Konkona Sensharma On COVID-19
Konkona Sen Sharma Instagram: The actor took to her Instagram account on August 2 to share pictures of herself as a pet parent. That is when a fan took to the cue to criticize Sen for her age and wrote that it was sad to see Sen age. The Ek Thi Daayaan actor’s reply was, howsoever, a sarcastic and deep one.

The post was captioned as, “The last lockdown I rescued this cutie but this is my first dog and I hadn’t managed to train her properly. So so happy to have sent my Pepita here for toilet training, leash training and general confidence building.”

It added, “Also how goofy does my Pepita look?”

The post which has now garnered over 14,000 likes in a few hours of being posted, was meant to be an appreciation post for a dog training facility.

One of Sen’s fans took to the comment section and expressed how sad it was for them to see Sen ageing. The user added that the industry did not do justice with Sen and artists like her.

Sen noticed the ageist comment among a flood of other comments and replied to the same in a sarcastic manner. She wrote, “Aww, don’t be sad. It is a privilege to age as opposed to dying tragically young.”
