Some weeks ago, pics of mahira khan and ranbir kapoor smoking in the New york surfaced on the internet and finally went viral. mahira became relentlessly trolled - for smoking, for wearing a halter get dressed, for 'roaming with a hindu boy' and innumerable other things.

quickly after, ranbir broke his silence and stated in a declaration, "it's miles very unfair the way she is being judged and spoken about. what is also sad is the inequality in judgment just because she is a female."

Now, mahira has completed a whole u-turn and apologised for the viral photos. in an interview with something haute, she stated that she became "completely shattered and damaged" by means of all of the negative remarks directed at her. "i'd be mendacity if i stated that i determined proper off the bat that i would not respond to this controversy. and i am a very robust girl but whilst all of this passed off, i used to be completely shattered and broken. i might reflect onconsideration on posting a declaration each day. then i might stop myself because i just would not know what to mention," mahira said.

She introduced, "to be sincere, i recognize wherein all the complaint came from and it didn't come from a place of hate. i am no longer talking approximately the trolls but folks who had been without a doubt disenchanted to see the ones photos. it is the equal disappointment that my nani or my mamoo could have felt for the reason that. so even now once I meet an older woman who says that she failed to just like the photographs, i'm quick to apologise."
