Actress Mahira Khan was recently trolled online for a picture in which she was seen sharing a cigarette with Ranbir Kapoor in New York City. She was slammed on social media for smoking and wearing a short dress. Though the actress is yet to react to the controversy, Ranbir has spoken about this.
“I’ve gotten to know Mahira in a personal capacity over the last few months. She is somebody who I admire and respect, for her achievements and even more for the person she is. It is very unfair the way she is being judged and spoken about. What is also sad is the inequality in judgment just because she is a woman. I request you to stop the negativity and move on with your beautiful god gifted lives. Peace and love,” read his statement to the media.
“PS: Both smoking and hate are injurious to health,” he added.
In an interview to Hindustan Times, Ranbir’s father Rishi Kapoor said, “Ranbir is a young star, he is unmarried, he’s a bachelor. He can meet anybody whoever he wants to, and if people are going to invade in his privacy, it’s not done. And I can’t say anything about all this because he’s a young man and he has the choice of meeting any girl.”
Mahira Khan, who is a popular on Pakistani Television, made her debut in Bollywood with the Shah Rukh Khan-starrer Raees.
