Ayesha Takia, who is getting trolled on social media for her new look in which she appeared to have fuller lips and cheeks, has made a statement on the matter. According to her, some ‘vicious’ people and gossip columns have distorted the pictures.

Takia told Indian Express that because she is constantly in touch with her fans through Instagram, they believe her and still support her. “Online trolling and bullying has reached a new level I guess. A handful of vicious people and gossip columns have decided to totally morph and distort my pics but the truth will prevail as I’m on social media every day and shooting out and about people can see what I really look like and luckily I have amazing followers on Instagram who I interact with daily, so they have not believed these lies and supported me all the way,” she said.

The actor’s pictures from a recent event went viral a few days ago. While it is still not clear whether it was bad make up or if she had gone under the knife, Twitteratti seemed to have made up its mind on being nasty to the actor. She was trolled for ‘trying to look like Kim Kardashian’ and ‘ruining her beautiful face’.

Takia also reacted on the controversy with a picture on Instagram on Friday.

She shared a motivational quote from famous American burlesque dancer and model Dita Von Teese. “You can be the ripest, juiciest peach in the world and there’s still going to be someone in the world who hates peaches,” it reads.

In another pic shared on Sunday, she wrote that she doesn’t care about false rumours.

“Hey all you fabulous ppl, let’s be super proud of who we are right now coz it’s freakin 2017 and we ain’t letting no bullies bring us down. I love myself and you should love yourself too. Be who u wanna be n do what u wanna do, don’t allow insecure souls to try n calm down ur confidence. Be fabulous n #StopSelfieShaming , stop picking on ppl for who they wanna be it’s lame AF. Opinions are like a******s, everyone has one, so screw what others think and OWN it baby #ILoveMyself #dontCareAboutFalseRumours,” she wrote with the picture.

Her Instagram account, which is not verified, has 1.8 lakh followers.

The 30-year-old was last seen opposite Shahid Kapoor, in 2010 film Paathshala, a year after her wedding with Farhan Azmi, son of Samajwadi Party leader Abu Azmi.
