 20-year-old talked about how she was 'crying constantly' after she received rape and death threats.  

"So social media negativity is something I have come to terms with. Like, I am a very sensitive person and even the smallest bit of hate does affect me, but I don’t know. I’m sensitive, I cry almost every day about the dumbest s**t," she said.

Talking about the hate she received for sharing pictures in her underwear, Aaliyah said: "People were telling me that I should be ashamed of being Indian and posting stuff like that. People were sending me rape threats, calling me a prostitute, DMing me and asking me what my ‘rate’ was, sending me death threats, s**tting on my family. That whole incident of the picture got me a lot."

In her video, Aaliyah also revealed that she has no plans of joining the film industry.

"The movies my dad makes aren’t very commercial. I obviously grew up watching my parents but for me, it seems normal because that is what I grew up watching. So, it’s not like, 'Oh my God, it’s Bollywood'. I don’t get fascinated by it. That is not what I want to do, I am trying to stay away from it."
