Kashyap, among many other celebrities, has been trolled on digital platforms. The filmmaker was criticised on social media after the failure of his film "Bombay Velvet".

Asked how he felt on getting trolled, Kashyap said: "I felt attacked, but I can't waste my time thinking about it. I don't know what happened. When I get trolled, I block people. I cannot live my life thinking about it."

The "Dev.D" helmer says that there is a difference between criticism and trolls.

"Criticism and trolls are different. Trolls are people who are just trying to poke you... Those are the people I block. Criticism is healthy. Criticism that's unhealthy, I block it. Anything that works towards my growth, I will take it," he said.

He stressed that people who make personal attacks are not critics.

"I deal with trolls like that because for me, it's done. I react immediately and it's over for me. I have survived so much. I am a very strong survivor," he added.

Kashyap says he is in the industry to be a filmmaker and that "he will make movies till my dying day."
