Shama Sikander, who time and again has been on the receiving end of the moral policing happening on social media, clearly gave it back to the trolls like a pro! She wrote, "A woman has B***S...that's what makes her different than men and I'm grateful that I'm a woman and a blessed one indeed. Yes "I HAVE B***S" and nice ones indeed.. they are "juicy" and also are "melons " or whatever else you prefer calling them.

They're mine and I love them... #BodyShaming #NotTolerated #RespectWomen #LoveForBikini
