The Long, Long List Of Bollywood Celebrities Who Were Trolled For Ridiculous Reasons


From being judged by an audience of millions to the unrepentant media glare, Bollywood celebrities go through a lot. Each action, look, word, pimple and controversy is monitored and they are attacked viciously for any misstep. But I have to say, most of them deal with it gracefully.

Recently, Disha Patani experienced what we call a social media nightmare, all thanks to a now-corrected Instagram post. The actress, who is also known as a social media influencer, posted a promotional video for a mobile phone brand. The advertisement looked perfectly in place until someone noticed the caption. She wrote, “Hey – final video is here. Will mail you the high res video in something so please use that as the final video to be uploaded. Caption below.” Her 17.2 million followers couldn’t digest the error. The caption along with post quickly went viral and all hell broke loose.

Disha isn’t the only Bollywood celeb who became a victim of brutal trolling for a small error; stars like Anushka Sharma, Janhvi Kapoor, the Bachchans, and many more have also faced abrasive comments.

1. Anushka Sharma was trolled for praising a Google Pixel camera while posting from iPhone.

While promoting a Google Pixel camera, Anushka Sharma used her iPhone to tweet and that caught the attention of trollers. It didn’t take long for the tweet to become a butt of jokes. 

Anushka is often criticised for accompanying husband Virat Kohli and the Indian Cricket Team during their matches. She was recently trolled for arriving at Auckland with Team India as she was the only cricketer-wife who joined the team.  

2. Janhvi Kapoor faced flak for celebrating her birthday and going back to work after Sridevi’s demise.

A lot of things were said when Janhvi Kapoor went ahead and celebrated her birthday 10 days after the demise of her mother Sridevi. Janhvi also went back to the sets of Dhadak soon after the rituals were over. Trollers went after her and attacked her mercilessly. The young actress handled the situation gracefully. Read the note she penned down as she opened up about her grief for the first time in public.

3. Suhana Khan was trolled for being on a magazine cover.

Shah Rukh Khan’s daughter Suhana was roasted after she appeared on the cover of a leading fashion magazine in India. While the readers were expecting Suhana to first make her acting debut and then appear on cover shoots, Suhana’s appearance took everyone by surprise. With this, people were trying to make a point against nepotism, but the haters forgot all boundaries when talking about an eighteen-year-old girl. 

4. Amitabh Bachchan was trolled for bursting crackers on Diwali.

This Diwali, the nation decided to go cracker-free to control the pollution. However, Big-B posted two pictures with his family burning crackers and that did not go well on social media. One Twitter user wrote, “Burning crackers this Diwali! Not cool at all…#pollutionfreediwali.” Another one said, “Please stop using crackers …not even a single phuljhadi.”

5. Disha Patani was also trolled for her bold Diwali picture.

During Diwali, Disha Patani, who inspires many by posting her fitness routine and stylish looks, posted a picture on social media to wish her fans on the festival, but it started another controversy, for she was wearing a gorgeous lehenga with a Calvin Klein bra. To each her own, right? It’s something that the haters on social media still need to learn.

6. Esha Gupta was trolled for showing the finger in a post.

A post shared by Esha Gupta (@egupta) on Oct 26, 2018 at 8:13am PDT

Esha posted a video of hers wearing a bodysuit and showing the middle finger, which angered many. Many was called names one of them being ‘slut’, to which Esha gave a befitting reply in her next post.

She wrote, “SLUT- no it’s not what I’m calling myself, this is what all you ugly from the inside trollers have given me the name. The ones who get offended with whatever I do. Why is it ok for someone to insult a woman on the basis on how she’s living her life, but a man is loved the same way. Is it not the double standards. Yes m sexy, but when I wear a saree m told- trying to cover herself. When I put pictures in covered clothes- oh what is she trying to prove. But when I wear a bikini- omg she’s a slut, a bitch, a hoe. Why is it that my clothing and attitude bothers so many to give me a name tag and that’s when I was even called “shame on being an Indian”. Why is it that what good I do is not relevant but showing a middle finger gets you all crawl outta your bed n get on to try n troll me. A lot of you tried to shame me, but most of you supported and loved me. Just the way I love myself. Just how everyone should love themselves. And that love just keeps on growing. So this is to everyone who thought some random ass pathetic loser sitting in their cube trying to cyber bully you, You don’t matter. You never will. Today I wear it with pride. Cus haters gonna hate hate hate..”

7. Rhea Chakraborty was roasted for posting a picture with Mahesh Bhatt.

On Mahesh Bhatt’s birthday, Rhea Chakraborty posted a picture with him and people started comparing their relationship with that of Anup Jalota and Jasleen Matharu’s from Bigg Boss. However, Rhea had a befitting reply for trollers. In her next tweet, she wrote, “Tu kaun hain, Tera naam hain kya? Seeta bhi yahaan badnaam hui! If the trolls can hurl muck and filth of their minds, which comes out of their depraved souls, then all our claims of having moved away from the dark ages are bogus. Go enjoy your sickness.”   

8. Parineeti Chopra was trolled for colouring her hair red.

Parineeti has been criticised many times for either wearing a dress too tight or a drape too loose or about something she said in an interview. But recently, she stepped out in the city in her red hair look and she was made fun of. Illogical, isn’t it?

She was being compared to Katrina Kaif, who wore the same hair colour in Fitoor. Everyone kept commenting on how gorgeous Katrina looked and how Pari failed in creating the same look for herself. When she was about the look, she said it was because she wanted to try something she has never done before.

9. Neha Dhupia was criticised when she married Angad Bedi.

Neha Dhupia’s sudden marriage to Angad Bedi took everyone by surprise, but the story behind it made people gossip a lot and I mean, a lot. People were talking about Neha being the reason for Angad and Nora’s breakup and Neha’s pregnancy before it was announced. Things when too far with trolling, so much so that a user wrote, “2 sal chota hai tumse angad bedi..husband nehi bhai hai tumhara..rakhi phenao,” to which Neha replied, “thanks for the advise buddy! Now do me a favour…go get a life!”

10. In fact, Nora Fatehi was trolled for giving an evil eye to Angad and Neha.

While Neha was pregnant, Neha, Angad and Nora allegedly bumped into each other and the rumours of Nora giving an evil eye to the couple were in the air. This led to trolling. Nora eventually had to step in and tweet about it. She wrote, “My indifferent expression on my face in public may give ‘evil vibes’ but trust me at that moment I’m only thinking about whether im having a burger or pizza for dinner & waiting to get into my pjs. Im living my best life! No time to stare at people at eventsim way above that.”

11. Aishwarya Rai Bachchan was trolled for kissing Aradhya.

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, during her trip to Cannes, posted a picture of her kissing her daughter Aradhya. This made trollers unhappy and they started calling Aishwarya out for showing a behaviour that, as per the trollers, is unsuitable for a mother. Telling a mother how to love her child? Hmmm…not a smart idea. 

12. Junior Bachchan was taken a dig at for still living with his parents.

Hubby Abhishek is also familiar with the trolls and he’s a pro at dealing with them. A Twitter user tweeted,”Don’t feel bad about your life. Just remember @juniorbachchan still lives with his parents. Keep hustling everyone!” It didn’t take long for Abhishek to write a befitting reply for this one. He wrote, “Yes! And it’s the proudest moment for me to be able to be there for them, as they have for me. Try it sometime, you might feel better about yourself.”

13. Radhika Apte was trolled for posting a picture of her in a bikini.

Radhika Apte, the actress who is literally ruling the world of Netflix, was trolled for posting a bikin picture from a Goan beach. Speaking about the same, the actress said that she has always ignored the trolls and will continue to do so.  

14. Priyanka Chopra was trolled for her Met Gala look.

Remember that beige trench coat of Priyanka (yes, Ralph Lauren) that became all sorts of things on social media, from desert sand to a pochha? But PeeCee was quite a sport about it, she took a screenshot of every meme she could find on her and reposted them on her Instagram.
