We all love those cute pictures of Taimur Ali Khan. We follow celebrities on Instagram to see what they're up to and where they are vacationing. Bollywood stars also use social media to stay in touch with their fans and engage with them. But there is a downside to the medium as well—it has become easy to be targeted by trolls and judged by everyone.
Every action of Bollywood celebrities is scrutinised these days, but their kids are not spared either. The families are subjected to harsh criticism and negative comments on social media. From Shah Rukh Khan's daughter Suhana to AR Rahman's daughter Khadija, many star kids have faced this and some have even spoken about it.
From her bikini pictures to her recent photoshoot for a magazine, Suhana Khan has faced a lot of hate on social media. While some people shout nepotism, there are others who comment on her looks and ask her to get plastic surgery. The 18-year-old commented on the trolls during an interview and stated that she has learned to tune it out, even though it does scare her that people can judge her so easily.
Pooja Bedi's daughter Aalia Furniturewala received a lot of negative comments on Instagram for sharing a picture in a bikini two years ago. Aalia was 19 years old at that time. Since then, she has stopped paying heed to the trolls and has become increasingly popular for her fashion choices. Aalia recently graduated from the New York Film Academy and might start her journey in Bollywood soon.
A fake account was created in Sara's name, making crass comments about other cricketers. This created a buzz on social media and people started targeting Sara with hate. Later, Sachin stepped in and released an official statement that Twitter needs to censor its accounts, as Sara was in no way connected to those comments. Recently, pictures of Sara at the Ambani wedding surfaced and she looked absolutely gorgeous!
For walking hand in hand with mother Aishwarya Rai Bachchan to touring the world with her, Aaradhya has faced a lot of trolling. This seven-year-old has been in the eye of the storm for way too long, so much so, that Abhishek Bachchan has even started calling out trollers on Twitter, stating that Aaradhya accompanies her mother to award shows over the weekends and attends school during the week.
Recently, Nysa's father Ajay Devgn in an interview asked trolls to leave his children alone. Nysa, his and Kajol's 15-year-old daughter, has time and again been called names on social media, her comments section flooded with body shaming remarks.
Akshay Kumar's son Aarav has become a special treat for shutterbugs because he is rarely ever spotted. The last time his pictures surfaced, Aarav was body shamed and called 'Canadian' by trolls. Akshay recently shared in an interview that Aarav hasn't yet decided if he wants to join the industry and is concentrating on his education.
Navya's mother, Shweta Nanda recently launched her clothing label called MXS. However, Navya modelled for the announcement shoot to support her mother. This was labelled nepotism when the stars began to share the post to congratulate Shweta on her new label.
Celebrities face a lot of censure for every little thing and many have admitted that it's part and parcel of being in the industry.
Recently, A.R. Rahman's daughter Khadija was criticised for wearing a niqab to a ceremony that celebrated a decade of Slumdog Millionaire. She shut down trolls immediately stating that it was her personal choice and that she is an adult who can make her own decisions.
