The actress further wrote, “Your social media handles are not going to help him.But karma will surely hit back to each one of you who is cursing that little 7yrs old girl.Kaise log ho yaar tum log..Dharne pe baitho,Bhook hartal karo,dikhao apna support..but gandagi mat phelao..kya gandagi macha rakhi hai (sic).”
Nia Sharma took notice of this and made a personal attack on Devoleena. She tweeted, “Didi ko koi bata do dharna and candle march nahi kar sakte pandemic hai abhi bhi. Also Didi needs to practice her dance before she makes those pathetic dance reels thinking she’s nailing them (sic).”

She added, “And waise all my tweets were for those who are abusing,trolling & cursing ,naming the 7 yrs old girl a gold digger.Mirchi choti ko kyun lagi?Or may be she is one of them who reacts reading articles without checking the truth & facts (sic).”
