Veteran actress, Asha Parekh got mercilessly trolled on social media after her take on Indian women wearing western outfits. Speaking at the IFFI 2022, Asha talked about westernized culture and shared her views on Indian women copying actresses and wearing gowns at weddings. Not just this, the Kati Patang actress also body-shamed women for donning an outfit despite their size.

However, such strange and orthodox views coming out of the actress’ mouth made netizens upset, and they did not think twice about calling out her statements. Taking to Twitter, netizens trolled the veteran actress and even stated that such derogatory comments were not expected from an actress of her stature. One of the comments can be read as:

“Asha ji …!!! Of all the people you are saying this??? Are you really fatshaming women who want to wear what they want to at their own weddings? Should we now go and compare you to ur contemporaries??? We won’t cause we aren’t you!.”
