Pakistani actress Mahira Khan was ruthlessly trolled earlier this year after pictures of her with Ranbir Kapoor from New York went crazy viral on the Internet.
Apart from speculation about an affair with Ranbir, Mahira also became the subject of crude criticism, particularly for smoking and wearing a short dress, as can be seen in the photos shared on social media. After days of silence on the matter, the actress has finally opened up about the controversy in an interview with SM magazine, and said her decision to not release a statement was not a deliberate one.
“I’m a very strong woman but when all of this happened, I was completely shattered and broken. I would think about posting a statement every day. Then I would stop myself because I just wouldn’t know what to say,” she told SM magazine.
