While smoke-shamming the actress, a user wrote, “And do you support Mahira Khan “a mother”,”Pakistani actress” smoking in public with Ranbir Kapoor?”
However, some twitterers also came out in support of the actress.
“Everyone’s bashing and slut-shaming @TheMahiraKhan, why because she was smoking a cigarette on streets?” posted one, while another tweeted, “Bashing Mahira for dating Ranbir wearing small dress and smoking is disgusting on so many level’s… She’s not your slave.”
There is no need of bashing her but do you support a "Pakistani","Muslim" "mother" actress smoking in public with another actor?
