First it was Priyanka Chopra, who was trolled online for her choice of clothing amid a meeting with Prime Minister Narendra Modi in Berlin. Then, Deepika Padukone was subjected to unsavoury comments when she posted a photo from a recent magazine shoot on social media.
Soon followed Fatima Sana Shaikh, who was body-shamed for posting a snap shot of her wearing a two-piece and relaxing on the beach. For celebs, being trolled for their appearance is an occupational hazard; there’s no way to escape it.
Discussing one such example, Shruti Haasan remembers how shortening her tresses got her into trouble. She says, “I met with extreme reactions on social media I cut my hair. What individuals didn’t realise was that I have always worn hair extensions; my hair has never been that long to begin with. Trimming my hair has gotten maximum flak on social media.”
