Little did actress Shilpa Shetty realise that an innocuous walk with son Viaan will land her in an unending embarrassment on social media platforms.
A Bollywood page posted a photo of Shilpa with her son on Instagram with a caption that read, “Mommy Shilpa Shetty with son Viaan.” In the photo Shilpa was seen taking a brisk walk with son Viaan, who was seemingly on his way to school.
Shilpa was dressed in a printed high slit kurta, as she walked holding Viaan’s hand. What did not go down well with social media users was how her dress had left her legs exposed because of the angle with which the photo was taken.
This evoked angry responses from Bollywood fans. One fan wrote, “Did she forget her pajamas?” Another wrote, “What the hell itna bakwas fashion….” “Shilpa mam has forgotten to wear pants?…,” commented another follower. Another comment said, “Uff the tough routines of these mommys that she forgot to wear her pants.”
Some of the comments were so vile that they can’t be reproduced here.
Shilpa is not new to facing social media trolls. In June this year, she had faced incessant trolling after she called Prime Minister Narendra Modi a ‘yogi’ while commenting on the latter’s fitness video. In her response to the photos of Modi indulging himself in various workouts, Shilpa had written, “A true Yogi you are adarniya @narendramodi.”
In May this year, she was widely mocked by her followers after she posted a video of her son’s birthday celebration at an orphanage in Mumbai. Her fans her accused her of showing off what was essentially meant to be charity exercise.
