Taapsee Pannu on Ranbir-Mahira viral pic: Anyone with cell phone is paparazzi
Bollywood actress Taapsee Pannu has given a statement on the viral photo of Ranbir Kapoor and Mahira Khan, which has sent the internet in a tizzy
On Thursday night, pictures of Ranbir Kapoor and 'Raees' actress Mahira Khan smoking outside a restaurant in New York went viral on social media. In no time, the pictures broke the internet. The actress faced a lot of criticism for her choice of clothes and smoking, further questioning her dignity. She was wearing a white backless dress, whereas Ranbir Kapoor was seen sporting a grey t-shirt with military green pants and smoking. In one of the photos, Pakistani actress Mahira was also spotted with a love bite on her back, while smoking with Ranbir.
Many Bollywood celebrities like Varun Dhawan, Parineeti Chopra, and others have come out in support of Mahira Khan, who was slut-shamed. The latest actress to defend Mahira is Taapsee Pannu. Talking about this distasteful act, the 'Pink' actress told Mumbai Mirror, "Today, anyone with a cell phone is paparazzi and it's difficult for celebs to have a normal life. On one hand we are criticised for having security and getting special access but when we try to live like normal beings in another country, pictures like these are clicked and leaked. Such people need to get a life!"
Taapsee, too, was recently called out for sporting a bikini in her upcoming picture 'Judwaa 2', wherein she shut the attackers with a solid response. She also spoke about this to the publication. The talented actress said, "This kind of social media shaming is like a hidden clause that you sign up for if you're a public figure. To be honest I was expecting it from the so-called 'flagbearers of nationality and morality' and fortunately it happened on a good day. Usually, I don't reply to these hate tweets because I don't want these guys to get unnecessary attention but on that particular day, I woke up on the right side of the bed and had a funny answer to their tweet.
My sister, Shagun, was also ready to reply with her bikini picture but before that, the man deleted his tweet." For the uninitiated, rumours of Ranbir Kapoor dating Pakistani actress Mahira Khan started doing the rounds in early July, when they both walked the red carpet of the Global Teacher Prize Ceremony together in Dubai.
