Disha Patani has faced incessant trolling in the recent weeks for her perceived insensitive photos, posted during the festivals of Diwali and Christmas. On both occasions, the Baaghi 2 actor’s decision to greet her fans in wearing bra and bikini had earned her considerable criticism.
Her fans, 16.7 million on Instagram, had slammed her for being insensitive while accusing her of offending the sentiments of Hindus and Christians during their festivals. Unperturbed by online criticism, she had gone ahead to wish her fans Happy New Year while riding a water scooter wearing bikini.
Since then, she appeared to take a mini break from social media until Sunday, when she updated her Insta story with a photo of jalebi (popular Indian sweets). Disha posted the photo with a caption that read, “Finally found my jalebi. Cheat Day begins.” Her reference to cheat day was made in light of the actress being a health freak, always conscious of her body. Talking about her fitness routine, she had recently told Hindustan Times that fitness was a lifestyle for her. “You have to work on it every day. I work out in the gym, dance and practice mixed martial arts (MMA) too,” she had said.
Disha may not have many films under her belt, but she now has one of the most influential Instagram accounts in India. With 16.7 million followers, she now has an average engagement of 1.2 million per post.
She had recently told a website that if it wasn’t for her acting career in Bollywood, she would have become an Air Force pilot.
Disdha is rumoured to be dating Tiger Shroff and the couple have often been spotted holidaying and partying together. On professional front, she has signed up Salman Khan-starrer Bharat, which will be released during Eid this year.
