"When the UP results were announced, my picture went viral; many people trolled me. At the same time, there were those who supported me. I want to thank everyone," said Nigam during the interview.

She further added, "However God has made me, I am okay with it. For those who feel there is a difference, it doesn't matter. Even Chanakya was trolled, and he did not care. Similarly, I also don't care and will focus on my studies."

In another interview with BBC, Nigam said, "If I had a few fewer marks, I would not have topped and got famous. Maybe that would have been better. I don't care much about the situation because I have been facing this for a long time. People see girls with hair and feel weird about it because they have not seen this before."

She also said that there were people who came in her support and shared how hair growth on the face can be due to hormonal imbalance. (Also Read: UP Board Class 10 topper Prachi Nigam, trolled over facial hair, gets support from online community)

Nigam's mother, Mamta, told BBC, "When people trolled her, I felt bad about it. Many people said bad things about her. We told Prachi not to let it weigh on her mind."

Her father also expressed sadness about the trolling that his daughter had to go through. He said that one should support students who are achievening things, rather than making fun of them.
