There is no denying that Bollywood celebrities mesmerize us with their acting skills, public gestures and their impeccable sense of style. They are an inspiration to many. In this day and age of social media, these stars are increasingly becoming more involved with their fans on these platforms. Be it sharing their personal pictures, or flashback momemets, or even life on the film sets, they are doing it all.While many fans love getting these rare peeks into their superstar's life, there are others who beg to differ. Many times a number of stars have fallen prey to online trolls for either their pictures or comments made on public platforms.Here are some instances where Bollywood stars were targeted by social media trolls.
Just 10 days after superstar Sridevi accidentally drowned in a hotel bathtub in Dubai, daughter Janhvi Kapoor turned 21. The young lady celebrated her birthday in a low-key manner, with her cousins and other family members turning up to cheer her up. Some pictures from the little get-together made their way online. But a section of users on the internet found it "insensitive" on Janhvi's part to celebrate her birthday within just a few days of her mother's death. Not just Janhvi, but the other Kapoors who were with her on her 21st birthday - Khushi, Sonam and Rhea Kapoor, Shanaya, Jahaan and Anshula Kapoor - were also trolled for sharing the birthday photos on social media."Touchwood, but if I would have lost (someone close), I would not be smiling for photos the way she is doing. No offence to anyone here," wrote a user on a group photo of the Kapoor cousins shared by Sonam.While there quite a few trolls, there were many who jumped to Janhvi's defence on Instagram saying, "Happy to see her trying to cope. Janhvi, don't let idiots tell you-you're a worthless person because you're not, you're one to strongest person I've seen. Happy birthday!"On the work front, Janhvi Kapoor is gearing up for the release of her debut film, 'Dhadak' alongside Ishaan Khatter.
