It would not be wrong to say that Malaika Arora often finds herself at the receiving end of social media trolls. From making fun of her walking style from outside the gym or her yoga class to commenting on her personal life, social media users target her unnecessarily.
In fact, during one of the episodes of ‘Moving In With Malaika’, the model-actress gave it back to trolls in a stand-up comedy performance.
Now during a recent chat with comedian Bharti Singh in the latest episode of ‘Moving In With Malaika’, Malaika revealed that she gets upset when paparazzi click pictures which are uncalled for.
She said, “I have never scolded anyone unless someone pushed me or did anything. But what irritates me is you are clicking photos, yahan ke photos lo na (pointing towards the portion above her chest). They are clicking photos of this part and that part (points towards her chest and hips). The camera goes here and there. I have a problem with that.”
She added, “Why are you focusing on my a*, my t*s. I am very proud of my body. But then they say, ‘if you don’t want to show, then wear clothes which cover everything.’ Why? I want to wear such clothes, what is your problem? I will dress the way I want.” Malaika further revealed that she also gets annoyed because she too is ‘answerable’ to her family.
After talking about trolls, their conversation shifted to body positivity with Bharti Singh, who said that she is often made fun of for her body weight. Bharti added that trolls even call her “bean bag, rajayi (quilt)” and listening to this, Malaika smiled a bit. To which Bharti quipped, “Hasi toh aapki bhi nikal rahi hai (Even you want to laugh),” and Malaika denied it.
The comedian added, “I made this my plus point. Now even I enjoy it, laugh as much as you want. This is how I am. I will enjoy my paranthas, and I will drink my lassi.”
