Mumbai: Pakistani actor Mahira Khan was trolled on social media after some pictures surfaced on Twitter which showed her smoking along with actor Ranbir Kapoor.
The photographs, apparently clicked in New York, show the duo deep in discussion.
The comments on the Internet ranged from questioning Mahira, such as "how could a Muslim girl wear semi-naked dress" to others asking how a mother of one child "behave like this."
The "Raees" actor is a single mother and has a son, Azlaan.
But some social media users came forward in support of the actor, saying she is an adult and has all the right to conduct herself in the manner she deems fit.
Pakistani actor Ali Zafar too, defended Mahira in an Instagram post, saying, "Every woman has the right to make her own choices in life (as long as she's not hurting anyone else) just like we men do."
