Child artiste Riva Arora, who was recently in the limelight for her videos with singer Mika Singh and actor Karan Kundrra, has now responded to trolls attacking her. After her video with Karan surfaced online, many claimed that Riva was a 12-year-old, and criticised her for featuring alongside an elder man. Talking about those attacking her and doubting her age, Riva told DNA, “What do I even say to that? I don’t have anything to say to people who are doubting my age or what I am doing. The people who are giving me love are enough for me.” With a sizeable following of 97 lakh on Instagram, Riva Arora regularly shares video collaborations with other artistes and that occasionally pairs her with grown male actors in romantic songs for the short videos. After the controversy around Riva’s video with Karan, her mother Nisha had clarified that her age is 16, not 12, adding that the video was not inappropriate. Prior to these videos, Riva had featured in small roles in films such as Vicky Kaushal-starrer Uri: The Surgical Strike, Gunjan Saxena The Kargil Girl, and Manikarnika The Queen of Jhansi.
