Twitter goes into overdrive 'body-shaming' Fardeen Khan

Twitterverse divided over Fardeen Khan's recent weight gain, with some trolls making fun of the Bollywood star and others defending him and slamming the 'body-shaming' movement

Fardeen Khan has been missing in action (MIA) for quite a while. In fact his last release was the 2010 flop 'Dulha Mil Gaya'.

So when Twitter went into overdrive and the actor started trending it raised a few eyebrows. Then it became apparent that the twitterverse was making fun of the actor for his recent weight gain.

Well, when we first saw this image, we too needed a second look to recognise the 'Chocolate boy' hero of 'No Entry'.

But in an age when people are taking a stand against body shaming of actresses, it seemed strange that the 42-year-old actor would be the butt of jokes for putting on some weight.

We rounded up some of tweets that targetted Fardeen. You take a call if they are funny or insensitive.

Here are some of the netizens' tweets: 

There some, though, who spoke up for Fardeen and highlighted the fact that body shaming, irrespective of gender, wasn't cool. They also spoke of how body shaming a celeb has repercussions on ordinary folks.
