Mahira Khan and Ranbir Kapoor’s pictures, catching up outside a hotel in New York have taken the internet by storm. Why wouldn’t they? The two have been rumoured to have a “special bonding” since they were “caught” having a conversation at an event in Dubai.
But what was funny about this “breaking news” was the shock and hate people showed for something completely normal. A woman smoking and wearing what she thinks is flattering, is not a punishable offence, at least not in the US.
Tweets like “smoking is injurious to health” and claiming that Mahira “totally ruined her decent image” – were downright misogynist and lame. But we were glad to spot a few fearless fans that stood up for the actor, not caring about the hate comments that followed. Some even made hilarious memes to lighten up the mood. Check ‘em out!
She was only blowing out kisses, okay!
Mery khayaal mai ab sab sahi hai kisi ko @mahirahkhan se koi shikayat nahi honi chahiye . Hum sab ko apny apny packets pe nazar rakhi chahiye dosron k sutty pe nahi . Khawateen ka ehtram karen , nazar ka parda karen , khush rahen aur khush rehny den #respectwomen #lovepakistani #geoaurjeenydo #mahirakhan
Then she had some Pepsi to wash it down. Haha.
And the last but not the least.
Many celebs spoke up for Mahira despite the hate and some literally lashed out at the chauvinism. Kudos to them!
As for haters? Stop living under a rock.
