Actor Parineeti Chopra and Varun Dhawan on Friday said it was unfair to troll Pakistani actor Mahira Khan after her pictures, where she is seen smoking with Ranbir Kapoor, landed online.
In the photos, the "Raees" star is seen in a white backless dress, smoking with actor Ranbir Kapoor in New York. The actor was trolled on social media and was also at the receiving end of slut-shaming.
When asked about her reaction, Parineeti told reporters, "I'll just say one line. It's a little unfair. Everybody knows it's unfair and it'll stop. Today, because of social media, everything becomes too big a deal."
The actor was speaking at the trailer launch of "Golmaal Again".
Pakistani singer Momina Musteshan who rose to fame with Coke Studio also appealed to all the trollers to stop judging Mahira. she tweeted, “Jesus. Can we please give @TheMahiraKhan a break?! Why are we so quick to judge and attack?! Esp if it’s a woman in question. It’s her life! Im assuming those bashing @TheMahiraKhan are saints & would happily put every moment of their lives up for scrutiny. To each their own guys!”
Varun also came out in support of Mahira. "Shame on them for shaming her," Varun said in an interview while responding to the story.
Pakistani star Ali Zafar also took to Instagram and wrote, "What has happened to us? Have we lost all sense of sensibility? "Must we choose gossip, intrigue and the self-appointed right of judgement over restrain, grace, tolerance and compassion?" Continuing with the letter, the actor wrote, "Every woman has the right to make her own choices in life (as long as she's not hurting anyone else) just like we men do. "How we react defines our own character. Choose wisely for we all shall be judged.
