Ali Zafar Comes To Rescue Mahira Khan For Being Slammed For Smoking Cigarette

The pictures of Mahira Khan and Ranbir Kapoor smoking a cigarette during a movie break went viral yesterday and the trollers of social media took it on them to reprimand the actress for her bad habits. Even her revealing dress was a point of criticism for the trollers. She was slammed for smoking and wearing a revealing dress even after being a Pakistani and moreover a Muslim.

Among all the criticism, another Pakistani actor has come to the rescue of Mahira Khan and it is none other than our very loving Ali Zafar. Yes, the Mere Brother Ki Dulhan star took to social media to defend Mahira from all the trolls.

He posted a handwritten letter on Instagram which read, “What has happened to us? Have we lost all our sense of sensibility? Must we gossip, intrigue and the self-appointment right of judgement over restraint, grace, intolerance and compassion?”

“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,” read the post further.

“How we react defines our own character. Choose wisely, for we SHALL be judged,” he wrote concluding the letter.

The picture was shared with @mahirahkhan as the caption.
